GELSENKIRCHEN (dpa-AFX) – The fans of the Bundesliga soccer club FC Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund caused a stir after the Revier derby despite the Corona restrictions. Around 200 supporters of the bottom of the table from Gelsenkirchen, who had already gathered on the stadium grounds during the game, tried to get into the stadium, which was closed to spectators, after their team’s 0: 4 (0: 2). The police and law enforcement officers prevented them from doing so. According to the Gelsenkirchen police, criminal proceedings were initiated after the operation against a fan, but no one was injured.
The re was also a gathering of larger fan groups in front of the Dortmund training grounds. After the jubilees after the derby, BVB admitted violations of the corona rules. This was “not to be tolerated”, it said in a statement on Sunday. Accordingly, 150 to 200 fans cheered the team on their return to Dortmund, sometimes neither wearing masks nor keeping the necessary distance. In addition, the players celebrated on the bus and filmed it “in exuberance,” as the club announced.
The more than ten-minute video was deleted on Sunday night.
The German Football League requested a short-term statement from BVB.
The investigation is therefore ongoing, the existing video material will be viewed./bue/DP/men
