Another cliché: Sankt Pauli – The Sex Pistols of the German football league

There are many stereotypes warmed up for St. Pauli’s Promotion and 100th aniversary, but this one is extraordinary 😉

„People didn’t just come for the match now, they came for the party. Drinking beer and smoking are still allowed in the stands, a rarity in modern football. The raucous atmosphere is no surprise given the locals’ immersion in pop and rock culture – The Beatles resided in St Pauli for a few years in the early 1960s. The team even run out to ‘Hell’s Bells’ by AC/DC, and every St Pauli goal is celebrated by a rendition of Blur’s ‘Song 2’.“
