The BVB thus aims to avoid the recurrence of similar incidents as in Munich and Paris. Both at the Gladbacher National League game against Cologne (2:1) and the Dortmund Champions League game against Paris Saint-Germain (0:2), hundreds of local fans gathered outside the stadiums, although the games were played without spectators due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
Like the BVB, the police also advised the police Stay at the stadium. “Collections of people are to be avoided in the current situation. If some fans go to the stadium, the Dortmunder police will be ready. If there is any conflict or disruption, we will intervene consistently,”said police chief Udo Tonjann.
