1. FC Köln: bottle throws after a near goal

As a reaction to Sebastian Andersson’s failure to score 1-0, the mood was briefly upset, as police spokesman Christoph Gilles reported to EXPRESS.

When the FC team bus arrived on May 22, 2021, Junkersdorfer Strasse was already full of fans. As the game progressed, the crowd threw bottles at the police officers.

Accordingly, fireworks were increasingly ignited at the time. When the Cologne police intervened, bottles were thrown. Several fans from their own side were injured, as well as at least one media representative.

Even after the game, the police have a lot to do. There have been several arrests. Concrete figures are not yet available.

After FC relegation: A lot of work for the Cologne police

At around 5.45 p.m. Junkersdorfer Strasse emptied more and more. Many fans, especially the peaceful ones, were at the end of their nerves. What a finale. And the FC has not finished yet. The relegation means a lot of work for the Cologne police.

At the concrete car, the work of art “Resting Traffic” by Wolf Vostell, otherwise the goal of thousands of football fans after FC or national team successes, things remain quiet this time.

“Nothing has been won yet,” says a man near a kiosk on Rudolfplatz. He runs the FC anthem in a loop. At the traffic lights a family man stops jubilantly with several Pänz: “Today the first thing that counts is that we haven’t dismounted!”

At 6.45 p.m. there was still a block of around 200 Ultras at the stadium, chanting FC chants and waiting for the Cologne players.
