Hamburg (SID) - some fans of football club FC St. Pauli to Bremen not accept with the impending "ghost game" on April 23 against Werder and are considering an action for damages against the German Football Federation (DFB). The Hamburg law firm KWAG judged the punishment of neighborhood clubs as "completely inappropriate" and announced a rigorous action against the upcoming Thursday's decision of the DFB Sportgerichtes.
"As lawyers, the courtrooms are our playing field, and we will try to teach a sensitive defeat the DFB here," said Jens-Peter Gieschen. The lawyer has hired two business courses in the Millerntor-Stadion as a self-professed fan of St. Pauli and had planned to attend the Northern Derby with clients and business partners. "The visit of the stadium is part of our promotional activities", said Gieschen, and therefore, "confirming the sanction of the DFB on their appropriateness".
The Hanseatic Office receives support from Kai-Oliver Knops of the University of Hamburg. The Professor of civil and business law estimates although the action for damages, which he personally prepared, not as "Self-perpetuating", legal success was however not excluded.

The leaders of the abstiegsbedrohten who then put an objection against the judgment and hope at the hearing on Thursday, still to be able to turn away the penalty.
