Bayern Munich supporters protested Anderlecht's ticket prices by launching bundles of fake money on the pitch during their side's 2-1 Champions League win at the Constant Vanden Stock stadium on Wednesday. Bayern fans were charged €100 for their allocated tickets at the stadium in Brussels, and they expressed their anger by throwing the fake money, which led to play being briefly delayed, and by displaying a banner reading: "Is your gr€€d now finally satisfi€d?" In a statement accompanying the protests, Bayern's independent fan body, Club #12, said that "many Bayern fans, several ultra groups among them, opted to not make the trip to Brussels" despite the German side subsidising tickets to reduce prices for travelling fans to €70. "This can't be a long-term solution," Club #12 said, adding that such "protests are sadly the only option to inform the bosses in their ivory tower at UEFA that salaries for UEFA officials are not representative for the earning capacities of the average football fan." Club #12 said the ticket prices reached "a new dimension for a group-stage match, even in the generally high-priced Champions League."
