Arsenal fans in Munich: Full matchday guide to Allianz Arena away section

In the Champions League, Arsenal have been handed about as tough a route to the final as you can get. Arsenal fans heading to the Allianz Arena away section were certainly having a good time as kick-off approached, with the beer flowing and spirits high.


And of course, an away day for the Gunners wouldn't be complete without a rousing chorus of ‘Tottenham get battered' would it?


Here’s our complete guide for any travelling fans.

How many Arsenal fans are going to Munich?

Arsenal have been given an allocation for 3,779 away tickets for the game at the Allianz Arena. However, this is Arsenal’s first Champions League quarter final since they were beaten 6-3 on aggregate by Barcelona in 2010.

The fact that Theo Walcott, Cesc Fábregas and Nicklas Bendtner were Arsenal’s goalscorers in the tie tells you all to need to know about how long Arsenal fans have had to wait for this. For that reason, you can expect a lot more than the 3,779 supporters who have tickets to be making the journey.

Despite this, Arsenal fans are actually no strangers to Munich. The sides have met eight times in the last 11 years, with four of those meetings coming at the Allianz Arena. Remarkably, and as Arsenal fans will no doubt be aware of, the London club have lost 5-1 in each of the last three meetings.

Where do Arsenal fans sit at the Allianz Arena away section?

Arsenal fans will be sat on the North side of the stadium, in the upper tier. Supporters should head to blocks 339-347. 

Full fans’ matchday guide for Bayern Munich vs Arsenal 

There may well be a host of travelling Arsenal fans who will know Munich quite well after the trips they’ve had there. For those that don’t, or those who want to forget their recent journeys to Bavaria, here’s our full matchday guide.

Where to eat and drink for Arsenal fans in Munich 

Bavaria is, of course, famous for its sausage and beer. If it’s tradition that you’re after then head to Nürnberger Bratwurst Glöckl am Dom, at Frauenplatz 9. One of the most famous traditional Bavarian spots, here you’ll find more varieties of würst than you’ve ever heard of, accompanied by huge tankards of Augustiner-Bräu, the famous Bavarian lager. Nürnberger Bratwurst Glöckl am Dom is also well-placed for getting the train to the game, as it is right next to Marienplatz (see below).

Hofbrauhaus at Platzl 9 is similarly traditional but a little less gourmet. A 3-floor beer hall which was opened in the 16th century, the place does everything from suckling pig to spätzle, German egg pasta. Bear in mind that this is a popular spot for Bayern fans, so it might be best not to go in Arsenal colours.

If you don’t have a ticket for the match and you’re looking for somewhere to watch the game, there are two Irish pubs to check out – Killian’s at Frauenplatz 11, and Kennedy’s at Sendlinger-Tor-Platz 11. Both are friendly spots, and should mean that, even if the game doesn’t go well, you won’t be surrounded by jubilant Bayern fans.

Ticket collection info for Arsenal fans in Munich

How to get to the Allianz Arena: Guide for Arsenal fans in Munich

As you’d expect for such a large and iconic stadium, getting to the Allianz Arena is not too difficult.

If you’re travelling by public transport then, from the city centre, head to Marienplatz, the city’s main transport hub, either by walking or taking the S-Bahn. From Marienplatz, take the U6 underground line to Fröttmanning, which is a 15 minute walk from the stadium. From Marienplatz, the total journey time to the Allianz Arena is around half an hour.

Unlike many larger stadiums, the Allianz Arena is actually pretty well equipped for parking. Those driving on the A9 motorway should take the 73 exit to München-Fröttmaning-Süd, and those approaching on the A99 motorway should take the 12b exit to München-Fröttmaning-Nord.

Once you are in the vicinity of the stadium, follow signs for Away Fans Parking. Car park spaces cost €12 if booked in advance, or €15 if booked on the day. There are machines to pay on site, but long queues mean you should book in advance on the club’s website.

If you are cycling to the ground, there are places to lock up at the Busparkplatz Nord, which is conveniently on the right side of the ground for away fans.
