The name Allianz has come to symbolize excellence in stadiums and sporting facilities. The flagship of the Allianz sporting empire is undoubtedly the Allianz Arena in Munich, the home of five-time Bundesliga defending champions Bayern Munich.

Allianz is rightfully proud of their family of stadiums and gives this statement on their website:

We invest in stadiums because we are committed to supporting local communities by helping develop magnets for global industry and tourism in key regions worldwide. With every stadium in our family, we raise the bar in safety, sustainability and contemporary design.
