2013 Audi Cup

The Audi Cup is a biennial two-day pre-season football tournament that features four teams, and is staged at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, before the start of the Bundesliga season.

History[edit]

The first Audi Cup in 2009 was organised and promoted by car manufacturer Audi AG to celebrate their 100th year of trading and was won by hosts Bayern Munich. It was held in place of the Franz-Beckenbauer-Cup, which took place in 2007, 2008 and 2010. The second edition of the Audi Cup took place in 2011 and was won by Spain's Barcelona. Bayern Munich won their second Audi Cup in 2013 with a 2–1 win over Manchester City.
