During Funkel’s comeback – Nuremberg fans storm into the interior of the stadium

As of: 2:42 p.m. | Reading time: 2 minutes

Some of the Nuremberg fans protest inside

What: Sky

There will also be fan protests against an investor in the DFL on Sunday. During the game between Nuremberg and 1. FC Kaiserslautern there was a threat of a break-down at times: Franconian fans ran into the interior of the stadium. The police have to arrive.

The setting was actually a nice one for the return of the old man among the coaches: the game plan had a traditional duel at 1. FC Nürnberg ready for Friedhelm Funkel as the new savior of 1. FC Kaiserslautern. But then the 70-year-old’s comeback quickly faded into the background on Sunday afternoon.

At the game in Franconia, fans’ protests against the planned entry of an investor into the German Football League (DFL) continued. Initially, kick-off was delayed due to some tennis balls being thrown onto the field. Then Nuremberg fans stretched a large banner over the stands. And finally, some of the host’s supporters even showed up inside to protest – which is why club captain Jan Gyamerah had to persuade the visitors to take their usual seats again. Several dozen police officers also took position to secure the situation.

DFL is hoping for a billion euros

After the seven-minute delay before kick-off, there was an additional fifteen-minute wait before the players could get back to their jobs. As in other German stadiums, there was a threat of demolition in Nuremberg. Referee Michael Bacher spoke to the police on the sidelines before restarting the game.

The DFL wants to collect one billion euros from a financial investor for a percentage share of the TV revenue. When the 36 professional clubs voted on the deal, the necessary two-thirds majority was only barely achieved. Many fans have been protesting in the stadiums for weeks, mainly by throwing objects against entry, and games are repeatedly interrupted.
