Built in a record time of 30 months, the Allianz Arena is one of the most modern and architecturally unique football stadiums in Europe. It has not only captivated football fans, but many others with its breathtaking architecture and spectacular illuminated facade. Swiss architects Herzog and De Meuron designed the building purely as football stadium. The façade and roof is a composition of transparent and translucent ETFE laminate panels on a steel supporting structure. Every panel has a transparent inner. Those forming the facade have a translucent white outer, but the roof panels are completely transparent, allowing sunshine and light to fall onto the pitch. The stadium is lighted in the colours of the two Munich clubs (FC Bayern München red colour and TSV 1860 blue) who have their home-base in this arena; white for national games. Capacity of the Arena is 69.000, unique 3-tier Arena in Germany with a great closeness to the pitch through a high inclination of the tiers.
