The German Football Association has handed down three fines to Bundesliga clubs due to misbehaving fans. Bayern Munich is joined by Hoffenheim and Schalke in being fined, according to the DFB.

Bayern has been fined €5,000 by the DFB due to an incident during the November 28 match against Hertha Berlin. In the middle of the game, a fan ran onto the field and approached Thomas Müller for a hug. That hug was worth €5k to FCB.

Hoffenheim is facing a €8,000 fine after their supporters lit flares in the stands during the September 18 match away to Mainz. The flares were segregated to Hoffenheim's away section.

Schalke's fine is the result of supporters throwing things at Bayern Leverkusen's Hakan Calhanoglu and the assistant referee during the match on November 29. The fine is the highest at €10,000.

All of the teams have agreed to pay the fines, so there will be no appeals.
