TEMPO.CO, JakartaGerman football club Borussia Dortmund donated jersey number 19 belonging to their star, Julian Brandt for the families of the victims of the Kanjuruhan Tragedy at Malang.

According to his written statement on Wednesday night, the jersey that was being auctioned off was purchased by a businessman from Vietnam for US$1,500.

Borussia Dortmund Managing Director, Carsten Cramer, presented the results of the auction to the Indonesian Ambassador to Singapore, Suryopratomo at One Fullerton Hotel, Wednesday.

"This is part of our sympathy for the families of the victims of the tragedy at the Kanjuruhan Stadium," said Cramer.

Dortmund is on a tour of Southeast Asia following a break in competition due to the 2022 World Cup. The eight-time German League champions are scheduled for a friendly match against Singapore League champions, Lion City Sailors FC on Thursday (November 24) at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

Cramer also apologized to Dortmund fans in Indonesia for the cancellation of their visit to Surabaya.

"We have scheduled to visit Indonesia besides Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam. Hope next time we will stop by and play in Indonesia," said the Dortmund Managing Director.

The incident that occurred at the Kanjuruhan Stadium was the reason for the cancellation of Dortmund's visit to Surabaya. The continuation of the case of the tragedy at the Kanjuruhan Stadium has forced football matches to be on halt in Indonesia.

Borussia Dortmund took all the team members on a tour of Southeast Asia, most consisting of players who aren't called to the national team for the ongoing World Cup. The members consist of team captain Marco Reus, centre-back Mats Hummels, and Emre Can was brought along by coach Edin Terzic on the trip.''

Reus was dropped by Coach Hans-Dietter Flick from the national team due to an ankle ligament injury while appearing in the Bundesliga game against Schalke last September.

"Unfortunately I can not defend the national team. But I'm grateful that the injury is getting better now," said Reus, who is absent from Die Mannschaft at the World Cup due to injury.
