Host city focus: Munich Euro 2024 fixtures, stadium and more

Our host city focus shines the spotlight on Munich Euro 2024.

Its stadium, the Allianz Arena – referred to as the Fußball Arena München for all UEFA and FIFA competitions – is arguably the most prestigious of all the Euro 2024 stadiums selected as host venues.

But, just in case you are not familiar with the ground, this article will take a deep dive into the facility and ensure you know everything there is to know about the Fußball Arena München ahead of the tournament.

Key Munich Euro 2024 stadium facts

  • Location: Munich, Germany
  • Year Opened: 2005
  • Capacity: 75,024 (70,000 for international and European matches)

As alluded to, this ground is more commonly known as the Allianz Arena, but due to rules put into place by UEFA and FIFA, cannot use that name in all competitions that fall within the governing bodies' jurisdiction.

It is the home of footballing giants Bayern Munich and is one of the most iconic stadiums in world football.

A brief history of the Allianz Arena

When the site officially opened in 2005, it was owned jointly by Bayern Munich and 1860 Munich, each of whom held a 50% stake in the facility. However, in 2006, the latter sold their half of the ownership rights to Bayern in order to raise funds amid a financial crisis at the club.

Since then, it has hosted matches at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the 2012 UEFA Champions League final and will host an array of fixtures at the upcoming Euro 2024 as well as the 2025 Champions League final.

For over 10 years, the official museum of Bayern Munich has also been located within the ground.

It is an incredibly modern stadium and features several revolutionary pieces of technology, including a luminous exterior – the first of its kind, which should be no surprise considering the construction of the ground cost a whopping €340 million.

How many games will Fußball Arena München host at Euro 2024?

The stadium will host a total of six matches at the tournament across a variety of different stages. Those fixtures are as follows (all times are local):

Group Stage

  • Germany vs Scotland – June 14 – 9pm
  • Romania vs Ukraine – June 17 – 3pm
  • Slovenia vs Serbia – June 20 – 3pm
  • Denmark vs Serbia – June 25 – 9pm

 Rules at Allianz Arena for Munich Euro 2024

UEFA states that even if you are a regular visitor to the ground it could operate differently than usual. There are several stadium rules for the site outlined by the organisation ahead of the tournament, which are as follows:

  • No bags greater than the size of A4 will be permitted within the premises
  • Only power banks no larger than your phone will be allowed inside the ground
  • A valid form of ID upon entry is mandatory
  • No professional cameras or cane umbrellas (regular collapsable umbrellas will be permitted)
  • Smoking of any kind including the use of cigarettes and e-cigarettes is strictly not allowed

Matchday travel for Munich Euro 2024

Sustainability is a massive goal of UEFA's at this tournament, and as such, all fans travelling in Germany on, or indeed before matchday, have been urged to opt for public transport over other methods such as driving.

Thankfully, any supporter with a ticket for a match taking place within the Fußball Arena München are granted a 36-hour travel pass at no additional cost for the entire MVV network. The pass is activated from 6am on matchday until 6pm the following day.

Public transport in England is notoriously unreliable and to be honest, pretty useless, but in Germany, it is the complete opposite. An influx of fans during Euro 2024 could potentially affect its reliability, but a rough guideline for some key journey travel times within Munich are as follows:

  • Central Station to Munich Fan Zone  – 20 minutes
  • Central Station to stadium – 35 minutes
  • Airport to stadium – 60 minutes
  • Fan Zone to stadium – 25 minutes

Disabled facilities at Allianz Arena

Like many modern grounds, the Allianz Arena is equipped with several facilities to ensure all disabled fans are able to enjoy the matchday experience to the fullest.

For those that require accessible parking spaces, permits are available to be requested during the ticket application process, although these are not guaranteed and are on a first-come-first-serve basis. While audio-descriptive commentary for those with vision impairments will also be provided at the ground, the exact details of which will be released closer to the tournament.

Finally, there is also a wheelchair loan service in place at the stadium and several accessibility-dedicated volunteers will be able to assist your needs on the day.

We hope everyone visiting the Fußball Arena München has a memorable and pleasant experience during their time in Germany.
