FC Bayern Munich will play Manchester United on Sunday 5 August in what promises to be a highlight of the pre-season programme for Niko Kovac’s side. The record German champions will host the record English champions at the Allianz Arena, with kick-off at 20:15 CEST.

The friendly against José Mourinho’s men will also be the grand premiere for the new-look Allianz Arena. Following 1860 München’s departure last year, the stadium has been given a colourful facelift during the close season and the match against United will offer spectators a first glimpse at the new red-and-white design of the stands and the graffiti artwork produced by fans. On top of that, the club will be putting on various activities for fans around the Allianz Arena on the day of the game against the three-time European champions from England.

Category | Adults | Concessions
Category 1 | €50 | €25
Category 2 | €40 | €20
Category 3 | €30 | €15
Category 4 | €20 | €10
