Allianz Arena sold out for UEFA Champions League Final screening

Allianz Arena

The UEFA Champions League Final will take place at the Wembley Stadium on May 25, while 45,000 fans are set to support FC Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena during a live screening.

The ticket sale started on Thursday at 10 am and all the 45,000 tickets were sold out within six hours. Bayern fans arrived at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night and they camped infront of the stadium to secure one of the front spots in the queue.

The Allianz Arena will be prepared with a huge screen on the pitch to guarantee a perfect view to the maximum number of fans. The stadium has normally a capacity of 71,137, but the capacity will be reduced for the live screening due to the huge screen and its location on the pitch.

The 45,000 lucky ticket holders are looking forward to the opportunity to watch the screening of the final against rivals Borussia Dortmund at their very own backyard, which hosted Bayern’s UEFA Champions League Final defeat to Chelsea a year ago.
