Can Bayern Munich be also a basketball powerhouse in Europe? That’s the plan according to Petteri Koponen, who was added this season to the roster of the Bavarian club.

As Koponen explained in his blog:

So, after three years with FC Barcelona, I am now playing for FC Bayern Munich. They are both big clubs. Both of them are known everywhere because of football. Barcelona has more basketball tradition and has been one of the best teams in Europe for many years. Bayern Munich wants to get there, that is the goal! The club keeps improving every year and the goal is to get there, to become one of the best teams in European basketball.

This is one of the reasons that got me really excited when we were talking during the summer about me joining the team. They showed me their plans and goals, and they really want to be one of the best one day. They are moving towards that. The football players come to watch our games often, even if both teams are busy all season long with games and practices. We have our own gym where we practice all the time and play our games. We do some things together, pretty much as we did in Barcelona. There are always common things.
