General information about the Allianz Arena

The Allianz Arena, opened in 2005 and home to both major Munich clubs, Bayern and TSV 1860, was designed purely as a football stadium. The architecturally unique arena was constructed in under three years. Read on for comprehensive facts and figures about the state-of-the-art stadium in the heart of Europe.

Construction dates

Foundation stone laid on 21 October 2002

Owners

On 27 April 2006, FC Bayern Munich temporarily acquired 100% of the shares in the Allianz Arena after purchasing TSV 1860 Munich’s 50% share in the holding company, Allianz Arena Munich Stadion GmbH, which the clubs had founded together.

However, TSV 1860’s right to repurchase their 50% share in Allianz Arena Munich Stadion GmbH until 30 June 2010 was officially rescinded on Friday, 25 April 2008. All three parties agreed to relieve TSV 1860 of its obligations, which were then transferred to FC Bayern Munich AG, currently the Allianz Arena’s only stockholder.
