Without question the largest, richest and most famous club in Germany, Bayern Munich have gained such a foothold over the Bundesliga that they have won the German Championship for the last five years running. Since 2005, the club has played their home games at the impressive Allianz Arena, which has a capacity of 75,000 and is also the first stadium in the world with a full colour changing exterior.

The Bundesliga season runs from August to May, interrupted by a two-week Winter break from late December to early January so that the players can recharge the batteries at a time of the year when German temperatures can often fall below freezing. Each club play 17 home league games a season, plus a handful of domestic cup games and, in Bayern Munich’s games, several European games too (they always qualify for European competition). you’re thinking of a trip to the Bavarian capital, you can look up fixtures for the rest of the 2019/20 season on Bayern’s official club website, or at several other online sources.
Operating in the online ticket exchange sector for more than 10 years, Livefootballtickets offers football fans the chance to buy and sell tickets for fixtures across the globe. Both independent sellers and official vendors use the website, and Livefootballtickets take a 10% cut from each transaction, which covers their ticket delivery expenses. When we searched for Bayern Munich tickets for the 2019/20 season, we found options for every home game, with tickets starting at £108 for less prestigious games such as Bayern vs FSV Mainz 05 at the end of August. The website also offers a dedicated 24/7 Live Chat & customer support service, and you can track delivery to avoid last minute nerves too. Livefootballtickets also go to great lengths to reassure you in the event of something going wrong with your ticket, pledging a 150% money-back guarantee.
Viagogo is a 3rd party online ticket shop where people can buy and sell tickets. The website is used by everyone from individuals looking to shift spare tickets to companies whose entire business model is the sale of event tickets. The site is simple and intuitive to use, and you can pick the currency that prices are shown in, as well as the language. Another useful feature is that the number of tickets remaining for a particular event is also displayed. When we searched for games at the Allianz Arena, we were pleasantly surprised to see availability for all of the upcoming fixtures. Also pleasing was the cost – especially as users can sell tickets for whatever price they want. Additionally, if you’re looking to attend a game with a large group of friends or colleagues, the site lets you book up to 20 tickets per match, while for some clubs they also offer downloadable e-tickets.
As we mention above, tickets for Bayern home games can be pretty hard to come by, with cheap prices and high demand causing most games to sell out long in advance. However, the club itself does offer a couple of ways of getting a ticket through the official channels. One of these is the club’s secondary market where fans can sell tickets to each other in a secure fashion with no mark-up aside from transaction fees. Priority for these tickets goes to official club members, but around a week or so before a match any remaining tickets will go on general sale. You can access this service by registering through Bayern’s official website. The second option is by purchasing a tour package officially operated by the club and combining match-day tickets with overnight hotel stays in Munich. However, this option can be very expensive.
