Maybe you may have already seen that I had recently resigned here with FC Bayern München. It was a very thought out decision since being an American in a foreign country and already being a long time away from home, I naturally had to consider all options.

It however at the same time also seemed to be a fairly easy decision for me. Soccer is a passion of mine and for me, being here allows me to live out my passion to the fullest and to embrace the many positive aspects of being away from home and in another country. Therefore, I can say that I am happy to be staying and to be a part of FC Bayern München for the next few years. I look forward to it, to grow as a player and an individual and to develop with the club.

Gina Lewandowski blog on Women's Soccer United

I would first like to start out by introducing myself a bit. I am a 29 year old professional soccer player living in Munich, Germany. I grew up in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania and attended Lehigh University from 2003-2007.

After graduating, I explored the idea of playing soccer overseas since there was no women’s professional soccer league in the US at the time. With the help of relatives living in Germany, I landed a gig with 1.FFC Frankfurt in the summer of 2007. I played there for 5 years until moving in 2012 to FC Bayern München where I am currently finishing out my second season. In 2011, I was also fortunate to play one season with the WNY Flash in between my seasons with 1.FFC Frankfurt. As for my future plans, that is still in the works.

My hope for this blog is to share a part of myself and some of my experiences I have had living and playing overseas for the last 7 years, as well as to keep you updated on my current season. Naturally, I am also open to any requests or topics that may come across as of interest to you. So feel free to contact me at any point. Read the rest of this entry →
