Before the DFB Cup final, SC Freiburg prohibits the use of its logo for common fan articles with opponent RB Leipzig. This was confirmed by a spokesman for the German Press Agency.
The Bundesliga club did not give a reason. In addition, the opponent was forbidden to use the club’s coat of arms. The final will take place on May 21 in the Berlin Olympic Stadium. Participation has so far been the greatest success in the cup competition.
On the Instagram page of the Freiburg online magazine “Nordtribüne.org” for fans it says: “No common thing with the construct”. Already in March 2016, the Ultra group Corrillo had expressed its displeasure with the Saxon Club at the meeting with Leipzig in the 2nd Bundesliga.
RB Leipzig has been criticized by opposing fans since its foundation. The Saxons are accused, among other things, that the club is only so successful thanks to the investments of the beverage billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz and ultimately only serves as a marketing tool.
