When a school in the town of Dollogozhda in Macedonia was readying to build a small stadium for its students, they couldn’t have imagined in their wildest dreams that one of the biggest clubs in the world would help complete the project.
But when Bayern Munich decided to renovate the South Stand at the Allianz Arena this summer to make it standing room-only, an opportunity arose. Hundreds of old seats were up for grabs, and a member of a worldwide Bayern fan club wrote to the team to see if the school could have 100 of the seats to help fill their stadium.

Not only did Bayern donate 100 seats, they upped to offer to 255 seats, more than doubling the original request. Now, the stadium stands full and beautiful for the students and community to use.

At the grand opening, they held a tournament with the students to celebrate the generous gift. A small gesture goes a long way. Bravo, Bayern!
