2013 Audi Cup

The 2013 Audi Cup was the third edition of the Audi Cup, a two-day association football tournament that featured four teams, and was played at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany. The competition hosted the 2009 Audi Cup winners Bayern Munich, the 2012 Copa Sudamericana champions São Paulo, the 2011–12 Premier League champions Manchester City and perennial Serie A contenders Milan. The English and Brazilian clubs made their first appearances in the competition, while Bayern, as hosts, and Milan have been present in every Audi Cup so far. The winners of the tournament were Bayern Munich, who beat Manchester City 2–1 in the final. Milan defeated São Paulo 1–0 in the third place play-off.

Prior to the semi-final match between Bayern Munich and São Paulo, as the Bayern goalkeepers were warming up, advertising billboards located around the field were showing fan messages published via their Twitter profiles using the hashtag #HelloAudiCup. One of the displayed messages stated, Ei, Douglas, vai tomar no cu ". It was sent by DarkFabuloso, a fake profile that satirizes São Paulo player Luis Fabiano, and was inadvertently approved by the staff responsible for selecting and displaying the messages.
