The 2012 UEFA Champions League Final was the first Champions League Final to be held in the Allianz Arena.

The Champions League Final was between English club Chelsea and Bayern Munich of Germany. The match was played at the Allianz Arena on 19 May 2012 and decided the winner of the 2011-12 season of the UEFA Champions League.

It was the first time since 1984 that a finalist has had home stadium advantage – Bayern Munich is one of the two resident football teams at the Allianz Arena.

The World Cup 2006 opening match took place in this intriguing stadium
