Ahead of the UEFA Champions League game next week, Bayern Munich fans are threatening to boycott the first five minutes of the fixture against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

A supporters' group called FC Bayern Worldwide are protesting  what the call 'impossible' ticket costs.

The group is furious that they are going to pay £64 for the cheapest ticket of the game while a Bayern Munich season ticket costs just £104.

"We will not enter the away sector for the first five minutes of the game Arsenal FC against FC Bayern München on the 20th of October 2015," the group said in a statement posted on their Facebook page.

"This kind of a price structure makes a stadium visit impossible for younger and socially disadvantaged fans. It destroys fan culture, which is the basis of football. In England, this development has already taken place,"
