Bayern Munich and MLS club FC Dallas have launched a youth development partnership.

The two clubs will "come together to exchange talent, allowing young players to experience different coaching styles and settings to enhance their development," Bayern said in a statement on their official website.

Bayern, who opened an office in New York in 2014, are looking to "help support the growth of soccer in the U.S.," internationalisation executive Jorg Wacker said.

"The United States is home to our very first international office, highlighting our commitment to engaging and growing Bayern's fan base in the Americas."

Both clubs announced that opportunities for youth teams to play fixtures against one another were also part of the partnership.

Young Dallas players will also get the chance to refine their skills at Bayern while remaining on the books of the MLS club.
