Bayern raise stadium capacity after 12 sell-outs

BERLIN, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Bayern Munich, who played to a full house for all their 12 matches after moving into the new Allianz Arena last year, were given permission on Monday to expand the venue's capacity by 3,901 to 69,901.

Juergen Muth, manager of the Arena GmbH, told Germany's SID news agency that they would quickly be able to expand the capacity in time for Bayern's Jan. 24 German Cup quarter-final against Mainz because no major construction is needed.

He said that the additional capacity for the stadium will be made through selling more standing tickets.

For the World Cup matches, including the tournament's opening match on June 9 when Germany plays Costa Rica, the capacity will be unchanged at 59,416 because the standing room only areas will be turned into seating.
