It's been a great year for the East River Pirates! Our Boys in Brown stayed in the 2. Bundesliga! We took our first trip to the Millerntor at a fanclub! And we got to welcome FC St. Pauli to our home shores in May to make a strong case for community-supported footballeverywhere with two fantastic games in Detroit and Portland!
With the help of all our visitors, we raised more than $1500 for the Immigrant Defense Project, as well as making contributions to Puerto Rico flood relief efforts, and victims of the Charlottesville attack last fall. Thank you to everyone who visited us this season and tossed a few bucks in our donation can.
Next year the fun an excitement just keeps on coming! It's our 10th Anniversary as a fan club (more or less) and we're gearing up for a big shindig in November. There will be music! There will be food! There may be new scarves? You're all invited! Mark your calendars now! We'll schedule an exact date after the fixture list is announced.
Stay in touch with us on social media this summer by joining our Facebook group, or following us on Twitter (@fcstpaulinyc) or Instagram (@eastriverpirates) and join us for a World Cup match or two!
Then we'll see you in August for our annual season opener BBQ.
Have a great summer! And we'll see you back here for the 2018-2019 season!
With love and Knob,
The East River Pirates
FC St. Pauli NYC (aka The East River Pirates) supporters club was non-established in 2008 for the purpose of supporting FCSP in New York City. We seek to provide a home-away-from-home for FCSP fans. We watch FCSP matches tape-delayed in convivial camaraderie while upholding the proud St. Pauli tradition of standing firmly against racism, sexism, homophobia, and fascism.
Our 5-point platform involves the charitable support of Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli, pursuit of the perfect playlist of songs about FCSP, continuation of the Celtic FC/FCSP fan-friendship
in New York and abroad, organization of trips to the Millerntor, and the emphatic declaration that "New York ist Braun-weiss."
Watching a FCSP Match at East River Bar
Our FC St. Pauli match viewings are tape-delayed on match days at The East River Bar (ERB) located at 97 South 6th Street between Bedford Avenue and Berry Streets in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (see map below). ERB has beer specials on match days and is cash only.
How to get there:
BY SUBWAY: Take the L train to Bedford Avenue or the J/M/Z to Marcy Avenue,
ERB is a short walk away from each stop.
Click here for directions that you can customize from your starting point.
Our match viewing parties are completely free of charge. Since The East River Bar is our host, it’s customary to patronize the bar and tip the bartender. We also collect optional donations in support of Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli (VcA) or local charitable causes.
