Due to the competitive nature of sport, Bayern Munich has scouts all over the world. However, most of the scouting happens within a few hours from Munich.

Talent Days

As part of the restructuring and to help find players for the Junior Team, Bayern Munich has developed a talent day where up to 500 boys are scouted. The Talent Days last an entire weekend. The key points that are looked for at the event are heart and soul along with movement and coordination. The format that is used is Street football which is able to show how the players conduct themselves during a game. Players who are chosen are players who meet the requirements above along with where the family lives. Bayern Munich don't accept players who don't live near Munich. Every kid gets a report from the club. An average of seven kids will make it to the Bayern Munich Junior Team during Talent days.

FC Bayern II

The penultimate stage for youngsters at Bayern is Bayern Munich II, who currently play in the Bundesliga 3, of German football.
