Tom Brady in Germany: Three million requests to fill Allianz Arena 45 times for “epic” game



Tom Brady is not only the most famous and recognized NFL player in the United States, he is also the most famous and recognized player in the world, and that includes Germany, as evidenced by the demand for tickets to fill the Allianz Arena for the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday.

The usual home of FC Bayern Munich has a capacity of approximately 67,000 fans, yet the NFL received a total of three million requests for tickets – in short, the seven-time Super Bowl winner’s show could fill the 2006 World Cup opening venue in Germany nearly 45 times over.

Tom Brady’s incredible words

“I have heard there’s three million ticket requests for 67,000 seats,” Brady said. “So the place is gonna be rocking and if it’s anything like what I see in those German Bundesliga games this is gonna be one of the most epic games that we’ve ever played in. I’m super excited.”

Brady’s good spirits are due, in part, to the fact that the team broke a terrible streak of three consecutive defeats after an agonizing 16-13 win over the champion Los Angeles Rams last Sunday, however, the 45-year-old is aware that the Seahawks are a much tougher challenge to overcome, according to the words he said on the Let’s Go! Podcast along with host Jim Gray and legendary former Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

The big challenge of facing the Seahawks

“We’re playing a great team in Seattle,” Brady said. “They’re first place in their division. We’re tied for first place in ours. To fly across the ocean like that, a new time zone, it’s a 9.30am eastern kick-off. It will have its challenges.”

The Seahawks (6-3) lead the NFC West, while the Buccaneers (4-5) are tied with the Atlanta Falcons atop the NFC South.
