Eintracht is a prick. In the final hours before the Europa League semi-final second leg against West Ham United (Thursdays from 9pm on hr-iNFO podcast), Eintracht’s officials are slowly running out of favourite. “It’s a unique game at home. The decision was made – unlike three years ago at Chelsea – this time with our own property,” Eintracht coach Axel Hellmann said on Tuesday.

“Reaching to the final will be a milestone for the club and will have a huge impact on development.” Big game with big emotions – and maybe even big traffic chaos.

There will be a Sabr match on Thursday evening, especially on the roads leading to the stadium, but also in the opposite direction. Hellmann: “We advise all spectators to use public transportation to reach the stadium.” Because there will also be a rally for the fans. A fan of West Ham United.

Eintracht expects 6000 West Ham fans

3000 tickets officially went to the semi-final opponents of the English Premier League. However, Eintracht expects another 3,000 fans to come for the English club. The meeting point will be the Römerberg / Paulskirche area and an Irish pub in the station area. However, planned ship tours for English audiences on the Main were banned for safety reasons.

According to Eintracht information, most of the 6000 fans will be attending the fan rally. This can then bring traffic to a complete standstill. Where exactly the fan’s career ends is currently unclear. Eintracht expects an uptick on the field. According to police, fans will walk from London from Romer to the Hauptbahnhof and then take special trains. Either way, there will be a lot going on.

Hellmann: “We expect that there will be many fans in the stadium even without a ticket. The police are prepared for this situation.” The match against West Ham sold out to a total of 48,000 spectators. On online ticket platforms, high prices are currently required to get a ticket again.

Eintracht does not want any spectators in the stands like the first leg

There will be increased access and security controls at the entrances to the stadium. “We will continually block illegal access,” Hellman said. However, not a single thing will happen in the match in Frankfurt: fans far from the regular stand will be turned away.

BACKGROUND: Several Eintracht fans were reported to the security forces by local fans in the first leg of the former London Olympic Stadium and three years ago in the Eintracht semi-final in Chelsea, and then were pushed off the pitch by them. “Just because someone has another club’s crest on their scarf doesn’t mean they will be kicked out of the neutral seating areas,” Hellman emphasized.

Many former Eintracht coaches come to the game

Eintracht invited several of their former coaches to the big match, who also played for Eintracht in the European Cup during their time: Friedhelm Funkel, Armin Feh and the Kovac brothers are coming. Uday Hotter. Hellmann: “I’m very happy he’s coming. We made it clear in a half-hour phone call. Speaking for Addy, he’s still very interested in Eintracht.”

The entire UEFA leadership will be present on Thursday with President Aleksander Ceferin. However, the UEFA chiefs not only want to watch the semi-finals of Eintracht’s atmosphere against West Ham, but also want to speak to Hellmann about his criticisms of the Champions League reform.

If Eintracht reaches the final against West Ham, the sporting issue could soon become a topic. Because the winner of the Europa League qualifies for the next Champions League season. But step by step. First of all, Eintracht should not be eliminated in Thursday’s ‘one-time home first leg’.
