The long wait is over: after almost seven months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic and the hosting of four UEFA EURO 2020 matches, the Allianz Arena, the FC Bayern Museum and the FC Bayern Store reopen their doors to visitors. Fans of the German record champions can experience their club once again, at least on non-matchdays, and there are several highlights waiting for visitors.
"We’re now looking forward to offering visitors young and old a varied and exciting experience under the FC Bayern banner outside of matchdays."
“After such a long wait, we can finally reopen the Allianz Arena on 10 July. A stadium lives from the people who visit - and we’ve missed them very much over the past seven months. We’re now looking forward to offering visitors young and old a varied and exciting experience under the FC Bayern banner outside of matchdays. Of course, we’d like to be welcoming spectators to games again from the new season. The hopefully successful test run with fans at the Euros this summer will show the positive power that football fans can spark. All of this happens under the most important premise, that the reopening will comply with all hygiene and safety requirements of the Bavarian state government, because the health of guests and employees is our top priority,” said Allianz Arena München Stadion GmbH Managing Director Jürgen Muth.
There are many new exhibits and highlights waiting for the visitors
The months after the reopening following the first lockdown have shown that the Allianz Arena’s hygiene concept works. Even now, the company is always adapting to the current conditions and requirements, without losing its appeal. In the club museum, the time without visitors was used for innovations. A trio of club legends celebrated milestone birthdays between September 2020 and March 2021, so there are three new special exhibitions for visitors to enjoy: “KAISER 75” in honour of Franz Beckenbauer, “Goals for the Ages. 75 Years of Gerd Müller” and “IL GRANDE LOTHAR” dedicated to Lothar Matthäus. All three special exhibitions examine the extraordinary trio as footballers and people off the pitch - and have been extended until the end of 2021. Another “must-see” for every fan: The showcase for the record year 2020 - including the freshly-arrived trophy for the FIFA Club World Cup.
The newly-opened “Allianz Arena Showroom” shines in the foyer of the club museum. A special all-round experience of around 35 square metres, the concept brings guests closer to the FC Bayern stadium in all its facets in a digital and interactive way. But the Arena Tour will also return for visitors. As usual, the current offer provides exciting insights and background information about one of the most beautiful stadiums in the world.
The stadium and museum will operate in compliance with applicable distancing and hygiene rules. The use of a mask is mandatory for visitors. Limiting the number of visitors ensures the prescribed minimum distance of 1.5 metres can be maintained. Hygiene protection is installed in the checkout and store areas, and all waiting areas include distance markings.
Tickets are available online.
