Uli Hoeneß Cup: Kick-off brought forward
Bayern face Barcelona in a prestige friendly on Wednesday 24 July, with the Uli Hoeneß Cup on offer to the winners. The match is now confirmed as a 6.30 pm CET kick-off. The exact time was dependent on the outcome of the Germany Women's National Team’s quarter-final at the UEFA Women's EURO in Sweden. The Germans defeated Italy 1-0 and will now contest the semi-final on Wednesday evening. As this match takes contractual priority for national broadcaster ZDF, the Bayern-Barcelona meeting has been brought forward two hours.
The game is a 71,000 sell-out, but ticket holders who now cannot attend due to the switch may apply to the club for a refund in the exceptional circumstances. Residents of Munich and the surrounding area must return their tickets to the ticket office by 5 pm on Tuesday. Fans travelling from outside the immediate area may return tickets they can no longer use by post, but to be eligible for a refund, the tickets must arrive at the ticket office prior to the match. Any tickets thus released will go on general sale at the Allianz Arena from midday on the day of the match.
