Payment on matchdays

Customer friendliness is important at FC Bayern Munich: the Allianz Arena listened to fans and introduced new matchday payment options in December 2018. As a result, payments can only be made with credit or debit cards, using either the contactless NFC method or chip and PIN, at all stations. It’s also possible to pay at the checkout with all smart mobile devices (smartphone, smartwatch etc.) contactlessly.

The prerequisite for using this convenient payment service with NFC (near-field communication) technology is a new-generation debit or credit card or any mobile payment system equipped with smart payment technology. This just has to be held a few centimetres over the NFC payment terminal and the amount is automatically debited. Alternatively, debit and credit cards can also be inserted and used for payment.

Where can I pay by card or smart mobile devices on matchday?

As of now, payment by credit or debit card is possible in the following areas of the Allianz Arena:

  • All kiosks on Level 2 and Level 6
  • Paulaner Fantreff South and North
  • FC BAYERN STORE plus all other FC Bayern Fan Shops on Level 2, Level 6 and the Esplanade
  • Arena Bistro
  • Mobile bars
  • At the automatic ticket machines in the multi-storey car parks

Information on cup deposits when paying by card or smart mobile devices:

The deposit will be credited to your account when you return the cup and place your card back on the reader. Please note that this credit may take a few days to appear in your account depending on the bank.
