Bayern Munich supporters were unhappy with more than just the result today in North London.

Before the German champions lost to Arsenal 2-0, their supporters protested the high ticket prices at the Emirates, which are some of the most expensive in all of Europe.

For the opening five minutes of the match, many of Bayern’s supporters did not go down to their seats, but rather placed massive signs that read “£64 a ticket. But without fans, football is not worth a penny.” £64 is equal to about $100, which was the cost of a ticket for the visiting supporter’s section.

After five minutes, the Bayern fans returned to their seats to much applause from the Arsenal support.

In a recent study by the BBC titled The Price of Football, Arsenal was found to have the most expensive season ticket in England, with their cheapest seat coming in at nearly $1600. In comparison, the cheapest season ticket for Bayern Munich goes for around $160.
