Football World Cup public viewing in the Olympic Park

10.06.2016 - Olympiapark München GmbH

Tickets on sale in advance and on the Sunday from 6 p.m. at the Olympic Hall East and Olympic Stadium North/South cash desks. The Football European Championships get underway in France today. And at the Olympic Park on Sunday! Public viewings are back - and this time with a touch of a summer's fairytale. That's because, just like for the 2006 World Championship, at least the first two group matches of the German national team will be broadcast today on a 52 square metre video wall, which will float on pontoons in the Olympic lake. The grass terraces in front of it can accommodate around 12,000 fans. After the matches on 12 June against Ukraine and on 16 June against Poland (kick-off for both matches is at 9 p.m., doors open at 7 p.m.), the public viewing will be open for everyone to cheer their teams along and to cross their fingers in the Olympic Stadium. Then, on 21 June, it is the third preliminary match between Northern Ireland and Germany (kick-off 6 p.m.). There are also plans to broadcast the second round, the quarter and the semi-final as well as the final - although only if Germany gets through.   Together with Aktion Mensch, the Olympic Park now offers even more freedom from barriers at the 2016 public viewings. During the live broadcasts on the Olympic lake and in the Olympic Stadium, fans with and without disabilities will be able to truly enjoy the excitement together. Under the motto “Public viewing for all!”, reporters for the blind, sign language interpreters and Aktion Mensch service teams will be present on site to provide assistance. Aktion Mensch is also sponsoring more disabled-friendly WCs. These special amenities are available for all three of the national eleven’s preliminary matches as well as a final with the German team.   The gates open two hours before the matches start both at the Olympic lake and for the matches being shown in the stadium. From then on, 12,000 fans can celebrate on the grass terraces and later 37,000 fans can cheer on their team on the covered grandstand and in the arena. The video wall in the Olympic Stadium will be 250 square metres in size. The best view of the match is therefore guaranteed, and of course the perfect atmosphere, which will be taken care of once again by Radio Gong 96.3, just like at the last World Championships. Around 30 minutes before the match begins, we'll be switching over to the TV station's pre-match show.   Admission to the public viewing area costs Euro 6 (children aged 6-14, children under the age of 6 go free) or Euro 8 (adults). Tickets are available from München Ticket GmbH, Tel. +49 (0)89 54 81 81 81, and at the usual advance sales outlets and box offices in the Olympic Park. Security notice: Everyone will be checked. Please note the general regulations at (FAQs) and, if possible, avoid bringing rucksacks and bags with you. Arrive in plenty of time since the checks can cause delays at the entrance.
