Bayern Munich fans to protest Arsenal ticket prices during Champions League clash

Bayern Munich fans are set to hold a protest during the upcoming Champions League clash with Arsenal by boycotting the first five minutes of the game at The Emirates Stadium, according to the Metro.

The planned walkout is set to go ahead at this Tuesday’s Group F match next week that sees Arsene Wenger desperate for a victory as his side sits bottom with two defeats.

The news comes after BBC’s Price of Football study, which pinpointed the Gunners as the most expensive football team in the country and the very same club that are charging Bayern fans £64, which will rise to €100 with fees.

To contrast; Arsenal’s most expensive season ticket sets fans back a whopping £2,013, whereas Bayern charge a stunning £104 for the season.

“We will not enter the away sector for the first five minutes of the game Arsenal FC against FC Bayern München on the 20th of October 2015,” the group wrote on their Facebook page.

“We will be taking this action to draw attention to the excessive ticket prices for this fixture. The cheapest ticket for this group phase match is priced at £64, which with fees and postage included will cost Bayern fans almost €100.”
