Fanclub Membership

All systems are Go! as we look for new members interested in supporting FC Sankt Pauli through our BrightonStPauli fanclub – and already we have a multi-contenental following, proving what an exceptional club FCSP really is.

Membership is free and details are explained on our website, which includes further links for an online application form and options to bag yourself your own @brightonstpauli.com email address.

Currently we have plans to travel to Sankt Pauli for a number of 2014 games, along with potential trips for various football games, music and social gatherings.

Just 16/18 days to go!!

The calendar’s starting to fill up…  With the close-season coming to an end focus soon switches to the 2013/14, and we still haven’t finished our summer yet!!!

In just over two weeks time the Bundesliga restarts, so here’s hoping for an improvement on last season for FC St Pauli.  As it turned out, the threat of relegation was a false prospect until FCSP’s great win against Eintracht and then MSV Duisburg later being denied a license in Bundesliga-2.

One of the few games I went to last season was a trip to Duisburg.  Had a great evening in Websters and was actually quite fond of the place in general – plus, there aren’t that many stadia in Germany that can be driven in a day from UK.  I fear that MSV might be doomed, as a drop to Bundesliga-3 simply makes their task even tougher if they can survive Bankruptcy.

So, 19th July sees FC St Pauli host 1860 München and I’m rather looking forward to a return to the Zeitgeist…

..then I have a two-day wait for something that was only announced this week; AFC Bournemouth hosting a friendly against Real Madrid!

Summer 2013, bring it on!!!
