The St. Pauli Football Club from 1910 e. V. , or FC St. Pauli for short , is a sports club from the Hamburg district of St. Pauli . The date of foundation is May 15, 1910; the club colors are brown and white.

The club has 22 departments in different disciplines of competitive and popular sports. The most famous and active department with the largest number of members is the soccer department , the first men's team of which plays in the 2nd Bundesliga . Your venue is the Millerntor Stadium on the Heiligengeistfeld near the Reeperbahn , which is why the players are also known as " Kiezkicker ".

Departments of the association

FC St. Pauli has a total of 30,400 club members (as of July 2020), making it one of the 20 largest sports clubs in Germany . All sports departments with the exception of professional footballers and the AFM (only passive members) have the amateur board as a common statutory body, which is intended to make the interests of active amateurs of all age groups heard, especially within the club.



FC St. Pauli was the soccer department (games and sports department) of Hamburg-St. Pauli Turnverein 1862 (founded on May 1st, 1862 through a merger of MTV in Hamburg - founded on September 7th, 1852 - with TV in St. Pauli and in front of Dammthore - founded on September 7th, 1860). FC St. Pauli was officially founded on May 15, 1910, but was only entered in the register of associations as an independent club in 1924 in the course of the clean separation between gymnastics and sports clubs . His club colors are brown and white. Today the number of members is 30,440.

The beginnings

Long before the game department of Hamburg-St. Pauli TV has already played football “on” St. Pauli. From the first season in 1895/96, point games of the Hamburg-Altona Football Association were regularly played on the Heiligengeistfeld , as the only other space available on the small parade pasture in Altona was usually insufficient. In 1900, FC Victoria played its home games there in 1895 . FC Alemannia 1896 also played on the Heiligengeistfeld and for a few years used the addition “St. Pauli ”in its club name. Due to the construction of its own squares, the Heiligengeistfeld was no longer needed for point games at the beginning of the 20th century.

In 1900, the FC St. Pauli 1900, which only existed for a few years, was founded and belonged to an independent association.

In November 1906, the members of Hamburg St. Pauli TV 1862 were called upon to found a game department in which, in particular, football was to be played. Only in the spring of 1907 did enough members register to be able to form a team. As far as is known, only two friendlies had been played by the summer of that year.

In the 1907/08 season, eleven friendly matches took place, mostly against non-association clubs or reserve teams within the Hamburg city limits. Seven of the eleven meetings were won. The following 1908/09 season saw the formation of a second team, and the reserve team, like the first team, only played friendly matches. Overall, both teams are said to have played around a dozen matches, with the balance being more balanced.

The 1909/10 season began with parlor games until the game department of Hamburg-St. Pauli TV was included in the North German Football Association (NFV). The first team was assigned for the second half of the 3a class in District III (Hamburg / Altona), in which almost exclusively the third teams of the clubs from the top division were. Participation was out of competition, as was customary for teams who were registered later. The start of the point game on January 30, 1910 against the third team of SC Germania 1887 ended with a 2-0 victory, although the TV had only started with ten players. The league premiere for the second team, which was assigned to the 3b class, was less successful; the first game with the IV. Team of the Eimsbütteler TV on February 6, 1910 ended with a 1:12 defeat.

For the first time this season, TV left the Hamburg city limits. He played friendlies in Cuxhaven and Denmark, all of which ended in defeats. On April 22, 1910, after the department had been in existence for three years and 18 days before the official founding date, the Hamburg-St. Pauli TV already had four teams and the fifth was formed. A total of 28 games were played, with six wins and 20 defeats.

League operation

For the 1910/11 season, the first team of the newly formed 1c class - i.e. the 3rd division - was assigned, in which there were no reserve teams. In addition to the second team, the third and fourth set also took part in the championship games for the first time. The intended goal, the promotion to the second highest division, was just missed in the first year. The performance stagnated and a downward trend began. Good players left the club and joined other clubs. The loss was extremely large at the end of December 1912, when 57 of the almost 230 registered players left the club on the same day. Before the First World War , a local competition arose with St. Pauli SpVgg , which started its gaming operations around the same time as Hamburg-St. Pauli TV recorded.

During the First World War, TV made the leap into the second division. Since other clubs had to withdraw from championship games due to a lack of players, the gymnasts could move up thanks to the runner-up in the 1c class. In 1915/16 the Hamburg-St. Pauli TV master of his season. For participation in the relegation round , a playoff against SC Concordia 1907 was scheduled for May 7, 1916 on the Victoria sports field at the Hoheluft . The Concordes had won the championship of their squadron; all 20 point games were victorious with a goal balance of 155: 13. At the break, the TV surprisingly led 1-0, but at the end had to bend 1: 4.

