Allianz Arena lights

Allianz Arena is Europe’s biggest stadium with surrounding outdoor LED lighting for dynamic mood lighting. 

Earlier, the stadium could only project three colors – red, blue, and white. 

However, by the end of 2014, Allianz Arena installed new LED lighting on the facade, producing 16 million different colors.

The Allianz Arena gets illuminated for approximately three hours from sunset on non-matchdays. 

The Munich stadium also lights up on certain evenings to celebrate special events.

More than 300,000 LED lights — over a surface area of 26,000 square meters — light up the stadium facade’s inflatable outer membrane.

The authorities have also introduced lighting to enhance the action on the pitch inside the Allianz Arena. 

For example, a Mexican wave can be created to celebrate a goal during the match. 

Check out how FC Bayern Munich celebrated Christmas with a lighting show inside the stadium.

History of Allianz Arena

FC Bayern Munich and their opponents TSV 1860 Munich used the city’s Olympic Stadium as their home ground. 

In the mid-1990s, the clubs decided that the Olympiastadion built for the 1972 Summer Olympics would no longer be enough.

They had two options – reconstruct the Olympiastadion or build a new stadium. 

The stadium’s foundation stone was laid on 21 Oct 2002, and construction got completed on 30 Apr 2005.

It was in time for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

Swiss architect firm Herzog & de Meuron built the soccer stadium at the cost of €340 million. 

The first official match held was a game between TSV 1860 Munchen and against FC Nuremberg.

Allianz, the financial services provider, secured the new stadium’s naming rights and signed a 30-year sponsorship deal. 

And that is the reason why this football stadium in Munich is referred to as Allianz Arena.
