If you love football, there's so much to look forward to this summer:
UEFA Euro 2020 app
There’s a UEFA Euro 2020 app available to help football fans navigate the city, since so many football fans will be descending on Munich from far and wide to enjoy the atmosphere of the Euro 2020. It’s not only for ticket-holders, but is very handy for keeping up with the scores and also has personalised city tips, a journey planner and walking routes.
What to wear
A massive part of the fun is getting dressed up for the match, whether it’s the German team’s jersey and scarf or garish black, red and yellow hats, face paint or novelty sunglasses. Organised spectators will have their rain ponchos ready in case the weather takes a turn for the worse, because umbrellas are not allowed in the football arena.
Eating and drinking at the Euro 2020
Food and drink can’t be taken inside the Allianz Arena either, so it's a chance to try the local German food! If you're not a ticket holder, you might be watching the matches in a bar, where you're likely to find some delicious regional speciality dishes from southern Germany and, of course, German beer.
Get your UEFA Euro 2020 tickets
If you're one of the avid fans who's planning on attending, then get your UEFA Euro 2020 tickets on the UEFA website. Otherwise, select your favourite bar or living room with your football fanatic friends, grab a quality German beer and sit back and enjoy the Euro 2020.