In 1919 the desired promotion to the top division was achieved, which was called 1a class (and was usually simply called “A class” in the press); it now comprised 13 clubs, as some syndicates had dissolved again after the end of the war. In an easy round, the gymnasts ended up in last place. Only the penultimate, the SpVgg 1903 Blankenese, could be beaten 2: 1; the remaining eleven encounters were lost. The biggest defeat was registered with 0: 9 against SC Victoria , in the very first point duel between the two clubs. After completing the single round, the table was divided. The TV played in the alleged relegation round, took sixth place among seven participating teams and would have been relegated again immediately; because of a division reform that became irrelevant, because the A-class was now continued as the 2nd division - below the re-introduced regional league of the NFV.

The St. Pauli SV in 1901 , popularly known as St. Pauli Sport , gained strength from (nominally) local competition . This club was founded as FC Britannia , after the start of the war it was first renamed FC Blücher , later renamed St. Pauli SV after a merger and was more successful than FC for years. Today it is called Grün-Weiß Eimsbüttel after further mergers . In the years up to the end of the Second World War , FC St. Pauli developed into a so-called “ elevator team ” that constantly shuttled back and forth between the first and second division. Since (with temporary exceptions) no coach was hired, the often existing playful potential could not be further developed.

After 1945 a "miracle team", as it is often called in retrospect, managed to establish itself for years among the top teams in North Germany. The central figure was Karl Miller , who has been known since his time at Dresdner SC with players like Walter Dzur , Heinz Hempel and Heiner Schaffer . You and other Dresdeners came to FC after the war and became leading figures, Hempel later also a long-time coach. Occasionally Helmut Schön made guest appearances in the team, Hans Appel and goalkeeper Willi Thiele came from Berlin, and in 1946 Hans Sauerwein joined them as coach . In those years the rivalry - now also sporting - with the HSV from the “fine” Rothenbaum district , from which the championship title in Hamburg was taken for the first time in 1946/47 , intensified . In the Oberliga Nord , both clubs were at eye level in the early years. In 1947, however, the non-participation in the zone championship had cost the FC sympathy and a possible great success. Famous today are photos from the summer of 1948, when the team had to make their way to the championship game against Union Oberschöneweide on foot during the Berlin blockade . The following year the FC became a contract players' club .

From district club to brand

Skull flag

A notable part of the fan scene at Millerntor sees itself expressly as political in comparison to the fan structures of other football clubs. At the beginning of the 1980s, the foundation stone was laid for the transformation of the inner-city district club into a brand. While the squatters slowly developed in the alternative quarters within the left-wing scene , a St. Pauli fan with the nickname "Doc Mabuse", also an alternative and squatter, brought a skull flag tied to a broomstick like her to a home game previously only known from films about pirates. Imitators quickly found themselves on the back straight, and the number of left-wing fans grew. One of the reasons for this were hooligan groups like the lions of city rivals Hamburger SV , which had been infiltrated by right-wing extremists and tried to force leftists out of the curves. On the other hand, the skull , a symbol of “poor versus rich” in the tradition of centuries-old piracy , is still used by fans today, as FC St. Pauli has achieved respectable successes in various leagues and competitions, although it has little financial means Has. The fan scene symbolically expresses the role of the underdog who fights against overpowering, rich clubs. The association's relationship with the motif was consolidated in 2015 through the repurchase of the trademark rights, which made it an official part of the association's marketing. The flag motif is also used outside of the St. Pauli district throughout Germany, in addition to supporting the association, as an expression of political inappropriateness.

With the goalkeeper Volker Ippig an identification figure was found at the end of the 80s. Ippig, the one at this time mohawk wearing, was attributed by Hamburg's sporting press the local punk scene, the nationwide slow in the focus of the mainstream came. However, due to his past as an unskilled worker in left-wing Nicaragua ruled by the Sandinista , as well as his temporary stay in an occupied house on Hafenstrasse, he was popular with the politically active part of the supporters. Another high point in the club's non-football history followed in 1991 when bands like Slime and Die Toten Hosen performed at the “Viva St. Pauli Festival” in the Millerntorstadion and slogans like “Nazis out” and “Germany must die “Chanted; the main purpose of the event was to preserve Hafenstrasse as a cultural space.

In the further course of the 1990s, fan groups stood up for their own interests and those of the local residents, when a new stadium construction project with adjacent development (“Sport Dome”) for President Heinz Weisener - or his architectural office - was to be tackled. This project was finally overturned by several demonstrations and a several-minute protest in silence at a home game.

Another significant event, although not positively received by all fans, occurred at the end of the 2002/03 season when St. Pauli had to relegate to the regional league and fear that they would receive their license. The sale of 140,000 “Rescuer” T-shirts and a charity game against FC Bayern Munich made possible by Uli Hoeneß raised around 2 million euros to save the “cult” club. Under President Corny Littmann , among other things a theater maker and LGBT activist, the club was subsequently able to be consolidated - "without damaging the club's soul" - and even return to the Bundesliga for one season in 2010 .

