Fans Clamoring To See German Club's Champions League Semifinal
Published April 12, 2013
Bayern Munich has received more than 200,000 ticket requests for its Champions League semifinal game in Munich, "thousands of which were made before they advanced against Juventus," according to Karolos Grohmann of REUTERS. A team official said, "We have been updating the figure constantly and at the moment it stands at 200,000 ticket requests for the semi-final home leg." Bayern's stadium fits "only 69,000 and that includes the 39,500 ticket holders and any fans travelling with their opponents." Bayern has advanced to its second consecutive Champions League semifinal "with the draw on Friday including fellow Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund as well as Spanish pair Real Madrid and Barcelona" (REUTERS, 4/11).
