Live Football Match Experience in Germany

Bayern Munich (1) vs Manchester City (0)

My first experience of watching a LIVE football match was on 17 September 2014 at the Allianz Arena, a football stadium in Bavaria, Munich, Germany, which houses 75,000 people and 2200 business seats.

Though I like Manchester United and toured several football stadiums in Europe, I never had the interest or intent in spending money to watch a Live football match. Despite my family and friends wanting to buy tickets and taking me to watch a LIVE match, I never went. But, to watch the Bayern Munich vs Manchester City match live at the stadium, my brother purchased the ticket and forced me to come for the match.

It was an experience I would always remember and cherish in my life. I took my camera and lenses to take photos as we were sat on the top tier of the stadium and was told the view would be breathtaking. It was truly a beautiful view and a treat to take photos.

Tip: if you are going to sit on the top tier, I suggest you choose the corner seat and take a tripod to use the long lenses else you will have to ensure not shaking your hands while clicking.
