The statement can be found on scarves sold by the group, and on a banner inside the stadium. RB Leipzig had previously refused to allow supporter groups such as Rasenballisten to sell their own merchandise at the stadium, but after lengthy negotiations, the club has given permission.

The stadium operator decided to support the initiative and agreed to switch off the lighting. The club refused to approve the requested banners, according to Red Aces because the club did not want politics in the stadium.

Despite the ban, the group displayed a banner directed towards Legida proclaiming the city of Leipzig to be diverse, cosmopolitan and tolerant. The club refused to approve the requested banner.

It is also subordinated to the Aufsichtsrat , the supervisory board. The honorary board is elected directly by the club members at the general meeting.

Significant organizational changes were made in , following requirements set up by the German Football League DFL. One of the requirements was to change the composition of organizational bodies.

Both the management board and the honorary board had been composed by either employees or agents of Red Bull. In addition, a supervisory board was added.

These functions were now transferred to a newly created supervisory board that can perform these tasks independently.

The club decided to transfer the former members of the honorary board to the newly created supervisory board. Voting membership is severely restricted.

According to Ulrich Wolter, the club does not aspire towards the high number of members of other clubs. Wolter has also pointed at other clubs, where Ultras have succeeded in creating structures, and stated that the club absolutely wants to avoid such conditions.

For the establishment of a registered voluntary association, an association is required by German law [] to have at least seven members.

Four years after its founding, the club had only 9 members, all employees of Red Bull. This restrictive membership policy met criticism, thus one of the original requirements set up by the DFL in order to obtain a license for the —15 2.

Bundesliga season was to lower the membership fees and open up the association for new members. The club responded to the pressure from the DFL and announced changes to the membership in June The annual fee for this type of membership is between 70 and euros and serves to promote junior football within the club.

In return, a supporting member receives certain privileges such as a meeting with the professional team and a fitness session at the Red Bull Arena.

Supporting members also have the right to attend general meetings, although without voting rights. On 2 December , the general meeting of the association voted unanimously for the founding of a spin-off organization in the form of a GmbH.

The decision was taken at an extraordinary meeting. Present were 14 voting members and 40 supporting members.

The remaining one percent is held by the association. In , the club switched to the American sportswear brand Nike , in an agreement that will be in place until at least In , Red Bull announced its intention to engage long term in Leipzig.

In this context the club sought a location for a training center and a youth academy. Towards the end of the year, the club made concrete plans to invest 30 million euros in a training center comprising six pitches, offices and a youth academy.

The training center was to be located at Cottaweg, partly on the area of the naturally protected riparian forest Leipziger Auwald and the site of the traditional fair Leipziger Kleinmesse.

The construction was to be carried out in two phases and began in March Pitch one was also provided with four 38 meter masts producing HD-compatible lightning for optimal television broadcasts.

Locker rooms, sanitary facilities and weight rooms were installed in 60 containers, totaling square meters. The second phase of construction began in January For the second phase, the training center was to be expanded with two pitches, an area for goalkeeping practices and a three-story 13, square meters sports complex, meant to offer amenities for all RB Leipzig teams, from the U8 team to the professional team.

In addition, pitch one was to be provided with a covered grandstand with at least 1, seats, for A- and B-junior matches. The new sports complex was opened in September and taken in use by the professional team and six junior teams, from U14 to the reserve team.

Remains to be constructed in the spring of are a covered grandstand with 1, seats, an area for motor skills-training and a parking area.

As of , the club has already plans for even further expansions of the training center. The club wants to build an additional pitch to the south of the training center.

Having finished as runners-up in their debut season in the German top flight, RB Leipzig gained entry to continental football for the first time, specifically the —18 UEFA Champions League for which Red Bull Salzburg had also qualified as Austrian champions ; this raised the issue of a possible conflict of interest between the clubs due to the level of influence exerted by Red Bull over both teams and the close sporting relationship between them in various aspects.

In the first season following that ruling, both reached the quarter-finals of the —18 UEFA Europa League but did not play each other, with RB Leipzig eliminated by Olympique de Marseille who then also knocked out Salzburg in the semi-finals.

However, in the next edition of the same competition, RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg were drawn together in Group B to meet competitively for the first time.

RB Leipzig is one of the first clubs in history to qualify for the Champions League so soon eight years after its creation.

The establishment of RB Leipzig has caused much controversy in Germany. The controversy has revolved around the apparent involvement of Red Bull GmbH and the restrictive membership policy.