Later, FC St. Pauli became the first German professional club to include rules against "sexist and racist statements" in its stadium regulations and to integrate the rainbow into its playing attire, captain's armband and fan articles. The publisher of the men's magazine Maxim , the club's premium sponsor from 2001, had to revise his stadium advertisement after violent protests because the fans rated it as "too sexist". The daily newspaper Welt reported that around 2010 the association was able to collect around 11 million followers worldwide and record steadily increasing sales figures for fan articles. This was also helped by the broadcasting of the film “Sankt Pauli! Going out, warming up, chopping away ”, the first ever about a German football club, in 2008. The club also made headlines in the 2010s when it launched the shower gel AntiFa (a play on the terms antifascism and Fa , one.) Together with the drugstore chain Budni Cosmetics brand) on the market and thus raised money for the initiative Laut against Nazis .

The ambivalence of the fan scene, on the other hand, became clear at the first second division city derbies against Hamburger SV in 2018 and 2019, when smaller ultra groups , particularly from Ultrà Sankt Pauli (USP) , repeatedly set off pyrotechnics and were thus exposed to the annoyance of the other fan camps . So a serious commonality with "normal" clubs could be determined. Under pressure from the St. Paulian Ultras, the player Cenk Şahin , who had commented positively on the controversial Turkish military offensive in northern Syria , was released in October 2019.

2001 to 2003 - crash into the regional league and almost bankruptcy

Highlighted in red: relegation to lower league

After the fourth promotion to the Bundesliga , disillusionment quickly followed. The first win of the season could not be celebrated until matchday 10 against Energie Cottbus . At the end of the season they were in last place with only 22 points and had to return to the 2nd Bundesliga after just one year. The only highlight was the 2-1 home win on matchday 21 against the former Champions League winner FC Bayern Munich . The club then made T-shirts with the words “Weltpokalsiegerbesieger” printed on the front and the names of the players on the back. The background to this was that FC Bayern had won the World Cup a few weeks earlier. In the DFB-Pokal they lost in round 1 against SV Darmstadt 98 with 0-1.

After relegation, many top performers such as Thomas Meggle , Zlatan Bajramović and Marcel Rath left the club and could not be adequately replaced. After losing the first two games of the season with 0-4 against Eintracht Frankfurt and 1-4 against LR Ahlen , coach Dietmar Demuth had to take his hat off. His successor was Joachim Philipkowski , who had previously acted as assistant coach. After various other setbacks, Philipkowski was dismissed in December and Franz Gerber succeeded him. The season went on exactly like this, so that at the end of the year they were in 17th place with 31 points, which meant another relegation. In Round 2 of the DFB Cup they lost 0-3 against Werder Bremen .

At the end of this season, the club had a liquidity gap of around € 1.9 million. In order to obtain the license for the regional league and not to be transferred to the top division, the club had to show the DFB a liquidity reserve of € 1.95 million by June 11, 2003. To avoid the descent, two measures were taken. On the one hand, the youth performance center on Brummerskamp was sold to the city of Hamburg for € 720,000 and, on the other hand, the “rescue campaign” was launched. These two actions were guaranteed by HSH Nordbank as of June 11 with € 1.95 million in order to enable the DFB to meet the admission requirements on time. The “Retter Campaign” consisted of the sale of the Retter T-shirts, a charity match against Bayern Munich, donations, the Kiez bar campaign “Saufen für St. Pauli” and cultural events at Millerntor. With the help of the club, fans, sponsors and other helpers, the relegation to the top league could be averted.

After narrowly escaping bankruptcy, they tried a fresh start. A total of 11,700 season tickets were sold before the season, which was a new record for the Regionalliga. Almost the entire team was replaced and trainer Franz Gerber was supposed to form the young team. However, the season did not go according to plan and so in the spring of 2004 they were back in the vicinity of the relegation places. Franz Gerber was then dismissed and Andreas Bergmann became the new coach. At the end of the season, a rather disappointing 8th place came out. In the DFB Cup they were eliminated in the 2nd round against VfB Lübeck .

In June 2004, the threat of forced relegation was prevented by the sale of lifelong season tickets. The entrepreneur Frank Otto gave a guarantee for the income from the season ticket sales and thereby secured the club's license. The second regional league season did not go as expected either. You could sign players like Florian Lechner , Michél Mazingu-Dinzey or Marcel Eger before the season , but these should only become a fixture in the next few years. In the end you were in 7th place with 52 points, with a total of 18 points missing for promotion. Nevertheless, they continued to hold onto coach Andreas Bergmann. In the DFB Cup they lost in the first round against Energie Cottbus .

For the new season, Thomas Meggle from Rostock was brought back to the Millerntor and thus stoked expectations. In the end, they managed to stay in the top third of the table throughout the season, but still only ended the season in 6th place. The season in the DFB Cup was far more enjoyable . There they achieved the best result in the club's history and made it to the semi-finals. On the way there, Wacker Burghausen (3-2 a.d.), VfL Bochum (4-0), Hertha BSC (4-3 a.d.) and SV Werder Bremen (3-1) were beaten. It was only against Bayern Munich that they ended 0-3 at home. This cup season went down in history as the "B-Series", because you only played against opponents who start with the letter B (Burghausen, Bochum, Berlin, Bremen, Bavaria).

