November 23 – Germany’s Bundesliga is proud of its reputation for fair play when it comes to ticket prices so it was no surprise when Bayern Munich fans who travelled to Belgium for Wednesday’s Champions League game against Anderlecht vented their fury after being charged €100.
The game was briefly suspended when fans threw bundles of fake money on the pitch in protest and unveiled a banner that read: ‘Is your gr€€d now satisfied?’
Bayern supporters have regularly protested about the cost of away tickets including hurling rolls of paper on to the pitch during a match at Arsenal last March.
A banner at their league match against Augsburg at the weekend ahead of the Anderlecht fixture showed a Bayern fan being squeezed dry by Anderlecht board member Michael Verschueren and UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.
Many German fans refused to take up their allocation on Wednesday but those that did made their feelings known even though their club apparently footed 10% of the ticket price as a gesture.
