This weekend I visited Bayern Munich's football stadium, the Allianz Arena. I was with nine friends as part of a stag party. Originally we had travelled to Germany to see a match but Bayern were playing away and 1860 Munich (the other tenants) had their game rearranged from Sunday to Monday.
Still, there were quite a few interesting facts on the tour. Firstly, every Bayern player gets a new Audi at the beginning of each season, they spend half-a-million euros each season for the grass on the pitch and coach Pep Guardiola gets Bayern TV to send first half analysis to their changing room for half-time.
I was surprised the tour didn't include a trophy room, you could't get a picture in the dug-out and that the whole stadium felt very clinical, like a hospital (or Lewandowski in front of goal these days!).
Plus there was only one rule for the tour, you couldn't take a picture of Allianz Arena staff. A weird rule I thought but it's funny because you often don't want to do something until you can't. So when our tour guide said that I started to really want a picture of him. But I didn't. Instead here is one of me!
