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. ERB has beer specials on match days and is cash only


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.   




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. Map is below with the closest subway stops marked.
