Bayern fans boycott opening 5 minutes of Arsenal clash in London (PHOTOS)

The fans of FC Bayern Munich (Germany) held a protest during their club’s Champions League encounter against Arsenal F.C. (London, England), the Daily Mail reported.

The first five minutes of Tuesday night’s football match at the Emirates Stadium in London saw a sea of empty seats among the away supporters who were unhappy at the fees they were charged with to watch their side play in the British capital city.

The Bayern supporters’ stance was met by a round of applause from the Arsenal fans. 

Members of the German club’s fan group were disgusted at being asked to pay a minimum of £64 for the Group F clash - in excess of £40 more than they are used to for a German Bundesliga game at their Allianz Arena stadium.

The fans also held a banner that read, “£64 a ticket, but without fans football is not worth a penny!”
