5G upgrade at Allianz Arena

The technical equipment at the Allianz Arena, home of FC Bayern, is getting another upgrade: a 5G mobile connection is now available and complements the previous LTE network.

The German Bundesliga side are pushing ahead with their efforts to offer their fans an extraordinary stadium experience as soon as they can be there again for live matches.

FC Bayern München AG CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said:

With 5G technology, we have the opportunity to make visiting the stadium even more attractive for our fans than before. The Allianz Arena is known for being equipped to the highest technical standards. We are very pleased we can offer this mobile connection technology with our partner Deutsche Telekom.

Of course it is a shame that our fans cannot currently experience this special progress live on site. Nevertheless, we want to continue to develop even during this unique situation, and we’re already well prepared for the resumption of play in front of spectators.

A total of eleven 5G antennas in and around the stadium ensure the best network quality in the Allianz Arena.

This new mobile connection makes it possible to transmit larger amounts of data more quickly – almost in real time. As soon as the stadium reopens, every visitor will now have the capacity to upload multiple pictures or videos.

Allianz Arena München Stadion GmbH Managing Director Jürgen Muth said:

With 5G, thanks to Telekom and FC Bayern Munich, we now have the very latest mobile connection in the Allianz Arena. This marks the beginning of a new era in the field of mobile and network communication. We are also very proud to play a pioneering role in the field of stadium development.
