Former East German football clubs move to stamp out racism

15 September 2007 15:30

BERLIN (AFP) - Three clubs from the former East Germany have banned any supporters showing symbols of extreme far-right groups or brands of clothing associated with racist speeches or anti-semitism.

"We will not tolerate anti-semitism, violence or the hatred of others in our football," said Bernd Maas, the managing director of third division Dynamo Dresden on Saturday.

The other clubs, third-division Magdeburg and second-division Iena, have also joined the incentive.

The measures are aimed at those wearing Thor Steinar clothing, which is associated with German extreme right-wing militants, but the three clubs have also moved to stamp out symbols of the extreme left.

"Flags, banners and clothing which points to organisations whose speeches are against the German constitution, are also banned," said a spokesman for Bundesiga second division side Iena.