Critics have been found both in the management and among coaches and supporters of other clubs. The introduction of RB Leipzig was met with protests from supporters of other Leipzig football clubs, notably 1.

They feared a decline of traditional fan culture in Leipzig, and a commercialization of football in the region. The German economist Dr. Tobias Kollman said in that he saw Red Bull GmbH as a company with clear economic goals for its projects.

He further complained that competing with RB Leipzig was not a fair deal, because the club could sign the players it wanted, and that such competition "had nothing to do with the sport that we love".

They have protested against commercialization of football, the apparent involvement of Red Bull GmbH and the allegedly undemocratic structures at RB Leipzig.

Following that RB Leipzig gained promotion to the 2. Bundesliga in , supporter groups from ten clubs in the 2. In March , the campaign web page indicated a number of supporter groups from 29 clubs.

The group members have stated that the identity of a club cannot solely rely on its main sponsor and the group has criticized Red Bull GmbH for dominating the external representation of the club.

Instead, the group wants to emphasize the name RasenBallsport and the Leipzig identity. Sporting director Ralf Rangnick has pointed at the fact that sponsors and investors are present also at other clubs.

He admitted that there was a difference: FC Bayern Munich first had sporting success, and then sponsors and investors.

However, he insisted that the situation at VfL Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen was exactly the same, and that VfL Wolfsburg became German champions in to a very large extent due to the financial support from Volkswagen AG.

He explained that when the company is committed in sports, it is involved in the sports operations itself. It has been suggested that the restrictive membership policy was implemented in order to prevent the club from being taken over by hostile supporters.

He also said that the conditions that had prevailed at some other clubs had certainly not been positive for their development.

The club entered a cooperation agreement with the supporter organization Fanprojekt Leipzig in , and the club also has a dialogue with the fan representatives of the supporter union Fanverband RB Leipzig Fans.

Bundesliga in and said that it was the best thing that could happen to football in Leipzig. He also rejected the complaints of "traditionalists", as 1.

Bayern Munich RB Leipzig. Still waiting for the breakthrough, but both sides have struck the woodwork. Bayern started better, but RB Leipzig have grown into the match.

The German international has taken a knee to the back of his knee, if that makes sense, and needs a moment to gather himself. Looks like an impact injury, though.

This is good pressing from RB Leipzig. They have grown into the match and are now not allowing Bayern Munich any time to play out from the back.

This time, Hummels has to kick long and out. It was always likely that this would be a tight affair. Just a couple points separates the two teams in the Bundesliga table and so this game could have a big bearing on the season.

This has turned into a bit of a struggle for Bayern Munich. They started the match on top and should have been ahead through that chance for Lewandowski, but have since been pegged back.

Inches away from being the opener for RB Leipzig. Upamecano jumped higher than anyone else to get on the end of a cross and smashes a header against the woodwork.

The injury to Gnabry has knocked Bayern Munich out of their stride a little bit. The shot was tame! Werner showed urgency in breaking to the byline and cutting the pass back for Bruma on the edge of the box.

His shot turns out to be a very tame one, though. The Bayern Munich players and fans believe that Werner bought that foul from Hummels, and they might have a point.

He spun to make the most of any contact. He was really starting to come into his own for Bayern Munich, scoring four goals in his last five games.

The winter break comes at the right time for him. This could be a problem for Bayern Munich. Gnabry looks to have pulled up and is sat down on the Allianz Arena turf.

Could this be his game over? Indeed, the replays show that Gulacsi just got a touch on the shot from Lewandowski. Lewandowski was clean through.

Gnabry slotted him through, Lewandowski beats Gulacsi, but his shot comes off the inside of the post and behind.

The RB Leipzig attacker cut inside off the left wing and got the shot away on goal. But Neuer watched it all the way and made the comfortable diving save.

Werner has 10 league goals for the season so far. He has four in his last five games and he will be the danger man for RB Leipzig this evening.

He can score against any opponent. Going back to the Hernandez news, Bayern Munich have confirmed that they will be overhauling their squad and spending big, but most assumed that would happen in the summer.

That was an awkward one for Hummels, who just had to get rid of the ball after being put under pressure by the pass from Alaba.

They have done okay in the Bundesliga, but they crashed out in the group stages of the Europa League last week. RB Leipzig are now getting a grip of the game.

