Bayern Munich have released an official statement to the effect that representatives of the club met with the newly installed CEO of 1860 Markus Fauser to discuss terminating 1860’s rental contract with Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
The existing rental agreement, valid until 2025, allows 1860 Munich to play its home games at the Allianz despite having no share in the ownership of the stadium. Although 1860 originally owned 50% of the Allianz, Bayern Munich bought out its shares for €11 million in 2006 and is sole proprietor.
The meeting today took place at 1860’s request. While the representatives did not reach a definitive agreement today, they are expected to reconvene next week and may end the existing agreement as soon as June 30th. It is widely anticipated that 1860 will return to the Grünwalder Stadium where the club played until 1995.
