Allianz Arena

The Allianz Arena officially opened its doors to the public on May 31, 2005, and is the home of two long standing Munich football clubs - FC Bayern München and TSV 1860 München.

The design of the Allianz Arena, which represents an innovative interpretation of a football stadium of the future, has been developed by the Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron. The smooth outer façade, with its diamond shaped translucent shell onto which different plays of color can be projected, gives the building an almost magical sense of poetry. As for the inner life of the stadium, the three terraces that can hold up to 69,000 spectators ensure direct proximity to the action and thus the desired emotional involvement, in addition to the comfort of a modern stadium.

The Allianz Arena played a significant role in staging the 2006 World Cup, as the official Opening Game, four group games and a semi-final game for the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ took place in Munich, as well as being the venue for the 2012 UEFA Champions League final.

Allianz SE has acquired the naming rights for the football stadium as the core of a long-term marketing partnership with München Stadion GmbH. We at Allianz SE are proud to be associated with one of the most innovative and exclusive stadiums in the World.

Allianz Mini Arena

Since the opening of Allianz Arena in May 2005 more than 9.5 million football fans have visited the home games of FC Bayern München and TSV 1860 München. Beyond that, nearly 1.4 million visitors visited the arena on non-match days. These figures outline the public interest in the Arena. In order to share this fascination with people from all over the world, Allianz developed a Mini Arena. The reproduction, true to the original of the Allianz Arena, accurately depicts the original with its rhombic structure and the integrated alternating colours (white, red, blue).

In the context of the FIFA world championship the first version of the Allianz Mini Arena on a scale of 1:20 was opened at Munich airport in June 2006. The inside of the arena offers passengers an innovative lounge with high-quality and functional equipment so that they can comfortably pass the time while waiting for their flights. Since 2007 Allianz presents the »News to Go« concept in the Mini Arena at Munich airport. Via interactive touch screens, travellers can access important news from the sectors economics, politics, finances and sports free of charge.

Apart from Munich airport, the Allianz Mini Arena concept was also implemented at other international locations. So far different versions were available at the locations Zurich, Linz, Madrid, Paris, Seoul and Shanghai.

UEFA Champions League Final 2012

Being the iconic Arena in Munich, world famous for its normally red, blue or white solid exterior lighting, the Allianz Arena announced a special highlight of the football year 2012, for the first time shining brightly with a green and blue chequered “belly band” around the middle - the prestigious UEFA Champions League Final on May 19th.

The match between FC Bayern München and Chelsea FC was the biggest football game to be hosted at the Allianz Arena since the FIFA World Cup semi-finals back in 2006, reaching a global audience of 300 million people.

Following “clean stadium” rules the Arena was officially handed over to UEFA on May 12, one week before the highly anticipated match.

Destination Allianz Arena 3D Streetart

Proud for being the venue of the Champions League final, Allianz comissioned world famous UK street artist Joe Hill to create a special highlight for the fans of both finalist teams.

With this mission, the current Guinness World Record holder Joe created a spectacular interactive Allianz Arena 3D painting, that let the fans be part of the game.

The anamorphic artwork in size of 5x7 metres was presented in London as well as in Munich one week before the final and attracted more than 3.000 football fans.
