Experience the fantastic atmosphere at Allianz Arena
The first thing you’ll notice about this beautiful, magnificent stadium in Munich is the impressive architecture. The stadium is truly one of a kind which makes it extra special. The Allianz Arena lights up entirely at night which is a beautiful sight to see. Every part of the exterior wall and the rooftop are handmade, which makes you appreciate the structure of the stadium even more. The stands located at the short sides are meant for the hardcore fans. You can fold the chairs, which creates enough space to stand and cheer the club on.
Opening Allianz Arena
The stadium in Munich was opened in 2005, but before the stadium opened, a scandal took place. The chairman and his son were suspected to have been involved in business bribery at the time of procurement of the project. The son got a sentence of four and a half years in prison and the chairman was forced to resign. Great football matches took place at the Allianz Arena after the opening. 2006 World Cup matches were hosted in the stadium and the UEFA Champions League finals was also hosted in the stadium six years later. Bayern Munich competed in the finals, and it had never occurred before that a home team played the Champions League finals in their own stadium. Furthermore, several matches of the European Championship of 2020 were played in the Allianz Arena.
