Bayern Munich To Subsidize Fans' $102 Tickets Against Arsenal Feb. 19
Published January 10, 2014
BAYERN APPLAUDED: In London, Shergold & Barlow wrote the gesture is "just the latest example of how German football clubs lead the way in treatment of their fans." Season tickets and matchday prices "are considerably lower in the Bundesliga than the Premier League," with access to top-flight games costing as little as £10 ($14). Arsenal fans group “Black Scarf Movement” spokesperson Nordi Chaoui-Taylor said, ''We commend Bayern's gesture and once again this demonstrates that in Germany, the core support of clubs is truly recognized and taken care of. In this country it seems as if clubs are more focused on greed, looking to take their own fans for as much as they possibly can" (DAILY MAIL, 1/9).
