Dynamo Dresden’s German Cup ban overturned
The German Football Federation has overturned second-division
side Dynamo Dresden’s ban from the German Cup next season because
of fan violence.
Dresden’s ban was reduced on appeal to a fine of ?100,000
The club must also play its league game at home to Ingolstadt on
March 11 in an empty stadium, and its fans have been banned from
the game at Eintracht Frankfurt five days later.
Dresden supporters clashed with police and rival fans in
November at the second-round cup match at Borussia Dortmund on Oct.
25. The match was briefly halted several times when the fans threw
firecrackers and flares onto the field.
Police arrested 15 people and Dortmund said around ?150,000
($198,500) worth of damage was caused.
