IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR ST PAULI-LONDON GROUP
We are very excited to be told that EWALD LIENEN (current FC St Pauli Technical Director and of course Fussballmanager Gott of the previous two seasons if you didn’t already know), OKE GOTTLICH (FC ST Pauli President) and NICK DAVIDSON (Outside Left Blogger and author of ‘Pirates, Punks & Politics’ , the first English language book about FC St Pauli and a must-read [and money goes to the 1910 Museum]) will be coming along to the Zeitgeist pub on Friday 20 October to meet up with St Pauli-London fans (from about 7pm). Nick and co. are in London to attend the Hamburg on Tour exhibition (which runs on the Friday and Saturday) – Nick will be reading from his book at the exhibition, and also be talking to Ewald. Both things not to be missed – but you need to book a free ticket to attend.
We are London-based fans of the radical German football club FC St Pauli – yes, we’re St Pauli-London!
Watching St Pauli games in London
We get together to watch Pauli games LIVE and in FULL at the Zeitgeist-London pub in Vauxhall (49-51 Black Prince Rd, London SE11 6AB). If you’re in London come join us for German footie, beer and food.
We also run a Food Bank Collection (for the Trussell Trust) at every game, so please bring something if you come along. Every little helps.

Why do we follow FC St Pauli?
We like the heady mix of football and politics. Any fan will tell you that it isn’t the quality of football that attracts them but what the club – and the fans – stand for. It’s more than football. Much more. From the vehement anti-fascist, anti-racist, anti-sexist stance, and opposition to any form of discrimination; support for the rights of football fans and culture; resistance to all out commercial modern football; to it’s DIY punky party vibe. Moreover, tickets prices are affordable, there is terrace standing, drinking and smoking. Against modern football is not living in the past. It is the present and future of football. Something the self-serving Premier £eague has swapped for a side-show of Sky high wages, high-maintenance egoes, transfer window shopping, TV rights and and media money and nothing to do with fans, community blah blah blah.
