BVB Supporters Banned from Hoffenheim Away Games

Borussia Dortmund is forced to play the next 2 seasons games in Hoffenheim without their fans’ support. Moreover, the German giants will have to pay 50,000 Euros fine for the fans’ “misconduct”. On Friday, the DFB Sports Court revoked the suspended sentence it has imposed on Borussia Dortmund. This was the result of insults against Dietmar Hopp, owner of the Hoffenheim Bundesliga team, by the BVB fans using posters and chants in their latest visit to the Rhein-Neckar-Arena. The sentence, which was accepted by The Black and Yellow, means that the team will travel without the supporters for the 20-21 and 21-22 seasons. This will more likely be extended to 3 years ban by the DFB Sports Court. In addition, Borussia Dortmund must pay a 50,000 Euros fine that will be partially used to enforce security by the DFB. BVB supporters showed on several occasions their stance against Dietmar Hopp who owns more than 90% of TSG Hoffenheim shares, which is against Bundesliga culture in which teams should keep at least a 51% share for the public.
