After the Hamburger SV cup game at Rot-Weiss Essen, there were serious allegations from guest fans. They say there were “disproportionate and overreaching controls.” The Revierklub defends itself against it. Now the HSV is also expressing itself.
Supporters of the second division Hamburger SV have raised allegations against the behavior of the security staff before the cup game at Rot-Weiss Essen. There were “disproportionate and excessive controls”, wrote the North Tribune fan aid on its website. Followers had reported grips in the intimate area, it said.
The district club rejected the allegations. “The admission controls were all carried out within the framework of the legal framework and the qualification concept for the security and stewardship of the DFB,” said RWE. Internet portals of the Funke media group had previously reported on Essen’s statement.
When asked, Hamburger SV said that they were in contact with those affected and were in the process of further processing the issue. “Those affected contacted our fan advisors directly on site or contacted the Supporters Club. Fan support was also contacted. Many also contacted us via email afterwards,” said a spokesman for the club.
Found 14 pyro items
According to RWE, the staff initially found nine pyrotechnic objects. As a result, the controls were intensified, which, among other things, found a total of 14 Pyro objects. “Some fans disrupted the admission phase and hindered the security service during the further search. The controlled area was therefore temporarily cleared by strong police forces,” the third division club said.
Fanhilfe North Tribune expressed solidarity with “all those affected”. Placing visitors “of the guest block under general suspicion and violating their privacy in this way is absolutely not proportionate and also not legal. Even the discovery of individual prohibited objects does not justify this crossing of borders.” With the 4:3 in extra time, HSV had advanced to the second round of the DFB Cup.
