There are some other stations nearby. You can always use the excellent web page of the Munich  public transportation system ( http://www.mvv-muenchen.de/ ) for more information.

If you are arriving by plane: there is a very reliable train connection (S-Bahn) every 10 Minutes between the airport and the central station (Hauptbahhnhof), which takes 40 Minutes and costs about 10€.

Here are a few possible choices with moderate prices and good/excellent ratings close to the tournament location:
