Allianz Arena add Apple Pay and other fan enhancements

Via its partnership with Apple, German club Bayern Munich will this month introduce Apple Pay and a new digital ticketing system at its Allianz Arena home.

Fans will be able to use Apple Pay on cell phones as well as other credit and debit card devices from Bayern’s next home match in the Bundesliga on December 19. Fans will also be able to load tickets into their Apple Wallets and have them scanned for admission – making Bayern the first Bundesliga club to offer a digital ticketing solution.

“We are very proud to offer this forward-looking payment option using cell phones in the Allianz Arena in conjunction with our partner Apple,” says Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern’s chairman. “Continuous modernisation and innovation are a hallmark of FC Bayern München. We are continually investing in new technologies to keep the Allianz Arena current with the state of the art.”
