Fail – Hamburg fans do their best to set themselves on fire

Posted by - November 24, 2012 - Germany

The Bundesliga is a bloody brilliant spectacle with it’s beer in the stands, cheap tickets, great football and safe standing, but some Hamburg fans almost gave things a rather taste with their flare antics.

They were in the away end after travelling to watch their side face Dusseldorf when they lit a series of flares. They out on quite a show which was reasonably spectacular, but then made the silly mistake of setting fire to their own banner.

The banner went up reasonably quickly, whilst the supporters were in danger of receiving some quite significant burns. Thankfully, no-one was hurt in the incident.
