As the anger of Hertha fans grew
Free trading began at 12 noon on Monday. However, Hertha’s website apparently could not cope with the attack and collapsed in the meantime. This caused new confusion. HSV then announced that a contingent of 7,500 tickets was “sold out in a matter of minutes”. However, several Hamburg fans then announced that they had still managed to collect a large number of tickets from Hertha’s online stores. This again heightened the anger of Berlin fans. “We are being taken over and you are not doing anything,” one follower complained.
