Jürgen Muth, CEO of the Allianz Arena München Stadion GmbH, calls the summer months the "match free time" when there is no football at the FC Bayern home ground – this period can in no way really be called a summer break. Once again this year, after the end of the Bundesliga season, there is plenty of work underway at the Arena with the implementation of numerous building projects and innovations so that the home of the German record champions will continue to rate as one of the most modern stadiums in Europe:
Spectators coming to the Allianz Arena to see the Audi Cup on 30/31 July 2019 will find the following changes:
Licence plate recognition in car parks P1 to P3
Goodbye to car park tickets: A new parking system with licence plate recognition has been installed in car parks P1 to P3 at the Allianz Arena. That makes payment of parking charges simpler and easier than ever before. The vehicle registration has to be submitted beforehand via one of the online registration portals* at fcbayern.com, allianz-arena.com or the FC Bayern app and departure activated on the matchday booked. On leaving the car parks, the registration number is recognised by cameras at the exits and the barrier will open automatically.
Alternatively it is also possible to input the registration number and pay the parking fee on site at one of the six ticket machines in the car parks. In order to avoid long queues at the ticket machines after the game comment it is recommended to register the vehicle registration number via the online registration portal beforehand and to pay the parking fee or do it at the ticket machines before going to the match.
(*only available in German language at the moment)
The Arena Card can continue to be used for exiting car parks P1 to P3. This requires a credit of at least €10 on the card.
Payment by debit or credit card now available everywhere
Last December, alternative payment methods to the Arena Card were introduced at most of the pay stations at the Allianz Arena and now it is possible to pay with debit or credit cards, contactless with many cards, across the board. The tried and tested Arena Card will continue to be accepted as a payment method. At mobile drinks stands it is only possible to pay with debit or credit cards.
New visitor entrance enables complete segregation
An exclusive entrance for our visiting fans has been set up at the visitors coach park (formerly North coach park). In addition, away fans who travel to the Allianz Arena on the underground will no longer access the south entrance via the promenade but will instead be led via a footpath to the new visitor entrance. Tickets for the away end are only activated for access via the visitor entrance and it is no longer possible to gain access via another entrance. At the end of 2019, the new visitor car park (cars and coaches) with connection to the coach park will open. That will make the Allianz Arena one of the few stadiums worldwide that can implement a complete segregation of home and away fans.
New left luggage options
The old containers used for left luggage outside the stadium will in future be replaced by fixed deposit points in the former ticket points East (now Service 2) and West (Service 3), at the ticket office North (Service 4) as well as at the visitor entrance.
