Map of stadium zones

Due to the excellent public transport connections, we kindly ask you to use the bus and rail services on match days. A free shuttle bus service is also available (Wupsi).

The stadium operates with its own pre-paid card (ByArena-Card), which is used for all purchases (food and drinks and other products). Cash is not accepted inside the stadium, so you will need to get one of these cards.

Visiting supporters can get a BayArena-Card inside the stadium by making a non-credit deposit of €10. You can charge the card with anything from 5 to 200 euros at different points inside the stadium.
After the game, you have two options: either return the BayArena-Card to get back your €10 and any unused credit, or keep the card as a souvenir.

Control and security

The gates open two hours before kick-off and fans are advised to get there as early as possible to get through security in good time.

Because of the strict security controls, spectators are asked not to bring backpacks, cases or large bags.

The Barça fans will be located in sectors GS1, GS2 and GS3, and must use the seats stipulated on their tickets.

Fireworks, knives, weapons and other dangerous objects, hooters, megaphones and electronic or mechanical sound devices are not allowed inside the stadium.

Flagpoles longer than 1.5 meters or flags with a diameter of more than 3 meters are not allowed inside the stadium. Sprays, glass bottles and similar objects or others made of especially hard materials are also prohibited.

No item may be brought into the stadium that includes racist, xenophobic or discriminatory messages or symbols, or any kind of radical propaganda or incitation of violence.