Highlighted in green: Promotion to a higher league

Despite the strong cup season last year, the club initially struggled. After 17 match days you were only in 12th place and the connection to the two promotion places threatened to be lost. After the leave of absence of the head coach Andreas Bergmann , Holger Stanislawski and his assistant coach André Trulsen temporarily took over the training management on November 20, 2006. Trulsen had been assistant coach under Bergmann since 2004, Stanislawski also held the position of sporting director. After promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga was indicated in the first season , the contract between the two was provisionally extended until June 30, 2009. Since Stanislawski did not have the required coaching license at the time , Trulsen had to start with the 2007/08 season take over the post - Stanislavsky took over the role of team boss. In the DFB-Pokal they were eliminated in the first round against Bayern Munich with 1-2 after extra time.

On July 13, 2006, the then Hamburg mayor Ole von Beust and club president Corny Littmann announced the plan for a “new” Millerntor . The stadium was to be modernized and expanded gradually to accommodate 27,000 spectators. The first work started in December 2006 and was finally completed by July 2015. Since then, the Millerntor Stadium has held 29,546 spectators.

Before the 2007/08 season, Alexander Ludwig from Dresden and Filip Trojan from Bochum , among others, moved to Hamburg. In addition, Ralph Gunesch returned from Mainz after a year, after having played for St. Pauli for 3 years. The first season after promotion ( 2007/08 ) began with a surprise when the first division club Bayer 04 Leverkusen were beaten 1-0 in the first round of the DFB Cup . In the second round the team lost to the amateurs from SV Werder Bremen 2: 4 on penalties. After the first half of the season, the team was in the league on a 9th place, which they occupied at the end of the season. During the 2007/08 season, trainer Stanislawski took the courses for the B and A license of the DFB coach and was again officially head coach of the club for the 2008/09 season . Helmut Schulte took over the position of sporting director on March 1st, 2008.

For the 2008/09 season , Marius Ebbers , Mathias Hain and Rouwen Hennings joined the club. In addition, the then 18-year-old Junior Hoilett came on loan from the Blackburn Rovers , as well as Dennis Daube from his own youth. The first half of the season was finished in 7th place, in the DFB Cup they were eliminated in the first round against Erzgebirge Aue with 4-5 on penalties. After a mixed second half of the season, the 2nd Bundesliga finished eighth.

The 2009/10 season should be a very successful one. With Filip Trojan , Benjamin Weigelt and Alexander Ludwig, some top performers left the club. With Max Kruse , Matthias Lehmann , Deniz Naki and Markus Thorandt , some promising talented players switched to FC St. Pauli, who should have made a significant contribution to the promotion. With Bastian Oczipka a former U-20 international joined in winter also on loan at 1½ years of Bayer 04 Leverkusen to Hamburg. With this team, St. Pauli was the second best team in the league both in the first half of the season and in the second half of the season. It rose again to the 1st Bundesliga after 2001 . After being 0-1 behind at break against Greuther Fürth on the penultimate match day , the game turned in the second half and secured second place with a 4-1 win. Marius Ebbers also finished second with 20 goals the goalscorer list. In the DFB Cup , they beat FC 08 Villingen in the first round , then failed 2-1 away at the first division club Werder Bremen .

The 2010/11 Bundesliga season was less positive. Before the season one strengthened with the ex-national player Gerald Asamoah , Fin Bartels , Carlos Zambrano and Thomas Kessler . The season started with a 3-1 away win at SC Freiburg . On September 19, 2010 the Hamburg city derby took place for the first time in eight years . While they had separated 1: 1 in the first leg at Millerntor, St. Pauli managed the surprise in the second leg in the Volksparkstadion : After a corner kick, Gerald Asamoah headed the ball in the 59th minute to make it 0-1. This was the first derby win for St. Pauli since 1977. Although the club was still in 15th place after the end of the first half of the season, the team was relegated from bottom of the table at the end of the season.

In the first round of the DFB-Pokal , Chemnitzer FC lost just 1-0 . In addition, there were signs of upheaval, as Holger Stanislawski announced on April 13, 2011 that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season for Hoffenheim .

After Holger Stanislawski announced his resignation before the end of the season, a suitable successor was sought. Ultimately, the decision was made for André Schubert , who had previously worked as a coach for SC Paderborn 07 for two years . In addition to Stanislawski, assistant coaches André Trulsen , Florian Lechner and Matthias Lehmann also left the club for the new 2011/12 season . The loaned players Bastian Oczipka and Thomas Kessler returned to their teams, Mathias Hain ended his career and took over the post of goalkeeping coach. As newcomers were among other Philipp Tschauner , Sebastian Schachten , Mahir Sağlık and Kevin Schindler obliged Patrick Funk and Lasse Sobiech were borrowed. After the rounds there and back, they ended up in fourth place and thus just missed the immediate promotion. Equal on points with Fortuna Düsseldorf , the goal difference was decisive in the end. In the DFB Cup , they were eliminated again in the first round, this time against the then fourth division club Eintracht Trier . Ralph Gunesch , who had played for St Pauli for almost eight years, left the brown-whites for Ingolstadt during the winter break .

