Arguably one of the most lethal teams in European football, FC Bayern Munich competes in Germany's top competitive league, the Bundesliga. With handfuls of national title and national cup wins, the franchise is widely regarded as one of the most successful in German history. FC Bayern was founded in 1900 and won its first national championship 32 years later. Since then it has gone on to become one of Germany's powerhouses, breaking several domestic records along the way. Its dominance also spilled into the European circuit as it went on to win three consecutive UEFA Champions League trophies from 1974 to 9176. FC Bayern hosts its home matches at the 71,000-capacity Allianz Arena in the northern part of Munich. Since its inception, several icons have represented Bayer Munich, including World Cup winners Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller and Lothar Matthäus.
