FRANKFURT, GERMANY (AP) - German police say the number of fans injured in violence at matches in the top two divisions last season reached a 12-year high.
A report published Tuesday says 846 people were injured in clashes between rival fans. Counting the third division, more than 1,000 people were injured.
However, there were fewer arrests with 6,061, a decrease of 723 over the previous season.
About 2,500 known troublemakers are banned from attending matches nationwide.
Police say 9,685 fans are registered as violence-prone across the country.