Before the 2012/13 season , you had to accept various departures. The players Max Kruse , Deniz Naki , Fabio Morena and Moritz Volz left the club and the loaned Lasse Sobiech and Philipp Heerwagen also returned to their clubs. The Kiezkicker responded with the commitments of Sören Gonther , Christopher Buchtmann , Florian Kringe and Lennart Thy . In addition, the striker and U-national player Daniel Ginczek was loaned from VfB Stuttgart . There was also a new sports director in Rachid Azzouzi . After the club could only get six points from the first seven games, André Schubert was released on September 26, 2012. He was succeeded by Michael Frontzeck , who was officially introduced a short time later on October 3rd. With him, the team managed to stay in the league and ended up in 10th place. Daniel Ginczek scored 18 times in the season and landed with one less goal than Domi Kumbela from Braunschweig, second on the scorers list. In the DFB Cup , the club survived the first round against Offenburg FV , in round 2 they lost 3-0 at first division club VfB Stuttgart.

For the 2013/14 season , the squad was again fundamentally changed. To strengthen came Christopher Nothe , John Verhoek , Bernd Nehrig , Marc Rzatkowski , Phillipp Ziereis , Sebastian Maier and Marcel Halstenberg while Florian Bruns , Benedict Pliquett and Daniel Ginczek left the club. After a strong first half of the season they were in fourth place, but coach Michael Frontzeck was still on leave on November 6, 2013, because he and the club management had different ideas about the timing of his contract extension. The assistant coach Roland Vrabec , who was newly signed up for the season, was initially only supposed to take over the team management temporarily, but after four wins from the first six games he got a contract until June 30, 2015. In the meantime, they were within reach of 3rd place and dreamed of a possible relegation game against city rivals Hamburger SV . After a poor season final sprint, the team reached the end only place 8. In particular, the weakness home with just five wins at the Millerntor had helped; In the away table, however, the team took third place. In the DFB Cup , as in most years before, they were eliminated again in the first round. Opponent was the then third division Prussia Münster .

After starting the 2014/15 season with only 4 points from the first 4 games , head coach Roland Vrabec was on leave on September 3, 2014, and sports director Rachid Azzouzi was also released. Thomas Meggle , who was previously part of the coaching team , initially took over as interim coach until Ewald Lienen was introduced as the new coach of FC St. Pauli on December 16, 2014. Meggle has been appointed sports director.

With Ewald Lienen , who took over the team on a relegation place, the club reached 15th place and thus secured relegation. In the DFB Cup they prevailed against FSV Optik Rathenow , then failed at home in the second round with 0: 3 to Borussia Dortmund .

The 2015/16 season should be more successful again. Unlike in previous years, the core of the team stayed together, it was only strengthened selectively. Among other things, Ryō Miyaichi from Arsenal London and Jeremy Dudziak and Marc Hornschuh from Borussia Dortmund were committed. Miyaichi was badly injured in preparation and missed almost the entire season. With Philipp Tschauner and Marcel Halstenberg , two top performers left the club. Halstenberg was sold to RB Leipzig for around 3 million euros , which is a record transfer for the St. Pauli. The club got off to a strong start in the new season and was fourth after the first half of the season. This position was defended until the end, 12 points behind the relegation place. In the first round of the DFB-Pokal they were eliminated 1: 4 against Borussia Mönchengladbach .

In the third season under Lienen, St. Pauli initially had a harder time. Before the season, Enis Alushi , Marc Rzatkowski , Lennart Thy and John Verhoek left the team, they were replaced by Christopher Avevor , Aziz Bouhaddouz , Cenk Şahin , Mats Møller Dæhli and Johannes Flum . After the first half of the season they were in last place in the table with only 11 points. Despite increased criticism, the club's management stuck to Ewald Lienen, which was hugely popular with fans, and the team achieved an enormous increase in performance; with the best second half of the club's history - 34 points and 28:11 goals - the season ended in 7th place. In the first round of the DFB-Pokal they met VfB Lübeck , who beat them 3-0 away. In the second round, they lost 2-0 at home against Bundesliga club Hertha BSC .

Shortly after the end of the season, the club announced that Ewald Lienen would take over the newly created position of technical director. His contract was also extended until June 30, 2021. The previous co-trainer Olaf Janßen was promoted to the new trainer for the 2017/18 season . In the summer transfer period, Sören Gonther and Lennart Thy, only two regular players left the team. Clemens Schoppenhauer , Luca Zander and Sami Allagui , experienced in the first division, were presented as newcomers . Dimitris Diamantakos and Thibaud Verlinden also joined the team in winter . On December 7th, Olaf Janßen had to vacate the coaching post after seven games without a win - most recently two defeats away 4-0 at SpVgg Greuther Fürth and 5-0 at Arminia Bielefeld . The second division experienced Markus Kauczinski took over the team in 14th place for the 17th matchday. On the 33rd matchday they could provisionally secure their relegation and ended the season in 12th place. In the DFB Cup , they lost 2-1 to SC Paderborn in the first round .

