The Deutsche Fußball-Bund (DFB) have handed Bayern Munich a €45,000 fine after a final review of two events following the club’s April 23, 2016 match in the Bundesliga away to Hertha Berlin.

The start of the match was delayed by a minute and a half due to smoke from flares burning in the Bayern supporter section. Then, following the match, Bayern fans were engaged in “violent clashes” with the police.

This isn’t the firs time that Bayern have been fined by the DFB during the 2015-16 season. In January, Bayern were handed a paltry €5,000 fine after a fan ran onto the field to hug Thomas Müller, delaying the game.

Bayern have 24 hours from the time they were notified to appeal the decision. Due to the clear evidence and small amount, it is likely that Bayern will accept their punishment and pay the fine to the DFB without any further action.
