In 1953, Bayern 07 Nürnberg became the first club from Bavaria to become German champions. In the 1970s they were followed by the 5-time German champions SV Würzburg 05 (’70, ’74, ’76, ’77, ’78), who also won the German Water Polo Cup in 1978.

The aim of the base is to bring very good and talented players from Bavaria to the national team and thereby establish the Bavarian clubs at the top of German water polo.In the long term, the goal is to rebuild the water polo division and to make the team sport popular and successful.