Also in the DFB-Pokal 2018/19 the first round was over, the team failed after extra time at the third division club SV Wehen Wiesbaden with 2-3. During the summer break, the team was reinforced with Mats Møller Dæhli , who had already been on loan from SC Freiburg the year before and who for the most part showed strong performances. Also met Henk Veerman from SC Heerenveen , and Marvin Knoll from Jahn Regensburg added to the team. Various youth players also received professional contracts, including the U19 national player Finn Ole Becker . After a good first half of the season they were on a good 4th place. Since Henk Veerman tore a cruciate ligament at the end of December, the club signed the clubless Alex Meier for the winter break. The now 35-year-old had already played for the brown-whites in the 2002/03 season. After a 0-4 home in the city derby against HSV , things went downhill, so that the club parted ways with Markus Kauczinski on matchday 28, after four games without a win . Jos Luhukay was signed as the new coach . In the last few games, the performances were rather mixed, so that the 2018/19 season ended in 9th place.

For the season season 2019/20 certain players were hired. U21 international Viktor Gyökeres , Leo Østigård (both from Brighton & Hove Albion ), James Lawrence from RSC Anderlecht and Matt Penney from Sheffield Wednesday joined the club. They had to part with Jeremy Dudziak, who left the club for HSV , and Richard Neudecker and Sami Allagui . After finishing the first half of the season on a sobering 15th place, Mats Møller Dæhli also left the club for a record sum of 2.5 million euros and moved to KRC Genk . The second half of the season, initially interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic , was rather mixed. It was not until the penultimate matchday that they were able to stay up and ended the season in 14th place. The two games against HSV ( Hamburg City Derby ) were won 2-0 each. In the DFB-Pokal they were able to prevail in the first round against VfB Lübeck , but then lost against Eintracht Frankfurt at home with 1-2.

At the end of the 2019/20 season, the club and Luhukay parted ways by mutual agreement. On July 12th it was announced that Timo Schultz will take over the coaching position for the new season . Schultz previously worked in the club's youth department for years.

In July 2017, FC St. Pauli was the first German professional club to enter into a long-term cooperation with an English Premier League club. The cooperation with Stoke City extends to the areas of sport (coaching, promoting young talent, scouting), marketing, merchandising and media. The cooperation was ended jointly in October 2019.

League affiliation

From the end of January 1910, the first point games were played, and the club initially commuted within the Hamburg leagues, as there were no national leagues until 1933 (with the exception of the 1913/14 season, in which the NFV Association League was introduced). In 1919 they were promoted to the Hamburg A-Class, the highest Hamburg league - so the club was "first class" for the first time.

In 1934/35, 1936–1940 and 1942–1945, FC St. Pauli played in the newly founded first-class Gauliga Nordmark and from 1942 until the end of the war in the Gauliga Hamburg . After the war, FC first played in the (first-class) Hamburg city league and from its founding in 1947 until its dissolution in 1963 belonged to the Oberliga Nord, which was also the top division.

When the Bundesliga started playing in 1963, St. Pauli played in the second-rate Regionalliga Nord until it was dissolved in 1974. Since then, the club has played predominantly in the 2nd Bundesliga, eight years in the Bundesliga and also third-rate for a few years.

The aid project Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli

Political and social commitment can not only be observed within the fan scene: since the spring of 2005, the then player of the club Benjamin Adrion has been involved in an aid project called Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli, jointly supported by the club and the German World Hunger Aid, to secure the drinking water supply at around 100 kindergartens in Havana ( Cuba ). After Cuba, the initiative got involved in numerous other countries, especially in East Africa.

Awareness of the club

A study by the sports marketer UFA Sports , which also looks after FC St. Pauli, identified eleven million St. Pauli sympathizers across Germany. FC St. Pauli also has an excellent reputation abroad, for example in France .

This interest is also expressed in the number of spectators at home and away games: In the 2003/04 season, St. Pauli, as a regional division, had a higher average than any second division club, with 17,374 spectators, and surpassed several first division clubs with 11,700 season tickets (VfL Wolfsburg 7,500, VfL Bochum 6,000 , Hansa Rostock 4,550).

For the 2010/11 season, Panini brought out a scrapbook for the first time in the name of FC St. Pauli as the third Bundesliga club (alongside FC Bayern Munich and VfB Stuttgart ). In addition to the portraits of all players and coaches, the album contained u. a. the history of the club, the various facets of the fan scene and the district.

