​Bundesliga games in China?

Herbert Hainer, a member of Bayern Munich's advisory board, says future Bundesliga matches could take place overseas, especially in China.

"Of course that could happen," Hainer, boss of German sportswear giants Adidas, told German magazine Sport Bild when asked about matches being hosted by Chinese cities.

"We have already seen in US sports that the so-called season-opener has more often taken place in other countries, so why not?

"We're talking about future vision and whoever starts it first, whether that is the Premier League or the Bundesliga. You can never ignore the national factor, but as a highlight, the icing on the cake, it could be a reality."
