The defending champions will be looking to get their season under way with a strong start against Hoffenheim under new manager Niko Kovac
Bayern Munich begin the defence of their Bundesliga title in late August, starting with a tough opening fixture against Hoffenheim.
The full league fixture list was released on Friday , with Bayern beginning on August 24 following a string of pre-season matches to be played in the United States and Germany against some high-profile clubs.
New head coach Niko Kovac will begin his first campaign in charge of the Bundesliga champions against Julian Nagelsmann’s side, as well as the likes of Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke in the opening weeks of the season.
To prepare for the new term, however, Bayern have the opportunity to clash with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Manchester City.
Here are all the details you need to know about Bayern’s new fixtures for the upcoming season.

Bayern Munich will be joining the likes of other big-name European clubs in the United States to compete in the International Champion’s Cup, which also involves Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund.
The German champions will first begin their pre-season against Paris Saint-Germain in Austria on July 21 before heading to America to clash with Juventus at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
They then face both Manchester clubs – first Manchester City in the ICC – before travelling back to Munich where they clash against Manchester United at the Allianz Arena.
Their final friendly actually comes after their opening Bundesliga game, to be played against Major League Soccer side Chicago Fire at home venue Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich will be eager to get their season under way as a slew of their players – such as Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels and Joshua Kimmich – look to put their World Cup disappointment behind them.
Among the big games to look forward to is Der Klassiker against rivals Borussia Dortmund, with the first edition set to take place in early November at the Signal Iduna Park and the return bout set for next April.