"World Cup Winner"

On February 6, 2002, FC St. Pauli surprisingly won 2-1, bottom of the table in the 1st Bundesliga, against FC Bayern Munich in the Millerntor Stadium, whereupon FC St. Pauli t-shirts with the imprint "World Cup winner" on the front and the names of the players on the back. The background to this was that FC Bayern had won the World Cup a few weeks earlier . The goal scorers for St. Pauli were Nico Patschinski and Thomas Meggle . It was only in the 87th minute that Willy Sagnol was able to reduce Bayern to 1: 2.

The rescue campaign

After relegation from the 2nd Bundesliga at the end of the 2002/03 season, the club threatened to relegate another league deeper to the Oberliga Nord, because at the end of the season there was a liquidity gap of 1.95 million euros, which was also the decisive factor Licensing requirement of the DFB in the admission procedure for the regional league. Through several nationwide sensational donation campaigns, the association managed to raise 2.367 million euros between the beginning of June and the end of August. The HSH Nordbank said earlier on June 11, 2003, a guarantee for the required 1.95 million euros, and assured the club so that the license for the Regionalliga Nord.

Some examples of the actions carried out, all of which had the motto "Save FC St. Pauli":

  • Sale of 102,948 "Rescuer" T-shirts (net proceeds: 896,830 euros)
  • Sale of the youth training center on Brummerskamp to the city of Hamburg for 720,000 euros
  • a benefit game under the motto "World Cup winner versus World Cup winner" against FC Bayern Munich, who waived fee and reimbursement, in the Millerntor Stadium (271,112 euros)
  • Cash donations of around 200,000 euros
  • Beer campaigns " Drink Astra - Save St. Pauli" (1 euro per Astra box, around 120,000 euros) and "Drink for St. Pauli" (50 cents solo surcharge per beer at participating pubs, around 50,000 euros)
  • Cultural events held in the Millerntor Stadium: jazz festival , DJ soundclash , three open-air cinema evenings, "final rescue concert"
  • Sale of 11,700 season tickets for the coming season

Structures in the fan scene

A notable part of the fan scene at Millerntor sees itself expressly as political in comparison to the fan structures of other football clubs. The fan group Pro Fans is also very active in the St. Pauli area in its work against stadium bans . Another political focus is the active intervention against sexist or racist statements in the stadium: St. Pauli was the first club to include such bans in its stadium regulations - today it is more the rule that corresponding passages can be found in the stadium regulations of the Bundesliga clubs.

Official fan flag of FC St. Pauli

In 2009 the Italian ska-combat-folk-punk band Talco from Marghera wrote the song "St Pauli". Since then, the song has often been used as an anthem and the band has already played a few concerts in the Millerntorstadion.

The association has 514 officially registered fan clubs (as of December 2017), which have created their own representative body with the fan club spokesman's council, which is now also heard by the club's executive committee on fundamental questions. The central facility for both organized and individual fans is the St. Pauli fan shop, which emerged from a fan initiative . There is a particularly close collaboration with the fan clubs of the Scottish Premier League club Celtic Glasgow .

The St. Pauli fans also organize the Antira tournament , an invitation tournament for anti-racist fan groups that previously takes place annually, now every two years (alternating with other venues) on the St. Pauli training grounds. Fans and the club also got involved in the political struggle for the Lampedusa group in Hamburg and helped set up the FC Lampedusa football club .

The association also launched the Kiezhelden initiative . The platform supports social and cultural projects in the “Kiez” as well as young athletes.


The traditional main rival of the St. Paulians is Hamburger SV (HSV). In a duel with the "Red Pants", it is determined who is currently "No. 1" in the city. Different league affiliations in the past had made the Hamburg derby less frequent. In 2018 HSV was relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time, so there were two city derbies in the 2nd Bundesliga for the first time in the 2018/19 season . Since March 13, 1993, when there were serious riots between right-wing Rostockers and politically left - wing St. Pauli supporters around the meeting at Hansa Rostock in view of the politically motivated riots in Rostock-Lichtenhagen , the relationship has also been valid the Mecklenburgers as enemies; Encounters between both teams are therefore always classified as a risk game . In particular, various recent incidents also justify a pronounced antipathy towards VfB Lübeck , which in turn is close to HSV.

Other departments

Supporting Members Department

The Supporting Members Department (AFM) is a non-sporting department whose members are committed to promoting the youth departments (with a focus on the youth soccer performance area) of the club. With currently more than 13,500 members, it is quantitatively the strongest department of the association.

Together with the executive committee and the sporting management, concepts are developed that can represent an opportunity for FC St. Pauli to compete with the financially strong top clubs in the long term. These concepts are financed proportionally by AFM and the professional department.

Current AFM projects include the “AFM Radio”, which originally developed from a game description for the visually impaired at Millerntor and now offers free live reports of all the first team's games via internet stream, the AFM training exchange “You'll never work alone ”, which, in cooperation with companies and the employment agency, arranges apprenticeships for young players in order to bind them to the club. Furthermore, the AFM maintains the youth talent house in which up to six young players live in a shared apartment.

