As reported earlier this week, the Bavarian cabinet relaxed the rules governing outdoor events and Bayern Munich will be allowed to play the final match of the season against FC Augsburg in front of 250 spectators at the Allianz Arena.

Below are the details of how the 250 attendees will be broken down:

FC Bayern has decided to give 100 tickets to persons from the healthcare sector who are working so hard for our society during the pandemic – for example from the caregiving and medical sectors. These pandemic heroes will be selected by the Ministry of Health. 100 more tickets are available to FC Bayern members; these will be allocated in a draw. 10 tickets will go to the FC Bayern Kids Club. Five tickets each will go to head coach Hansi Flick as well as the assistant coaches and players who are leaving the club, so they can share this special moment with their relatives. The remaining tickets will go to persons close to the team.

All members can register for the draw via our enquiry webshop from now until 18.00 CEST on Thursday. The draw will take place on Friday at 09.00 CEST and the winners will be notified immediately by e-mail. Each member’s ticket costs €19, based on the founding year of FC Bayern. The proceeds will be donated to “WeKickCorona”.

“It will be our first home game in front of spectators since 8 March 2020. We’re happy to have the opportunity at short notice to close this season, at least in a modest setting, in a way that gives hope for next season,” said Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer.

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge agreed with Hainer’s sentiments.

“Even if there are only 250 spectators, it is a first, small step back to the normality we all wish for. We’re very happy we can allow some of our fans to watch the season finale in the stadium,” said Rummenigge. “Moreover, our invitation to the heroes of the pandemic is intended as a small gesture of thanks.”

Tickets will be personalized and cannot be transferred to third parties. Per FCBayern.com, the club also will have the follow measures in place for admission:

At the entrance to the stadium, valid ID as well as an official negative Corona rapid test (rapid antigen test not older than 24 hours, PCR test not older than 48 hours) must be presented. Alternatives to the test are: proof of full vaccination, where at least 14 days must have passed since the last required individual vaccination; or in the case of people who have recovered from a COVID infection, proof of a positive PCR test, which may be a minimum of 28 days and a maximum of six months old. FFP2 masks must also be worn in the seating areas.
