The largest, richest and most famous football club in Germany, getting tickets to watch Bayern Munich is something of a holy grail for football fans around the world.
Since 2005, the Munich-based footballing giants have played their home games at the impressive Allianz Arena, which has a capacity of 75,000 and lays claim to being the first stadium in the world with a full colour-changing exterior. If you’re thinking of a trip to the Bavarian capital and would like to see if you can attend a match during your stay, we’ve picked out three of the best sources for finding tickets.
Viagogo are a renowned ticket resale and exchange platform and our number one choice for finding Bayern Munich tickets. The website is easy to navigate and if you book more than one ticket, the seats will be alongside each other, meaning you won’t be separated from your companions. All tickets purchased on Viagogo are issued as E-Tickets, so you don’t need to worry about them getting lost or held up in the post.
As for availability, when we searched for Bayern Munich home games, there were tickets on offer for most matches, with pricing as low as €48 for certain less prestigious fixtures such as VfL Bochum. There are, however, some additional fees to look out for. If you’re a seller, Viagogo will charge you 15% of the total ticket price, while if you’re a buyer, you’ll have to pay 20%-30% of the total ticket price.
An alternative option are Ticketgum, who work with a vast network of suppliers to offer tickets advertised by people who can’t attend specific games and so are looking to sell their seat. This means that Ticketgum receive the tickets prior to reselling them, so there’s almost no risk of fakes. Tickets are usually shipped two to three days prior to the fixture at the latest, or you can make use of a collection service, with designated collection points where you can pick up your tickets, as well as hotel delivery. They have an excellent Trustpilot rating too, ensuring you can use their service with maximum confidence. When we searched for upcoming Bayern home games, we found slightly better availability than Viagogo, although ticket pricing was a bit steeper, with the cheapest being €75 for the same Bochum fixture. To give you a broad idea of add-on charges, for one ticket for this match they came out at €28, which includes service fee, delivery and applicable VAT.