They are still second best in terms of possession, but they look comfortable in the face of Bayern Munich having the ball. That was easy enough for Gulacsi.

Kimmich played the cross into the opposition penalty area, but it was far too close to the RB Leipzig goalkeeper, who can make the easy catch.

They have activated his release clause. RB Leipzig win a corner kick, but Bayern Munich effectively defend the delivery from Kampl and then they force Bruma wide as well.

The away side must use their set pieces. Of course, Kovac has struggled over the early part of his Bayern Munich career. The former Eintracht Frankfurt boss has struggled to make his mark on the German champions.

This has been a pretty strong start from Bayern Munich who are dictating things early on. RB Leipzig are having to do a lot of chasing, but they do have quality on the counter.

RB Leipzig have been extremely strong at home this season, but their recent record against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena leaves much to be desired.

They can change that here. Bayern Munich have started well. Gnabry looks lively for Bayern Munich early on.

The former Arsenal man has been in good form of late. He has four goals in his last five outings, so no surprise to see him start.

Looks like a good atmosphere at the Allianz Arena for this one. Dortmund lost last night which means that Bayern Munich, with a win over RB Leipezig tonight, can close that gap at the top of the Bundesliga.

Who do you consider to be the favourites here? The defending Bundesliga champions have struggled to find consistency so far this season. Kick off is at 7.

Find here all your favorites sports, events, teams and players for a quick access. Three minutes of stoppage time to be played at the end of the match.

And now another change for RB Leipzig with Poulsen coming off. On comes the Brazilian winger Cunha for the final few minutes at the Allianz Arena.

Bruma did quite well. Sanches is the latest player to be shown a yellow card for stopping a RB Leipzig counter attack.

For the establishment of a registered voluntary association, an association is required by German law [] to have at least seven members.

Four years after its founding, the club had only 9 members, all employees of Red Bull. This restrictive membership policy met criticism, thus one of the original requirements set up by the DFL in order to obtain a license for the —15 2.

Bundesliga season was to lower the membership fees and open up the association for new members. The club responded to the pressure from the DFL and announced changes to the membership in June The annual fee for this type of membership is between 70 and euros and serves to promote junior football within the club.

In return, a supporting member receives certain privileges such as a meeting with the professional team and a fitness session at the Red Bull Arena.

Supporting members also have the right to attend general meetings, although without voting rights. On 2 December , the general meeting of the association voted unanimously for the founding of a spin-off organization in the form of a GmbH.

The decision was taken at an extraordinary meeting. Present were 14 voting members and 40 supporting members. The remaining one percent is held by the association.

In this context the club sought a location for a training center and a youth academy. Towards the end of the year, the club made concrete plans to invest 30 million euros in a training center comprising six pitches, offices and a youth academy.

The training center was to be located at Cottaweg, partly on the area of the naturally protected riparian forest Leipziger Auwald and the site of the traditional fair Leipziger Kleinmesse.

The construction was to be carried out in two phases and began in March Pitch one was also provided with four 38 meter masts producing HD-compatible lightning for optimal television broadcasts.

Locker rooms, sanitary facilities and weight rooms were installed in 60 containers, totaling square meters. The second phase of construction began in January For the second phase, the training center was to be expanded with two pitches, an area for goalkeeping practices and a three-story 13, square meters sports complex, meant to offer amenities for all RB Leipzig teams, from the U8 team to the professional team.

In addition, pitch one was to be provided with a covered grandstand with at least 1, seats, for A- and B-junior matches.

The new sports complex was opened in September and taken in use by the professional team and six junior teams, from U14 to the reserve team.

Remains to be constructed in the spring of are a covered grandstand with 1, seats, an area for motor skills-training and a parking area.

As of , the club has already plans for even further expansions of the training center. The club wants to build an additional pitch to the south of the training center.

Having finished as runners-up in their debut season in the German top flight, RB Leipzig gained entry to continental football for the first time, specifically the —18 UEFA Champions League for which Red Bull Salzburg had also qualified as Austrian champions ; this raised the issue of a possible conflict of interest between the clubs due to the level of influence exerted by Red Bull over both teams and the close sporting relationship between them in various aspects.

In the first season following that ruling, both reached the quarter-finals of the —18 UEFA Europa League but did not play each other, with RB Leipzig eliminated by Olympique de Marseille who then also knocked out Salzburg in the semi-finals.

