By decision of the Saxon state government, Dynamo Dresden has to play the next second division home game against Karlsruhe (December 5th) and the derby in Aue (December 12th) without fans. That offends the bosses bitterly.
Managing Director Jürgen Wehlend (56): “We are of the opinion that a new lockdown could have been avoided by acting earlier and more farsightedly. The decisions bring organizers like Dynamo Dresden into economic and atmospheric difficulties through no fault of their own. We make football for people. It is tiring that neither functioning nor tightened hygiene concepts are allowed to be used in the Rudolf Harbig Stadium. “
Sports director Ralf Becker (51) added: “Of course it is also a competitive disadvantage that, besides Leipzig and Aue, we are the only location in German professional football that has to play in front of empty stands.”
