Bayern Munich to play charity match in Japan

Bayern Munich to play charity match in Japan

Bayern Munich says it plans to travel to Japan after the Bundesliga season ends to play a charity match for victims of the earthquake and tsunami that hit the country.
Last season's German champion and Champions League finalist said Tuesday that it is still consulting with the Japanese football federation on a date for the match.
It didn't specify who the opponent would be but said it has suggested the week between May 17-25 as a possible time for the trip.
The club says it wanted to show solidarity with the Japanese people. Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says Bayern will pay for all its travel costs and all takings from the match will go to victims of the disaster.
