Great news for Bayern fans: the UEFA Champions League final on 25 May between Bayern and Borussia Dortmund will be screened at a Public Viewing event in the Allianz Arena.
FC Bayern is offering tickets to the Public Viewing free of charge. Fans may collect tickets from the Allianz Arena ticket booths starting Thursday morning, 16 May. Tickets must be collected in person; tickets cannot be reserved and/or dispatched by post. Each individual will be issued with a maximum of four tickets per person. On the day of the final, free parking is available in the Allianz Arena underground parking lot.
However, in contrast to the Bundesliga home matches, the capacity for the Public Viewing is restricted to 45,000 spectators. The lower and middle tiers will be open but the upper tier will remain closed. This is due to scheduled engineering work on the U6 underground/light rail line, causing capacity restrictions on public transport and corresponding limitations at the arena. On the day, U6 trains will only run to Alte Heide and Studentenstadt stations, with the rest of the journey completed by shuttle bus.
Due to these service restrictions, fans are requested to travel to the Allianz Arena by bicycle or organise car sharing. Furthermore, fans are requested to arrive as early as possible to ease congestion.
FC Bayern marketing director Andreas Jung commented: “We would like to thank Mayor Christian Ude, the city of Munich and the relevant authorities for their support. Without them, FC Bayern would not have been able to offer its fans this Public Viewing event."
The city of Munich will also stage a further Public Viewing event for the Champions League final at the Theresienwiese site in the city centre.
