Changes to guidance for PAOK supporters in Germany
Fans are encouraged to read about some important changes to the guidance from Eintracht Frankfurt regarding assembly times for fans and transfer to the stadium for the match in Germany.
The weather conditions will be difficult in Frankfurt on the day of the match, so it has been decided that the stadium turnstiles will open at 19:00. PAOK supporters who will not travel by train from the meeting point are requested to be at the stadium as early as possible, for a smooth and timely entry into the stadium.
The meeting point is O’Reilly’s Irish Pub (Am Hauptbahnhof 4, 60329 Frankfurt am Main), next to the Central Train Station. Double-headed Eagle fans are encouraged to be there at 17:30 in order to depart by train, escorted by the German police, to the Deutsche Bank Park.
Fans without a ticket should not approach the stadium as German police will be conducting strict security checks.
The following are prohibited at Deutsche Bank Park:
- Possession and use of firecrackers and flares.
- Helmets and umbrellas.
- Any object that can hide someone’s face (scarves, full-face masks).
- Knives, weapons and objects that can cause bodily harm.
- Banners and flags with racist or political content.
- Banners and flags longer than two meters and poles for the banners.
- Laser devices.
- Alcohol and any packaging that is glass or aluminum.
- Backpacks, bags and suitcases.
- Drums, horns.
After the match, PAOK fans will have to wait for a while in the special Ostkurve area, outside gates 19-21 of the stadium. There will be stores open with drinks and refreshments, as well as toilets. After the necessary time has passed, fans will be escorted by the German police to their means of transport.
PAOK fans are requested to comply with the measures of the German authorities in order to avoid any risk of punishment of the team or possible legal actions against them. The authorities in Germany are particularly strict and show zero tolerance for offenders.
