After Euro 2012 and FIFA World Cup 2014 where Germany won the tournament, a section of Munich Airport Center has once again been converted into an “Airport Arena” for the live screening of European Championship 2016 for authentic stadium experience.
As the world, specifically Europe and naturally so, is going crazy about the European Champions League 2016 from June 10 to July 16, Germany introduced for its people and the travellers a grand way to enjoy the game, without having to be at the stadium. This has come after the huge success of the outdoor viewing events for the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2012. Munich Airport once again created an authentic stadium experience for this year’s European Championship: for the entire tournament wherein a section of the Munich Airport Center (MAC) has again been converted into an “Airport Arena”. All matches are shown live on the 41 square meter (450 square feet) LED screen mounted on the Meta Twist Tower. The 2,000-seat grandstand will give fans an excellent view while cheering on their heroes.
For matches involving the German squad, regularly priced tickets are available online for EUR 5 or for EUR 7 at the airport. Tickets for children 3–6 years of age and persons with mobility restrictions costs EUR 3. For all other Euro 2016 matches, admission to the Airport Arena is free of charge. Tickets for the Germany matches can be reserved online and picked up no later than one hour before kickoff (reservation confirmation required). Fans can also purchase tickets at any time at the airport service center or at the box office starting four hours before the opening whistle. To ensure a safe and enjoyable viewing experience, staff will limit the number of spectators entering the venue.
Munich, with its air of polished prosperity, is quintessential Germany. The old and the new co-exist here with cherished traditions like Oktoberfest, the world’s largest beer festival, rubbing shoulders with designer shopping, sleek cars and high-powered industry. Indeed Munich today is the flavour of the year. The Bavarian capital on the Isar River has strong roots in the past. Its Baroque and Rococo architecture, lush parks, museums and historic venues such as Schloss Nymphenburg, the summer palace of the rulers of Bavaria, are the favoured haunts of tourists and locals alike. This German city is just an hour’s drive from the snow-crusted Alps that frame it beautifully and lend it an air of enchantment.
