96 manager Horst Heldt has out of concern for fan riots criticized the game plan for Hanover's Bundesliga match on 22 September at 1. FC Nuremberg. 90 minutes before the game of the Lower Saxony in the newly promoted in Franconia, the third league match of Eintracht Braunschweig at the Würzburger Kickers is kicked off in about 100 kilometers away. "This heading is incomprehensible, that is more than unfortunate," said Heldt of the "Bild" newspaper.
The fans of Hannover 96 and Eintracht Braunschweig are enemies. In direct duels there had been various incidents in the past. "It seems so, but I say that deliberately with a question mark, as if the DFL and the DFB had not denied," said Held the portal "Sport Buzzer".
There could be problems especially at the train stations, fears Heldt. "Of course, fans can always meet somewhere, and it's not said that anything happens, but to take an additional risk with such a game setting – I do not understand."
