Bayern Munich may have gone without any silverware in the past two seasons but can be proud of their huge support base after selling out all 17 home games for the coming Bundesliga season, a month and a half before the start.
Season tickets sales were stopped at 39,500 for their 69,000-Allianz Arena in what looks set to be another profit-making season, the 20th in a row, for Bayern, who lost to Chelsea in the Champions League final in May.
“I want to thank the fans for this magnificent interest,” said Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Wednesday. “This shows how attractive and well supported Bayern are.”
So, this is quite astonishing, even for a club of as status of Bayern Munich. Remember that, the Allianz Arena is one of the biggest football stadiums around.
Got to give it to the Bayern Munich supporters, the club has not won anything for 2 years but still the buzz around it is more than ever.
