From Eilenburg via Pirna to the Jägerpark
The now final appointment was preceded by a real venue posse. The game was originally supposed to take place in Eilenburg – also on Saturday. Since Wurzen was unable to comply with the strict safety precautions, the Saxon Football Association decided to move the game to VfL Pirna-Copitz’s Willy-Tröger Stadium on Sunday. Now the roll backwards.
“At the request of the SGD and with the consent of the opponent, the game was finally scheduled for Saturday at 4 p.m. in the Jägerpark in Dresden. The ATSV will continue to play as the home team in the SC Borea Dresden stadium,” says a press release the Dresdener.
Information on violent football fans
In the run-up to the game, there was information that violent football fans from the Leipzig area would organize themselves. According to Wurzen, one is neither technically nor capacitively nor financially able to make such decisions and to bear the risks. It was also not possible for the club from the Leipzig district to order the required security personnel in advance. The refusals were justified by pointing out that from the point of view of the security company, the deployment would be too dangerous for its own staff.
