The football Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund has distanced itself from a poster campaign against the right. An unknown person had hung up posters with portraits, and wrong quotations of the BVB players and their coach Lucien Favre at a plurality of locations in Dortmund's city centre. This is based, apparently, on a cooperation of the German Bundesliga team with the Federal Ministry for family Affairs, as well as the Initiative Exit, which advises dropouts from the extreme right-wing scene.
BVB managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke denied, however, a participation of the Association: "I've heard that there are these Fake posters. We have nothing to do with it. Whether we can defend ourselves against it, I don't know." The Federal Ministry for family Affairs, whose Logo appeared on the posters of the campaign is not known, informed the authority of the German press Agency.
The police have initiated investigations of the authors. In addition, the operator for street furniture, Wall had the Poster, in the meantime, remove and report it, said a spokeswoman. "We received on Saturday the note on the posters and immediately tested, whether they come from one of our customers. That was not the case," said company spokeswoman Frauke Bank. The Advertising display cases are opened illegally and been fitted. However, there had been no significant damage. "An illegal use of our systems is more often. Unusually, the many apparently fake Logos are here."
On the posters were polarizing statements of BVB-to-read professionals, former players and coach Lucien Favre. So Mario Gotze is quoted as saying "Prefer the championship to Bayern lose than Dorstfeld to the Nazis". In addition to Götze also alleged Statements by captain Marco Reus ("Dear Schalke victory as Nazikiez goods") to see right-back Łukasz Piszczek ("Dear substitutes' bench as a right – winger"), Lucien Favre ("duration maps for Nazi dropouts"), and the former BVB players, Andreas Möller ("Milan or Madrid-the main thing is not Dorstfeld").

Also on Twitter BVB distanced himself from the action. Borussia Dortmund stand for the fight against racism and dissociate from any Form of discrimination. BVB is not the author of the currently in circulation posters. A similar explanation was there of the organization's Exit. Anyone who has hung the posters in fact, was not known.

BVB is not the author of the currently in circulation posters.
"We will clear it up for sure. But that's not today is the right day for it", commented BVB-media Director Sascha Fligge after the match against Fortuna Düsseldorf.
in addition to the numerous positive reactions to the action in the city evoked criticism. Thus, it was argued, inter alia, that due to the posters all Dorstfelder as Nazis would be labeled. The Dortmund district for a Long time as a stronghold of the extreme right-wing scene.
