The German Soccer Federation fined Cologne $14,000 for its fan’s “unsporting behavior” during a Bundesliga match. Cologne, which lost the match 5-1, agreed to pay the fine.
According to the GSF, Cologne fans tossed “several beakers filled with urine and excrement” at rival fans in the stands.
Cologne president Wolfgang Overath said at the time the perpetrators were “not football fans,” and “these people have no interest in sport.”
Overath further added that it’s up to the federation and his team to “reflect on how things have come to such excesses.”
