PICS: Bayern Munich fans stage protest over Arsenal's ticket prices

By Stephen Barry

A large section of Bayern Munich fans at the Emirates Stadium held a protest at the prices they had to pay for the Champions League group stage tie.

The fans skipped the first five minutes of the game, waiting outside as a banner among the empty seats expressed their outrage at the £64 cost for an away ticket.

Arsenal fans, who pay between £1,014.00 and £2,013.00 for a season ticket, seemed suitably impressed at the stand being taken.

Although some were concerned that the protest wasn’t value for money…

Hopefully Bayern give Arsenal fans a good deal when they travel to the Allianz Arena in a fortnight’s time.
