Dortmund accepts coronaboete after party with fans: ‘That would be weird’

Borussia Dortmund won with 0-4 of Schalke 04 in the Kohlenpott Derby last Saturday and that caused great joy among the supporters after the match. Some of the fans celebrated the party and waited for the player bus, but Dortmund will be fined to 75,000 euros.

This sentence has been accepted by the club. When celebrating the victory, the corona measures were not observed by the players and the fans. On returning to Dortmund, the coach was met by a group of fans, who did not keep a distance from each other. A number of players didnt wear a mouthcap and celebrated the party with the fans.
It resulted in a fine of 75,000 euros in Dortmund. Director Hans-Joachim Watzke understands, but argues that the euphoria was great. โ€œIt would be strange if the players had stayed in the bus as washing images. Especially when they are met by the fans after such a victory,โ€ he says in conversation with Sport1. โ€œBut we have to adhere to the rules, we accept the fine.โ€
