FC Bayern München Basketball GmbH, commonly referred to as Bayern Munich or FC Bayern, is a professional basketball club. As more and more actual sports clubs start training their eSports branches, it is not a surprise to see FC Bayern in Esports.
The team they are now forming will be called “Bayern Ballers Gaming”. To achieve this, FC Bayern created a partnership with Munich sports marketing agency Rapid Peaks. They will naturally be specializing in NBA 2k19.
NBA 2K19 is the newest publication of a basketball simulation game. It has been very popular in the eSports sector, especially in the USA, and this actual sports team is heading for the kill.
Adrian Sarmiento, FC Bayern Basketball Chief business officer said: “Rapid Peaks is a strong partner that will support us with its sports marketing expertise to realize the potential of Bayern Ballers Gaming at all levels.”

Even though this is a videogame team, like in a true sports team, fitness is not forgotten. With that in mind, FC Bayern in Esports doesn’t neglect fitness and nutrition, which are part of the training too.
Adrian Sarmiento said: “eSports is an international trend topic and growing at a rapid pace – Therefore it was a great honor for our official team to get the opportunity at the ISPO Munich 2019 to show how spectacular a game on the virtual basketball court can be.”
