The foundation of Nepal's first FC Bayern Munich fan club was celebrated with a loud "Mia san mia!" on Wednesday, 18th October 2017. The chairmen of the association had invited to the opening ceremony, which attracted numerous young Nepalese in red jerseys. The fan club is not only intended to express the ties to German football, but has set itself the goal of supporting social projects in Nepal.

Present were Mr. Nabin Pande, first chairman of the association, Mrs. Shikha Prasai, president of the Kathmandu Kickers, and Mrs. Paula Werner from the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Kathmandu. The German Embassy actively supports sports promotion programs in Nepal. Within the framework of the cultural and educational policy of the Federal Foreign Office regular courses for local athletes in different fields of sports are promoted.

After the opening ceremony the young football fans ran towards the nearest football pitch as a matter of course and ended the evening with a match.

The German Embassy donated footballs and congratulates the "Mia san Mia" Fanclub very warmly and is looking forward to a sporting commitment!
