Regional league soccer club 1. FC Lok Leipzig will pay dearly for the misconduct of its fans in the first round DFB Cup match against Eintracht Frankfurt (0:7). On Tuesday, the DFB sports court sentenced the Saxons to a fine of 25,000 euros. The court punished the burning and throwing of pyrotechnics before and during the match, which ultimately led to an almost 15-minute stoppage in play in the second half. The club can use 8300 euros for safety or violence prevention measures, which must be proven to the DFB by the end of the season. Lok has already agreed to the ruling.
