In the dispute over the use of the logo of Cup Final Contrahent SC Freiburg, RB CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has indirectly subordinated the Breisgauen.
In “Breisgauen1”-“Double Pass” said Mintzlaff, you are in the cup final for the third time. “We once played against Dortmund, once against Bayern. Both treated ourselves with respect, with both of us we moved at eye level. I don’t have to say more about that,” said Mintzlaff.
Before the final in Berlin, the Freiburgers had prohibited the use of their logo for common fan articles with opponent Leipzig, as a spokesman for the SC confirmed without giving reasons last Sunday. Freiburg had prohibited the use of his logo for common fan articles as well as the use of the SC coat of arms. On the Instagram page of the Freiburg online magazine “Nordtribüne.org” for fans it says: “No common thing with the construct”. Already in March 2016, the Ultra group Corrillo had expressed its displeasure with the Saxon club at the duel in the 2nd Bundesliga.
The final is looking forward to the final and could have sold over 50,000 tickets within a few minutes, said Mintzlaff, countering allegations that Leipzig had no pronounced fan scene. For the Europa League semi-final last Thursday, only 1,000 supporters of the Saxons had traveled to the Glasgow Rangers.
RB Leipzig has been criticized by opposing fans since its foundation. The Saxons are accused, among other things, that the club is only so successful thanks to the investments of the beverage billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz and ultimately only serves as a marketing tool. “We have arrived in the Bundesliga, an integral part of the league. You also have to allow new things,” says Mintzlaff.
