German authorities to investigate Cologne stadium protest


Bundesliga club RB Leipzig has called for fans who arranged a sit-in protest at FC Cologne’s RheinEnergieStadion to be banned, reports ESPN.

RB Leipzig’s away match at FC Cologne was delayed by fans who had arranged a sit in, blocking the stadium entrance. The protest was the latest in a long line of criticisms aimed at the club – some German soccer fans believe Red Bull’s ownership of the team marks an overly commercial approach to the running of a club.

The German soccer association, the DFB, has announced that it will be investigating the Cologne match, including the displaying of banners criticizing RB Leipzig inside the stadium.
