After a year, Schalke 04 is back in the Bundesliga. On the penultimate day of play, the Knappen were able to fix the immediate resurgence. While tears were shed by the supporters last season, Schalke fans cried out tears of joy and cheered last weekend. But after the 3:2 win against St. Pauli, which finally fixed the rise, fans stormed onto the field to celebrate this success. So the lavish party of the Royal Blues had a bitter aftermath.
A catastrophe was narrowly avoided. After a crowd in the stands, several people fell and were injured. According to the “Bild” there are still eight fans in the hospital. One trailer is even in intensive care due to a brain hemorrhage. He fell while climbing over the parapet in the fan block. Because the fans were almost crushed by the pressure on the parapet, police officers had to intervene with mobile ladders. In addition, a police officer was injured after a scuffle with a fan on the pitch. The officer was then no longer able to work.
In addition, the police filed a complaint against several Schalke players because they ran across the lawn with pyrotechnics in their hands. However, this violates the Explosives Act. In any case, the party with 62,000 fans only ended at 5:29 a.m.
