The English international Georgia Stanway has renewed her contract with FC Bayern and will stay in Munich until at least 2026.
The 24-year-old European champion and runner-up world champion with the English Lionesses has been playing for the Munich team since summer 2022 and has scored ten goals in 37 competitive games so far.
Stanway has been sharing the captaincy with Glódís Perla Viggósdóttir and Sarah Zadrazil since this season and has settled in well in Munich in just one year.
“For me, it feels like home here, which is very important for me. This is the best place for me and this is where I see my future.
“The opportunity to extend your contract with FC Bayern and the fact that the club also wants it is a great honor,” says the England international on the club’s website.
Stanway always leads with ambition and achievement: “As a football player and as a professional athlete, you are here to assert yourself and we as a team are here to win. I think that goes without saying. I am very ambitious, so I will do everything I can to help the team, both on and off the pitch.”
The Englishwoman wants to follow the German championship with more titles: “My favorite moment of last season was definitely winning the championship. The week before the last league game was the longest week ever. And then finally playing against Potsdam and scoring a goal in the first few minutes was a great feeling. Lifting the championship trophy at the end was something very special. Once you get a taste for it, you definitely want to experience it again.”

The 28-year-old Icelander and new Bayern Munich captain has been playing for the Munich team since summer 2021 and is a mainstay in head coach Alexander Straus’ team.
Viggósdóttir was the only outfield player in the entire Bundesliga to be on the pitch every minute last season and therefore played a large part in the German championship.
And that is said to have been just the beginning: “We have started a really interesting and great process here. This is something I want to continue to be a part of. It’s fantastic that I can stay here for three more years. I’m very happy about it and want to contribute as much as possible to the team,” says the Icelander.
