The Owners of Allianz Arena
According to their website, on 27 April 2006, FC Bayern Munich temporarily acquired 100% of the shares in the Allianz Arena after purchasing TSV 1860 Munich’s 50% share in the holding company, Allianz Arena Munich Stadion GmbH, which the clubs had founded together.
However, TSV 1860’s right to repurchase their 50% share in Allianz Arena Munich Stadion GmbH until 30 June 2010 was officially rescinded on Friday, 25 April 2008. All three parties agreed to relieve TSV 1860 of its obligations, which were then transferred to FC Bayern Munich AG, currently the Allianz Arena’s only stockholder.
As a result of 1860 München’s relegation at the end of the season 2016/2017 the lease contract between TSV München von 1860 GmbH & Co. KGaA and Allianz Arena München Stadion GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FC Bayern München AG, was cancelled. It means the Allianz Arena is no longer TSV 1860 München’s home ground. The agreemen precludes 1860 returning to the stadium at a later date.
