This ground-breaking home for two football clubs, Bayern Munich and TSV 1860, was also the venue for the opening game and one semifinal of the 2006 World Cup.
The stadium’s unusual form and skin of translucent ETFE pillows make it instantly recognisable. The effect is enhanced at night by special lighting that allows the colour of the façade to change to match the colours of the home team playing that night.
A three-tier seating bowl ensures that all spectators have good views and are close to the action. The seating configuration accommodates all the requirements of two distinctly different home crowds. The seating bowl is also designed to take in the wide range of VIP and media provisions during and after the World Cup.
The main concourse creates a grand and open promenade with views into the main arena, while perimeter cascade staircases provide a direct link between the mid and upper tier concourses.
