Ticket - FAQ

Here we answer all the important questions about ticketing.

It is prohibited to purchase tickets for commercial resale. In such cases, the tickets in question may be blocked, admission may be denied without any compensation and appropriate contractual penalties may be imposed.

A private transfer of a ticket for non-commercial purposes (in individual cases of illness or other hindrance) is permitted if it doesn’t fall under unauthorised transfer (please see section 4.1 of the ticketing GTCs). The new ticket holder must be expressly informed of the validity and content of our ticketing GTCs by the previous holder and must declare their agreement with their validity between the latter and the organisers.

In the case of transferring discounted tickets, the new holder must also fulfil the requirements for the discount.

European Championships Munich 2022 tickets can only be purchased from the organisers or the official ticketing partner, Ticketmaster. Secondary market platforms such as viagogo, Global Tickets, StubHub, etc. are non-authorised third-party sellers, and therefore, they cannot offer valid tickets. Tickets bought or sold on such platforms may be blocked. Admission may be denied without any compensation and appropriate penalties may be imposed.

In the ticket shop, you can book tickets for athletics, beach volleyball, canoe sprint, gymnastics, rowing, sport climbing, table tennis, and track cycling.

 

The entry to other competitions and the cultural festival The Roofs is free. You can find an overview of all events and schedules here

The available tickets will be issued to visitors who have been vaccinated or have recovered (2G rule). The prerequisite for entering the venues is that the visitors present a COVID-19 vaccination certificate or a convalescent certificate, each in accordance with § 2 SchAusnahmV (COVID-19 Protective Measures Exemption Ordinance) and in conjunction with an official photo ID. Exceptions apply to children and young people up to and including the age of 12 and to visitors who cannot get vaccinated. 

The regulations in the Coronavirus Protection Ordinance can be relaxed or tightened by the State of Bavaria at any time. Irrespective of the ordinance, the Munich Public Health Department can also order further protective measures. The prevailing protection and hygiene regulations apply.

In this case, the legal regulations on protecting minors shall apply.

Sports competitions and cultural events:

  • Children from the age of 8 are allowed to attend until 9 p.m. – if accompanied by a parent or guardian, they can also be admitted after 9 p.m.
  • Children under the age of 8 are allowed to attend if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • Children from the age of 14 years who are not accompanied by a parent, or legal guardian must be able to prove their identity with an official identification document.

  • Other regulations may be imposed by the district administration.

The European Championships Munich 2022 competitions are, to large extent, open-air events, therefore the start and event execution depend on weather conditions. Without exception, the competition management of the organising sports federation in question decides on the starting time, interruptions, postponements, or even cancellations. The safety of the athletes and spectators is the major criteria for such decisions. The organisers do not influence this in any way.

In the case of unforeseen events or events outside their area of responsibility that make it impossible to hold the event, the organisers may cancel, postpone, or suspend the session in question.

Before arriving at the event venue, please make sure to check the weather report and visit www.munich2022.com as well as our social media channels for the event starting times, postponement or cancellation announcements, and protection and hygiene regulations in place.

In the event of a session postponement (applies to entire sessions only, and not to individual events within a session), the tickets remain valid.

In the event of a session being cancelled, the ticket price paid can be refunded on presentation of the respective ticket. In the event of cancellation of the entire event or individual sessions of an event day, only the ticket price paid will be refunded. Any accompanying costs such as hotel accommodation, travel costs or similar will not be refunded.

Prams are not permitted in ticketed areas, any grandstand, or indoors.

At the open spaces and cultural event areas, prams may be used if they do not pose a potential danger or obstacle to other visitors.

Drinks for personal use may be carried in Tetra Paks or plastic bottles with a maximum volume of 1 L per person.

In principle, when leaving the event area tickets lose their validity. However, a "re-entry" is possible if upon leaving the tickets are scanned by the organisers' service staff.

Upon re-entry, the respective admission regulations will continue to apply. Thus, security checks will be carried out once again.

Recordings for private purposes are allowed.

It is prohibited to record and/or transmit audio, photos, videos, descriptions, or event results for commercial or public purposes. The distribution and/or reproduction of sound, photographs, film, or video recordings of the event or parts of the event via internet, radio, television, data carriers, or other means is under no circumstances permitted.

Commute to the venue is included in all purchased tickets. With commisioned tickets, the printed MVV logo entitles the holder to use all means of public transport within the entire MVV area (zones M-6).

Electronic tickets that are saved in the smartphone wallet or printed out do not count as public transport tickets on their own! When ordering electronic tickets, you will receive a link which can be used to create a free MVV pass using the order number and the surname of the person ordering. Please follow the instructions in the email and on the electronic ticket itself.

For free tickets, press tickets, work tickets, etc. other regulations may apply.

Here our ticketing GTCs, the respective house and usage regulations, Olympiapark regulations, and the outdoor facilities regulations apply.

  • Prams are not permitted in the venue areas that may only be entered with tickets, nor in any stands or premises. In open areas and those of cultural events, pushchairs may be used with the restriction that they do not present a potential hazard to other visitors;
  • Flagpoles or banners that are not made of wood or that are longer than 1 m and/or not larger than 3 cm diameter. The permitted flags and banners that are brought to the event shall be made of flame-retardant materials; 
  • Large banners (over 1.0 m²), large quantities of paper, wallpaper rolls, or confetti, etc. 
  • Posters, emblems, and other objects (including clothing items) which serve the purpose of unlawful expression of opinion (e.g., racist, xenophobic, radical right-wing or left-wing, anti-Semitic, National Socialist or political propaganda materials);
  • Drugs that fall under the German Narcotic Drugs Act (BtMG);
  • Animals of any kind (with the exception of guide and assistance dogs prior to the agreement with the operators/event organisers);
  • Noise-making instruments that may disturb other visitors or disrupt the event, e.g., megaphones, air horns;
  • Glass containers and bottles, cans, or other objects made of glass or other fragile, splintering, or particularly hard materials and which, due to their nature, may cause injury;
  • Any beverage containers with a volume of over 1 L per person;
  • Food in the amount that is clearly not for immediate personal consumption.

For security purposes webcams and video cameras are installed at some of the venues. The events will also be broadcasted and recorded on television. Following item 7.4 of the ticketing GTCs, visitors when purchasing their tickets to the venues irrevocably give their consent to the organisers, and therefore the organisers have the right to make images and sound recordings of the visitors or have them made by third parties in order to use, reproduce, broadcast or use them in any audio-visual media or have this done by third parties without any payment or remuneration.

You can buy tickets for the individual sessions as well as day passes or combined tickets. Between the two sessions, Olympiastadion shall be completely cleared. During this time owners of day passes, or combined tickets must also leave the stadium. They can re-enter with the same tickets at the start of the second session.

For the sake of the environment, we kindly ask you to avoid printing your ticket if possible and use the digital version instead.
