Bayern Munich have announced that they will hold a training camp for refugees entering Germany in an attempt to help ease the current crisis in the continent.

Europe is struggling with a refugee crisis, with Germany at the epicentre of the trouble, and Bayern have now revealed that they will take steps to help young people who have entered the country.

Those involved in the camp will receive German language classes, meals and football equipment, while Bayern hope to raise €1 million from a friendly match for refugee projects.

"Bayern sees it as his social responsibility to help the refugees, needy children, women and men, to help them and to accompany them in Germany," chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Bayern’s official website.

Bayern’s players will enter the pitch with a German child and a refugee prior to their next home game on September 12, against FC Augsburg.
