The German Football Association (DFB) has announced that it has canceled four planned friendly matches involving Turkish teams in Germany, due to security reasons.
 
According to a statement released by the DFB, the 1860 Rosenheim vs. Galatasaray game on July 11, the Monaco vs. Sivasspor match on July 19, the Fenerbahçe vs. Getafe game on July 25, and the 1860 Munich vs. Trabzonspor game on July 29 have all be canceled.
 
Last month, Turkish fans invaded the stadium while the German national team was playing a friendly game against Finland in Ingolstadt. The match was suspended due to the fans' invasion in the last minutes of the game.