However, in the next edition of the same competition, RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg were drawn together in Group B to meet competitively for the first time.

RB Leipzig is one of the first clubs in history to qualify for the Champions League so soon eight years after its creation. The establishment of RB Leipzig has caused much controversy in Germany.

The controversy has revolved around the apparent involvement of Red Bull GmbH and the restrictive membership policy. Critics have been found both in the management and among coaches and supporters of other clubs.

The introduction of RB Leipzig was met with protests from supporters of other Leipzig football clubs, notably 1.

They feared a decline of traditional fan culture in Leipzig, and a commercialization of football in the region. The German economist Dr.

Tobias Kollman said in that he saw Red Bull GmbH as a company with clear economic goals for its projects. Consequently, he described RB Leipzig as a "marketing club" and said that it was the first of this kind in Germany.

They complained that such clubs are pushing back traditional clubs, and warned that RB Leipzig could well be the next such club to push a traditional club out of the Bundesliga.

As head coach of VfL Bochum , he said in that RB Leipzig "made him sick" and that he considered the club to be built on purely economical interests.

He further complained that competing with RB Leipzig was not a fair deal, because the club could sign the players it wanted, and that such competition "had nothing to do with the sport that we love".

They have protested against commercialization of football, the apparent involvement of Red Bull GmbH and the allegedly undemocratic structures at RB Leipzig.

Following that RB Leipzig gained promotion to the 2. Bundesliga in , supporter groups from ten clubs in the 2. In March , the campaign web page indicated a number of supporter groups from 29 clubs.

At away matches, the club has regularly been greeted with protests in various forms. During the away match against 1.

FC Union Berlin on 21 September , the home supporters symbolically wore black plastic ponchos and were silent for the first 15 minutes of the match.

A large banner displayed by home supporters said: Another banner displayed said: FC Heidenheim on 18 September , the player bus was approached upon the arrival at the stadium by supporters of 1.

During the home match against FC Hansa Rostock on 23 November , the away supporters protested by being entirely absent for the first seven minutes of the match and then filled the guest block in large numbers.

FC Union Berlin on 19 February At some occasions, the protests have turned into violence and threats. The player bus was attacked with bottles, and the police had to use pepper spray to succeed.

The team was insulted, spat at and pelted with beer cups during the warm-up, and had to leave the stadium with police escort after the match.

Riots also appeared after the match when home supporters tried to break through a security perimeter to approach away supporters.

Firecrackers and other objects were thrown at the police, and four police officers were slightly injured in the turmoil.

The night before the match, the lobby of the player hotel in Karlsruhe was stormed by local hooligans. Several football clubs, such as VfB Stuttgart , 1.

Some critics can however also be found among the supporters of RB Leipzig. The supporter group Rasenballisten describes itself as uniting critical supporters.

The group members have stated that the identity of a club cannot solely rely on its main sponsor and the group has criticized Red Bull GmbH for dominating the external representation of the club.

Instead, the group wants to emphasize the name RasenBallsport and the Leipzig identity. Sporting director Ralf Rangnick has pointed at the fact that sponsors and investors are present also at other clubs.

He admitted that there was a difference: FC Bayern Munich first had sporting success, and then sponsors and investors. However, he insisted that the situation at VfL Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen was exactly the same, and that VfL Wolfsburg became German champions in to a very large extent due to the financial support from Volkswagen AG.

He explained that when the company is committed in sports, it is involved in the sports operations itself. It has been suggested that the restrictive membership policy was implemented in order to prevent the club from being taken over by hostile supporters.

He also said that the conditions that had prevailed at some other clubs had certainly not been positive for their development. The club entered a cooperation agreement with the supporter organization Fanprojekt Leipzig in , and the club also has a dialogue with the fan representatives of the supporter union Fanverband RB Leipzig Fans.

Both Dietrich Mateschitz and sporting director Ralf Rangnick have made comments on transfer policy. Dietrich Mateschitz commented on the football commitment of Red Bulll GmbH in and said that the company was "no good stars buyers".

What we do, we try to do with our brain. Nothing is easier than to take a bag full of money and go shopping. That is stupid, stupid we are not".

And that with as many own players as possible". Bundesliga who had not signed any players from another club in the league. Several people have responded to the rejection of RB Leipzig as a "plastic club", which lacks traditions.

Sporting director Joachim Krug said in that RB Leipzig was simply a newly founded club with high ambitions.

