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."
