Club statement on the events surrounding the Berlin Derby

Hertha BSC strongly condemns and distances itself from the unacceptable behaviour of a small minority of fans that overshadowed the derby between the Blue-Whites and 1. FC Union Berlin.

We were all looking forward to a spectacular evening of football in Berlin, but unfortunately, the derby was overshadowed by the actions of a small few. Hertha BSC strongly condemns and distances itself from all forms of unacceptable behaviour showcased by small groups of fans from both teams last night. In particular, the use of pyrotechnics within the stadium and stands is unacceptable. We will discuss last night’s events with the fans and use the discussion to come up with solutions to prevent this from happening again. The events from the derby are strongly condemned not only by all Hertha employees, members and executives, but also by the majority of fans, as they run counter to our club values.
