Statement regarding Tuesday’s events

Article image:Statement regarding Tuesday’s events

Eintracht Frankfurt are committed to tolerance and diversity and have made their position very clear in the fight against racism, antisemitism and discrimination.

The club dissociates itself completely and utterly from the one isolated incident that occurred during the run-up to the UEFA Champions League match between Olympique de Marseille and Eintracht Frankfurt, where a gesture resembling a Nazi salute was made. Antisemitic ideas are totally opposed to the club’s categoric und immutable values and its roots.

The person who can be seen on the video and who has yet to be identified reported of their own accord to the Eintracht Frankfurt fan representatives during the first half of the match and emphatically denies the accusation of antisemitic motives. Eintracht Frankfurt will be conducting a detailed investigation of the events and the behaviour of the person involved.
