Munich's packed build-up programme

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue May 15, 2012 7:30 pm

The pubs will be packed, the hotels are full, and the public transportation system will be pushed to the limits. Let no-one be in any doubt: Munich is buzzing ahead of the Champions League final. Every Bayern fan wants to be there when their heroes in red reach for the European crown, and football fever has gripped the city. An extensive programme of events precedes the big day, as we review here.

Champions Festival at Olympic Park
'Join the Game' is the motto of the Champions Festival at the Olympic Park. Starting at midday on Wednesday, UEFA hosts an extensive football, fan and family festival, to which admission is free. The festival ends on Saturday at 8pm.

Each of the four days, to be attended by Champions League final ambassador and FCB legend Paul Breitner, features a different theme. Wednesday is Grassroots Day, incorporating a tournament and training schedule for kids and youths. A Museum of Champions is packed with mementos of great players and clubs, with unforgettable moments from the competition's history playing on a movie screen in the Champions Theatre. Interactive fields of play provide a test of skill, and musical entertainment comes from a number of live bands. Visit the UEFA homepage for more information about the Champions Festival in Munich.

Women's Champions League final
The first highlight of the week is the Women's Champions League final at the Olympic Stadium on Thursday at 6pm. Holders Olympique Lyon meet German representatives FFC Frankfurt. Some 30,000 tickets have been sold so far.

All Star showdown at the Olympic Stadium
At midday on Saturday, the same venue hosts the Ultimate Champions Match between an International XI and the Bayern All Stars & Friends. A total of 22 Champions League winners are set to take part. Paul Breitner coaches the FCB side, which includes Giovane Elber, Thomas Helmer, Pierre Littbarski, Roy Makaay, Carsten Jancker, Michael Tarnat, Alexander Zickler and Wiggerl Kögl. The International All Star team, coached by Ruud Gullit and Didier Deschamps, features Edwin van der Sar, Davor Suker, Michael Laudrup, Frank and Ronald de Boer, Clarence Seedorf, Zico and Cafu. Admission is free, and the game will be broadcast live by satellite station Sat1.

Trophy on tour
The magnificent trophy itself arrived in Munich some weeks ago, when UEFA president Michel Platini handed the cup to Mayor of Munich Christian Ude. The trophy has toured the municipality since then, and it was paraded by bus across the city centre on Monday. As of Wednesday, the trophy will be stationed at the Champions Festival.

Public Viewing
The Allianz Arena could have been filled 20 times over for the final, with Bayern alone receiving 1,150,000 applications for tickets. The Public Viewing events on Saturday evening are also oversubscribed, with 65,000 tickets for the Olympic Stadium and 30,000 for the Theresienwiese snapped up in an instant. Possible Public Viewing alternatives are listed on official municipal website muenchen.de.

Notice regarding public transport
The Munich Transportation Authority (MVG) has advised customers of overcrowding issues on underground trains on the day of the final, and suggests using overground trains, trams, buses and bicycles instead.
