A pretty hefty bill came due for German second division club 1. FC Magdeburg. The club has to pay a penalty of 96,000 euros because fans burned pyrotechnics during a game and the smoke polluted the stadium of their opponents SC Reuben Münster.
Throughout the 2nd half and after the last whistle of the DFB Cup game against Eintracht Frankfurt (0: 4), Magdeburg viewers ignited a total of 160 pyrotechnic objects such as Bengal Fire and Reached.
This is now expensive for the second department clubs: In this case, the DFB estimates a general costs by the sports court of 96,000 euros per burned-out item.
The FCM can spend 32,000 euros for security or consolidated procedures.
The club has to show that at the DFB.
