Dortmund riot details emerge

Initial reports of a restaurant being destroyed during riots ahead of Bundesliga match between rivals Borussia Dortmund and Schalke were untrue, Dortmund paper Ruhr Nachrichten reports on Monday.

•  Over 200 arrested after Ruhr derby

Outbursts of violence overshadowed the build-up to the 141st Revierderby between Dortmund and Schalke, as police in Dortmund arrested 163 travelling fans from Schalke and 17 from Dortmund. 11 people, eight of them police, were injured in fights between fans and police.

"Both Schalke and Dortmund supporters had the highest potential for violence and aggression in years," Dortmund police director Michael Stein told Ruhr Nachrichten on Sunday. Despite some 1.200 officers on duty, more than double as many as on a normal Bundesliga match, police were not able to prevent the violent clashes.

"The violent behaviour discharged against the police, who were there for the safety of all football fans will not be condoned. This has nothing to do with what we want to see in Dortmund," Stein added.

Ahead of the match some 600 Schalke fans had met up at a nearby university parking lot, with a further 100 Schalke supporters arriving at a different train station than police had planned for them. They made their way towards the stadium, but were stopped and surrounded by police before they could reach their destination.

In the meantime other Schalke supporters were attacked by Dortmund fans in front of the stadium. Bottles and paint bombs were directed at the Schalke fans, with police using tear gas to keep the fan groups apart.

However, initial reports of Dortmund fans destroying a beer garden ahead of the match were untrue, writes Ruhr Nachrichten. Police had claimed the beer garden was gutted by Dortmund followers "with furniture ripped apart and used as missiles against opposition fans and police." But according to Ruhr Nachrichten sources only one plastic stool had been destroyed ahead of the match.

Inside the stadium Schalke supporters presented a stolen banner from Dortmund's Ultra groups The Unity and Desperados. This led to both Dortmund Ultra groups trying to break through to the away section in an attempt to exact revenge but police were able to stop the fans and keep them on their side of the stadium.

After the match fan groups were separated, with Schalke fans left to celebrate their derby win inside Dortmund's Westfalenstadion a bit longer and no further outbreaks of violence were registered.
