If you watch an SC Freiburg home match live in the stadium in the future, you must remember the internal regulations again.
The Bundesliga club is now trying to enforce the long-standing ban on smoking in the stadium more strongly with an innovation. From now on, yellow and red cards will be given in the event of an infraction in the stands. Repeated violations may result in expulsion from the stadium.
“The sports club has been committed to health for a long time and now wants to strengthen it again. Visitors who repeatedly ignore the smoking ban in force in the stands of the Europa-Park stadium can now be warned with a yellow card. There is virtually no way to escape the smoke from the people sitting next to you, especially in the stands. Anyone who deliberately violates the internal regulations despite a yellow card and is caught doing so will therefore receive a red card and may be expelled from the stadium,” the sports club said in a statement.
“Please be respectful to non-smokers, use smoking areas in the stadium, especially in traffic – and do not receive a ticket,” it continues.
