Munich's Olympic Stadium will host the first official public viewing of a UEFA Champions League final when Bayern Munich take on Chelsea at the Allianz Arena on 19 May, UEFA announced on Friday.

Bayern have received more than a million requests from fans for tickets at their Allianz Arena stadium with just 17,000 allocated to the club of the stadium's 66,000 capacity and any unlucky fans now have an alternative.

As part of UEFA's four-day Champions Festival at Munich's Olympic Park, tickets priced five euros each are available at the 65,000-seater Olympic Stadium, Bayern's home ground before they moved to the Allianz Arena in 2005.

This is the first time there will be an official public viewing for a Champions League final and tickets can be bought online.
