Club’s rise into German football’s top flight has been dogged by boycotts and protests over its Red Bull-fuelled commercial structure
Not allowing the other club to licence the logo for the match scarf is a pretty stone cold rejection of them by Dortmund and one I actually think is quite unique. Leipzig have become the representation of everything that football is desperately trying to avoid being labeled as since the eighties - purely a vehicle for commercial interests and the pursuit of more revenue. That's ignoring Red Bull themselves who grow shadier by the year. Good for the fans to support the youth teams instead. Hell of an atmosphere that game will be for the kids playing.
