30,000 Chelsea fans began pouring into Munich yesterday for tonight’s Champions League final.
Meanwhile, the team arrived at the city’s posh Mandarin Oriental hotel.
The team, including striker Didier Drogba, later trained at the Allianz Arena…the home ground of Bayern Munich, Chelsea’s opponents.
Despite police warnings that 150 English hooligans could be travelling, there were no signs of trouble as Chelsea fans partied with German rivals.
Many are ticketless and could end up watching the match in bars — with touts charging up to $30,000 for a pair of tickets.
