Why anglicise only half of the name?

"Bayern" is considered as the actual name of the club while "Munchen" is not. Names don't get translated while location do, which is way this happens (and not only to Bayern).

unless you are an old mexican broadcasting NFL

The official name is Fußball-Club Bayern München e.V. I don't understand what makes Bayern the "actual part of that name.

Fuck off, my great great grandfather came straight from Berlin to New York

Probably Bayern or Bundesliga's marketers decided to push that name.

Easton Wilson

I'm not saying it's the right way, just how most people think or assume it is.
This is just an arbitrary thing people do, just like how they call Atletico Madrid like that even though that "Atletico" in the official name is worth as much as the F in "Arsenal FC"

Kayden Campbell

So nobody of relevance to you. You probably don't even know his name. No one in your family and certainly not you even know a word of German.

You're an American and nothing else if your family has been here for 2+ generations, meinen dickes Kümpel
