DYNAMO DRESDEN Ultras have ‘declared war’ on the German Football Federation.
Around 2,000 turned up to the Bundesliga 2 away clash with Karlsruhe dressed in army gear from head to toe, which included face paint.
Already difficult to see due to their attire, the huge group used black smoke guns to make their entrance to the stadium all the more spectacular with those at the front of the procession beating drums.

And they held a sign proclaiming: “War on the DFB.”
They then proceeded to fill the air with various colours.
When inside the stadium, they created a raucous atmosphere which consisted of a ‘Poznan style’ celebration.
And later passed around a massive anti-German Football Federation banner, though local newspaper, Die Welt, report that even the club are unsure specifically what the protest was aimed at.
Violence ensued in and around the stadium — and 15 police and 21 stewards were left injured.
The incident is being investigated by the national authorities.
The visitors won a pulsating match 4-3 against the league’s bottom side.
Dynamo Dresden fans are considered among the most dangerous in the country and have already been in trouble for their behaviour earlier this season.
During a cup game against Red Bull Leipzig, they took exception to the fact the Bundesliga high-fliers are owned by a major corporation — and threw a severed bull’s head on the pitch.
The energy drinks company’s ownership of the club has irked many in Germany, where clubs are mostly fan owned.
The incident saw Dresden fined just over £50,000.
