Security police are investigating after football fans sang along to an early 2000s eurodance rave classic at a game with new lyrics proclaiming “Germany for Germans, foreigners out” {snip}

A football match being played at the home turf of team ‘TSV Blau-Weiß Eggersdorf’ at Bördeland-Eggersdorf in Saxony-Anhalt against ‘Union 1861 Schönebeck’ was cancelled in the second half after fans started singing a song calling for migrant deportations.

The Salzland District Football Association said they had initiated disciplinary procedures over the fans’ behaviour and notified the state-level sports authority. The police were also called, who identified those involved and began an investigation which has now been taken over by the state security police, who are looking into “incitement” charges.

According to German newspaper Die Welt a group of around ten football fans at the game — which had already reached its 70th minute and was being resoundingly won 7:0 by Eggersdorf — including teens and adolescents were heard singing “Deutschland den Deutschen, Ausländer raus”, or ‘Germany for Germans, foreigners out’. {snip}

FuPa, a web portal dedicated to regional German football, carries a report on the abandoned Eggersdorf match noting that once the singing began, players of the then-losing ‘Union 1861 Schönebeck’ team walked off the pitch and refused to keep playing. The site relays that “Some players cried in the dressing room after the game.”
