Bayern’s Allianz Arena revamp complete

Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena is one of the most innovative stadiums in world football, but Bayern Munich’s hi-tech abode is about to get a whole lot better.

As well as new, energy efficient LED lighting inside the stadium and improved security measures around the ground, the revamped Allianz Arena is currently in the final stages of work to install the largest video wall in Europe.

After 12 years of service, Bayern’s two old screens are set to be usurped by a pair of 200m2 replacements, both boasting the latest Ultra HD technology.

Smaller screens will also be installed on the back of the video wall to make match highlights and replays visible to all 75,000 spectators inside the arena.

It’s not just inside the stadium that visitors will notice improvements, but also outside. To increase security, work has been carried out to install security bollards to the north and south of the stadium.

Work in the media areas is also continuing apace. The surface of the TV compound will be covered with a waterproof coating in the final step to prevent puddles forming around the broadcast vans.

The stadium experience is set to be improved for all and the board appear happy with the progress.

And the fans can now look forward to enjoying the Allianz Arena in all its shining glory once more.
