German Bundesliga football club Bayern Munich has unveiled Austrian company Zumtobel Group as its official lighting partner.
The deal will run for an initial three years, until the end of the 2020-21 season.
Bayern said the partnership will allow the club’s Allianz Arena to “shine in an even more resplendent shade of red” in the future.
The implementation of the lighting solution commenced at the start of the 2018-19 season and covers the inside and outside of the 75,000-seat stadium.
Zumtobel Group will create a new lighting design for the stadium’s roof area, which Bayern said will visually merge the spectator stands with the roof. The lighting in the cascade staircase and the exterior lighting of the esplanade will be renewed in further stages.
Zumtobel Group also serves as the official lighting supplier for English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur and is responsible for designing and developing lighting solutions across the team’s new 61,000-seat stadium.
Germany was last month awarded hosting rights for the UEFA Euro 2024 national team tournament and the Allianz Arena is one of 10 stadia selected by the German Football Association (DFB) to stage matches. The stadium was also a host venue during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.
