At the annual general meeting on November 25th, members and fans of FC Bayern Munich want to ensure that the parent club exerts influence on FC Bayern München AG, the professional division of the German record champions, so that the sponsorship contract with Qatar Airways expires in 2023 and in the future will not conclude any contracts with the airline owned by the emirate or other companies in majority Qatari ownership.

The Mainz lawyer Michael Ott as well as bloggers and journalists who are well-known in fan circles are behind the application received by the association on Friday.

They also want to change the articles of association so that a three-quarters majority at the general meeting would require the parent club's stake in FC Bayern AG to fall below 75 percent.

Substantial parts of the fan scene view the Qatari sponsorship, which has supported the club since 2016, very critically due to the violations of human and freedom rights in Qatar.
