Droves of Bayern Munich fans purposefully missed the first five minutes of last night’s Champions League tie against Arsenal in protest over the exorbitant £64 ticket price at the Emirates.
In comparison, the cheapest season ticket at the Allianz Arena is around £104.
Anyway, having missed roughly £4’s worth of the match, the Bayern fans began to mill into the away section and find their seats, as the home fans applauded their efforts en masse.
The show of support didn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated, with Bayern fan group Club Nr.12 taking the time to thank their Arsenal counterparts on Twitter after the match…
Thank you so much to the Arsenal fans for their applause in the 6th minute yesterday. #ARSFCB

Here’s an original, perhaps overly naive thought – why not just simply stop paying £64 a pop in the first place?
