Santa Claus

Keep an eye on the skies as Santa Claus and his reindeer and sleigh could be spotted over the Allianz Stadium sky-line. If children and parents are well behaved and on the nice list, Santa could make an appearance before the match in the stadium.

If he does arrive, we will aim to feed him as many cookies and milk as possible, so that he can stay around to spread some more festive cheer at half time before flying back to the North Pole to finish off his last minute plans for his big day on the 25th of December.
