Both clubs condemned the racist abuse and Hamburg said it was investigating. “HSV stands for diversity. Racism has no place either in the Volksparkstadion, or in our society,” Hamburg said on Twitter.

“We stand with the players who were affected and we will do everything possible to investigate the incidents and to implement punishment.”

Fans returned to German soccer stadiums in recent months after a long absence during the pandemic. “Racism cannot be tolerated at any time and in any place,” Fortuna said. “We hope that HSV manages to clear up these incidents as quickly as possible.”
