Bundesliga: Bayern fan buses stopped after pyro action: criticism of use

After the game between Werder Bremen and FC Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, fans of the German record champions were stopped by the police on their way back south in a parking lot on Autobahn 27. Overall, the officials recorded the personal details of 380 people during the night from Saturday to Sunday, the police said. Five buses were checked.

The umbrella organization of active Bayern Munich fans and the Green and White Aid, which supports Werder fans with problems with the police and the judiciary, criticized the deployment. "It was an absolutely disproportionate action," said Alexander Salzweger, spokesman for Club No. 12, the association of active Bayern fans, about Spox and Goal. "Unfortunately, fans of active fan scenes know such missions, but that was absolutely excessive even by their standards." The last buses left at around 3 a.m.

During the game (1:2) pyrotechnics were ignited again and again in the guest block of the Weser Stadium. The grandstand below was cleared for a short time to prevent injuries from falling parts of the pyrotechnics.

After the fans there were allowed to go back to their seats, pyrotechnics were ignited again in the guest block above. A renewed evacuation of the lower tier "was very difficult for the police and security service, since most of the affected spectators no longer wanted to leave their seats," the press release said. The police prepared criminal charges for violations of the Explosives Act.
