"What happened to German efficiency?"

has rated Bay Arena 3.5 out of 5.

bensalvi23's review of Bay Arena

Asceticly beautiful stadium. Has safe standing for away fans which is great but very poorly run stadium.


Travel to Cologne, stay there (it's actually a great place loads to do and gold bars) then get train to the ground. Takes around 20 minutes then a 5 minute walk to the ground. Loads of police so you can't get lost.


I really wanted to give a good rating because of safe standing which is great but the away end you are caged in. So you have part of the action restricted view if you are not right and the top or too the far side.


Not as impressive as what it looks. Very basic. Scan machines are awful, it was raining and half people's tickets didn't work so you have to get replacements.

Food & Drink

The food looked great but in order to buy food or drink you need to get a special Bayer card. They don't accept cash or debit card. No Bayern card no service.

Police & Stewards

Police are fine had no problem but stewards are awful. Many peoples tickets didn't work and they where not helpful at all. Miserable and unhelpful.


Unbelievable away support, home fans were average. Didn't sell out for a Champions League game and didn't make much noise. Expected better.
