Bayern Offsets Ticket Price for Fans’ Arsenal Trip.

Bayern Munich FC fans will be offered cheaper tickets for the Champions League trip to Arsenal next month.

The defending champions said fans would pay €45 (£37), rather than the €75 (£62) charged by the hosts Gunners for the last-16 first-leg tie.

The move is expected to cost the Allianz Arena outfit about €90,000 (£75,000) they added.

“This is intended to represent a small thank you for the great support of the followers in the past calendar year 2013,” said Bayern.

“Bayern has thrilled the world of European football not only by the outstanding performance and consistency of his team, but also by the fantastic and vocal support of its fans.

“It’s particularly noteworthy that a large number of Bayern fans support the team not only at the high points but also at every away game.

“It should be clear to everyone that this loyalty involves a great deal of time and expense. Bayern have therefore decided to substitute the tickets for the away game at Arsenal.”

Premier League clubs charges more ticket prices than their Bundesliga counterpart.

Tickets for the home leg of their Champions League tie against Arsenal on 19 February range from €35 (£29) to €100 (£82).
