Technical note on advance booking:
Despite technical improvements in recent months, there was a temporary system failure in the online shop when season tickets for the Champions League went on sale. In addition to technical problems with the ticket service provider, the system failure was also caused by the access of many Union fans using several browsers and end devices simultaneously.
From now on, a technically improved waiting page should guarantee a smooth advance sale even with high access rates. It will be possible to be informed by e-mail as soon as access to the ticket shop is possible. 1. FC Union Berlin nevertheless asks all those entitled to buy to join the queue using only one device.
