Bayern Munich freeze season ticket prices for fifth campaign in succession
Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have announced that season ticket prices will remain unchanged for a fifth consecutive season.
A standing ticket on the southern terrace at the Allianz Arena will cost €140 for the Bundesliga season and provide the possibility to buy tickets for Champions League and DFB Pokal games at reduced prices.
A similar standing season ticket on Borussia Dortmund's "yellow wall" costs €215.
"Football in the Allianz Arena should be available to watch for everyone in our society," Bayern wrote in a letter to season ticket holders.
The club said they offered value for even exclusive seats, saying: "Real Madrid charges almost €2,000 for a Category 1 ticket. Bayern's, at €750, is considerably cheaper."
However, the club warned that prices were set to rise from the season after next, in line with inflation.
Neighbours 1860 Munich, who won promotion from the fourth-tier Regionalliga last season, will charge €222 for a season ticket on the Grunwalder Stadion's western terrace in 3-Liga, the lowest tier of German professional football.
1860 left the Allianz Arena in 2017 and share the Grunwalder with Bayern's reserves, who finished runners-up to them in the Regionalliga last season.
