Football: Four criminal charges after the RWO cup game against MSV Duisburg

There were no fan riots during the Rot-Weiss Oberhausen cup game against MSV Duisburg. But the police took action against pyrotechnics.

Friday evening brought moments of happiness for RWO fans: Rot-WeiƟ Oberhausen won the Niederrheinpokal game against their neighbor MSV Duisburg, who played a class higher, 2-1. The police reported four criminal charges for assault.

The party was “largely peaceful,” the police said after the game. 9,700 spectators were in the Niederrhein Stadium, including around 5,000 from Duisburg. The police were on site with numerous forces and had already taken the MSV supporters under supervision on the way to the stadium.

To celebrate the game, pyrotechnics were set off in the home block, which the police did not like at all because it is forbidden to set off fireworks in stadiums. The extent to which RWO can still expect an invoice from the DFB remained open on Friday evening.
