The team said that the next match against FC Osburg on September 12 will see players enter the field “as they hold the hand of a German child and refugee child as a symbol of the integration of refugees into German society.”

Aston Villa fans will also carry banners reading “Welcome Refugees” during the match that will bring their team to Leicester City in the Premier League.

“Bayern believes it is a social responsibility to help the refugees,” said Bayern Munich chief executive, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
