Hannover pass flare-lighting fine on to fan
Hannover were fined by the German football association (DFB) after flares were lit in the stands during their league game against Augsburg in September. Flares are banned in all German stadiums.
The fan, who was identified and has signed a document admitting his guilt, will now have to come up with the money, the club said.
"In my opinion this process did not have any alternative," club boss Martin Kind told the Hannover website.
"We will continue holding those people responsible and pass on any DFB or UEFA fines to the culprits."
