Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich has been fined 15,000 euros ($19,500) after fans set off smoke bombs and fireworks at two league games.

The German football federation issued the fine on Monday, and said Bayern had agreed to pay the sum following the fan infringements at Hoffenheim on March 3 and at Bayer Leverkusen on March 16.

Bayern wrapped up the title on Saturday with a 1-0 win at Eintracht Frankfurt to become the quickest champion in the 50-year history of the Bundesliga.

The club takes a 2-0 lead to Juventus for the second leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday, and has a home semifinal to come on April 16 against Wolfsburg in the German Cup.
