That’s never happened before.

Dortmund’s cult stadium announcer Norbert Dickel (59) could no longer be heard because the technology had meanwhile given up.

The short circuits happened shortly after the game started and in the 26th minute.

At the end of the second half the technical error was fixed. The game with a 5-0 intermediate result has long been decided.

Dickel on the sound glitch about BILD: “We had technical difficulties. I can’t remember having experienced something like this before. “With a smile, he pushed after:” But it’s still going pretty well. “
