Hamburg fined over missile

02 Dec 2008 - 14:01:52

Hamburg have been fined 35,000 euros after Werder Bremen's Frank Baumann was struck by a missile thrown from the crowd during last month's derby meeting at the HSH Nordbank Arena.

The Bremen skipper was struck by a mobile phone battery after his side celebrated their equaliser in front of the hone fans during their 2-1 defeat on November 23.

The German FA (DFB) opened an immediate investigation but have opted not to hit Hamburg with a stadium ban.

"In the case of a further serious occurrence, the DFB sporting court has threatened Hamburg with a stadium ban or with having to play a match behind closed doors," read a statement on behalf of the association.