By this, he meant that also RB Leipzig will one day become a traditional club. Sporting director Ralf Ragnick declared in that there were actually advantages to working in a new club without deep-rooted traditions.

He explained that structural changes and staffing decisions could be implemented quickly and flexibly at RB Leipzig, since there are no established hierarchies and less resistance in the environment.

He further said that he had seen enough examples of traditional clubs which have not made it anywhere. He said that to him, what mattered was if there existed a working philosophy and sustainability.

RB Leipzig has also received positive criticism and praise. He explained that young players will stay in the area and that the overall level of football in Lepzig will rise.

Mayor Burkhard Jung praised Dietrich Mateschitz as "honest, ambitious and serious". The prize ceremony was for the first time attended by the Minister-president of Saxony, Stanislaw Tillich.

He said that he hoped for high class football, and that it would have earned the whole region and East Germany. Bundesliga was a great development for East Germany and that the attendance boom in Leipzig showed just how much the club had been awaited.

He said that decisive would be what the club could offer its fans, and that if the model works, it would be beneficial for all football, not only for football in East Germany.

Bundesliga in and said that it was the best thing that could happen to football in Leipzig. He also rejected the complaints of "traditionalists", as 1.

In interviews published in German newspaper Bild in , representatives of several Leipzig football clubs explained how their clubs had benefited from the establishment of RB Leipzig.

Former FC Sachsen Leipzig liquidator Heiko Kratz explained that by , the club was no longer able to finance its youth academy, but by selling its A to D junior teams to RB Leipzig, at least they could give the players a future.

Ralph Zahn from ESV Delitzsch said that the financial compensation from RB Leipzig had made it possible for the club to build an artificial turf pitch with floodlights for the cost of , euros.

RB Leipzig also had an increase in five out of six image values. Sympathetic had increased 2. A study carried out by the company Repucom in showed that RB Leipzig had a nationwide increase of 60 percent in press, radio and television.

This would be a massive win for the Bavarians. The French winger then cut his shot back to find the corner of the net.

Into the last 10 minutes of this match and it just feels like Bayern Munich might be turning the screw on RB Leipzig.

They have created more in the past five minutes than in the whole match. That should have been a goal. Kimmich arrived on the scene to meet a Lewandowski header across goal, but his powerful header was clawed out by Gulacsi.

Sule over the bar! The Bayern Munich centre back should have done so much better with that. Gulacsi dropped a cross, but Sule volleyed over the bar from about eight yards out.

Is there a winner left in this match? All of a sudden it just feels like Bayern Munich are cranking things up. They know how important this match will be for their season.

The cross was made by Alaba and Muller tried to guide it goalward. But if flashes wide. Both teams are cancelling each other out at the moment.

Kovac looks a little concerned on the touchline. The pressing game from RB Leipzig has been impressive throughout.

They are now allowing Bayern Munich to settle at all and having two up front means they can press high. The Bayern Munich goalkeeper is making the case that Poulsen pushed Hummels into him as he came out for a ball.

Replays show he might have a case. The ball fell to the feet of the Portuguese midfielder about 20 yards out from goal. He steadies himself before striking, but the ball flashes wide of the near post.

Ragnick will be pleased with what he has seen since the half time break. Keep in mind the opportunity that Bayern Munich have been handed this evening.

Borussia Dortmund lost last night. This is a chance for the champions to close the gap. Not so long ago, Sanches was thought to be finished in the game, at least at the top level.

But Kovac has brought him back into the fold at Bayern Munich this season and he has impressed. The RB Leipzig striker was played through and his shot was deflected over.

The flag stayed down until the play had finished, then it was raised. That was an opportunity for Bayern Munich to make the breakthrough.

Coman was looking for Lewandowski with a drilled cross, but the pass was just a little too strong. Will Kovac be thinking about a change to his team already here?

RB Leipzig are pegging them back. Not creating much at all. The injury to Gnabry in the first half seemed to knock Bayern Munich out of their stride.

They had been on top until that moment, but the Bavarians have lost their way since then. This has been a slow start to the second half from Bayern Munich.

They are giving up possession way too cheaply inside their own half and that is giving RB Leipzig encouragement. The first half was a strange one.

Bayern Munich started the better of the two teams and could have taken the lead through Lewandowski. Then RB Leipzig came into the contest.

The second half is under way at the Allianz Arena! What did you make of the first half? Verlag Der Tagesspiegel GmbH.
