Football fans in a match between Frankfurt and Salzburg on Thursday chanted”Nazis out” after a moment of silence for the victims of this Hanau shooting was disrupted by heckles.
Frankfurt is situated only 30km in Hanau, in which nine people died on Wednesday after a gunman opened fire on two shisha bars in the town center.
According to officials, the attacks seem to have been inspired by far-right beliefs.
Following the chants, Eintracht Frankfurt proceeded to win the match 4-1, shooting a 3-goal edge into the next round, intended for February 27.
The Hanau catastrophe has awakened the German soccer world.
The German football federation said Friday that almost all of the branch’s groups, the referees and kids accompanying the players on the area would wear shirts with the motto”red card for racism.”
“We stand together against anybody who attacks our worth,” federation president Fritz Keller stated.
Underneath the chant of’Nazis outside,’ the racist enthusiast was identified and taken out of the stadium.