In addition, AFM members have some very specific advantages. In addition to the reductions and discounts on fan articles, which also apply to members of the other departments, there is a special AFM discount for trips away from home organized by the St. Pauli fan shop. Even at home games of the U23 team and when taking part in stadium tours, the entrance fee for AFM members is reduced.

Medial discussion

Feature films

In 1993 the North German Broadcasting Corporation (NDR) produced the feature film game of fate under the direction of Bernd Schadewald . The television film tells a tragic love story with parallels to Romeo and Juliet against the background of the fan rivalry between FC St. Pauli and Hansa Rostock . The first showed the film, which includes Benno Fürmann and Jürgen Vogel , for the first time on August 31, 2004.

In 2011, the director Tarek Ehlail shot the low-budget film Gegengerade - 20359 St. Pauli , the action of which takes place in the vicinity of the association and the district and addresses topics such as counterculture and gentrification.

In the Tatort television series from Münster , which has been produced since 2002 , the character Frank Thiel embodies a Hamburg-based commissioner who grew up in St. Pauli and is a passionate fan of the district association and prefers to wear its fan collection.


The club and its active fan scene have also repeatedly been the subject of documentaries . The company "01film" produced a 92-minute documentary with the name We were relegated number 1 under the direction of Michael Müller for the promotion season 2000/01 with significant help from the fan shop . The directors Julia Föhn and Dirk Laabs also shot a documentary about the 2001/02 relegation season immediately afterwards with the title Somewhere down there .

In the documentary Sankt Pauli!

In 2011 the Hamburg documentary filmmaker Felix Grimm shot the film The Whole Stadium , which instead of scenes from the game shows the fans in the stands . The course of the game can only be determined from the comments and reactions of the fans to the game.

Sports television

According to Marco Carini in the taz , the “nationwide hype” of the club is based on “a change in sports reporting”. At the beginning of the Bundesliga season 1988/89 , the “football show” kicked off by the private broadcaster RTL plus went on air and was in direct competition with the sports show with its informational concept of producing “short match reports purely related to sporting events”. According to the former RTL sports director and presenter Ulli Potofski , “the coverage of the trappings of a game was bigger and more extensive” and FC St. Pauli and its unconventional fans “became a splash of color” in the reporting: “While we were looking for curiosities at other clubs and we had to laboriously look for bizarre things, this occurred in the Hamburg Kiez. ”Private television broadcast a picture of FC St. Pauli using catchy labels and slogans, which were mostly a media invention. According to Stefan Reinke in the online magazine DerWesten , the Hamburg club was "lucky for the Tutti-Frutti channel: FC St. Pauli was playing in the Bundesliga at the time, and so RTL could have its dirty image and football Linking the show. It was just the time when TV Germany tried out. Sex consultant and bed problem solver Erika Berger found her way onto the soccer show, as did St. Pauli's whore icon Domenica . What did that have to do with soccer? Little. ”In an interview, the author and chronicler Christoph Nagel describes the exaggerated portrayal of“ fans celebrating forever ”and slogans such as“ joy house of the league ”as a pure cliché and states that the largely meaningless word“ cult ”is“ meanwhile on the Index landed ".


In Tim Jürgens' opinion, the association is characterized by "the arrest of the district, the pure feeling for football, the historic and very sensitively modernized venue, the basic feeling of being an outsider who cheats the established from time to time". The association's canon of values ​​includes “solidarity, democracy, sustainability and the equality of all ways of thinking and living”. Kilian Trotoir wrote in Die Zeit : “No other professional club fulfills the longings and demands of our time as well as FC St. Pauli. After all, what criteria should an ideal football club meet today? The association would have to be democratic, i.e. take its members seriously and not the welfare of a few investors. It would have to be political, that is, be interested in what is happening in the world. It would have to be anchored locally, i.e. give its district an identity. He would have to stick together, so shouldn't recklessly align everything to the sporting success of the professional team. FC St. Pauli is such a club. "

“The Schnurre contains all the ingredients that have given the Kiezklub a special position in professional football: friendship and empathy, solidarity and closeness, humor and chaos. It also testifies to the fine line between triumph and suffering, which St. Pauli and his followers have fused into a community of values ​​over the years and which have ensured that the club now embodies a lifestyle that many identify with. The core of philosophy is something that society seems to be increasingly missing: the constant question of whether one deals with one's fellow human beings properly. That makes FC St. Pauli a home for many, which is about much more than football. FC St. Pauli is the alternative to conservatism, to the establishment. "

- Tim Jürgens, Philipp Köster : 11 friends

“From a distance, St Pauli must indeed seem cool to anyone who sees football as more than just a game. The club says the right things, does the right things, and wears the right clothes. It's a welcome antidote for people who have become disillusioned with the greed, the hype, and the emptiness of modern football, and the perfect alternative for those who find following a big, rich and successful club like Bayern Munich too easy, too slick. "
