Germany's Violent Football Fans Standings, Eintrach Frankfurt Top With 630

Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt, currently third in the standings, "is a joy to watch on the field, but off the field the club's fans have been known to cause trouble, which earned Frankfurt the top spot in the violence standing of German professional football," according to Frank Schneider of BILD. A leaked list from the police central information office for sports assignments ranks the teams of the Bundesliga, 2nd Bundesliga and 3rd League "by the amount of violent fans." For the '11-12 season, the list "noted a total of 10,603 violent fans," and out of those 7,830 are so-called category B fans (prepared to use violence) and 2,783 are category C fans (violence seeking). No other club had more violent fans during the '11-12 season than Eintracht Frankfurt "with a total of 630." Frankfurt's problem fans often refer to themselves as "riot champions." Eintracht Frankfurt Exec Chair Heribert Bruchhagen said, "Eintracht Frankfurt is because of its fans the most-unlikeable club in Germany." However, Bruchhagen added that that Frankfurt "has distinctively more fans than, for example, Wolfsburg and therefore a bigger amount of violent fans" (BILD, 11/21).
