St Pauli - Further match details and social programme

Around 3,500 tickets have already been sold for the game with lots more expected to go tomorrow and on the day of the game as the club step up the pre-match publicity.

The North Stand, which is normally reserved for away fans, will not be open. A section of the East Stand (Gegengerade) at the northern end of the ground will be reserved for FC fans. There will be no segregation, however. This section is merely a place where FC fans can gather and "do their stuff". Behind the East Stand, towards the North Stand end, there will be a small wooden hut where FC fans can buy their match tickets (standing or seats). Fans are also encouraged to pick up tickets on Friday if they’re already in town.

On Friday evening there will be a party and concert with 4 live bands at the Knust (Feldstrasse/Neuer Kamp, right behind the North Stand) to mark the launch of the centenary CD box (100 songs for 100 years), which FC fans are welcome to attend.

There will be another party there on Saturday night with a concert/DJs, etc. as part of the anti-racism tournament.

After the match supporters and players alike can have a drink at the St Pauli clubhouse.

FC United are aware this information might be a little late for supporters who have travelled early. If you have mates out there already, please try to pass on these details, thanks.

St Pauli v FC United of Manchester, Saturday 15th May 2010, kick off 6pm.

The game is to be played at the Millerntor Stadium, on the Holy Spirit Field, 20359 Hamburg.

Tickets

St Pauli will hold back a contingent of tickets for FC United supporters in a designated section of the ground. These tickets can be purchased on the day of the game and prices are as follows:

Standing: €7 (€5 concessions)
Seats: €13 (€10 concessions)

Match Day

The match will kick off at 6pm. The half-time break will be a little longer than usual to allow the final of St Pauli’s anti-racism tournament to take place in the stadium.

The St Pauli team will include a couple of the club’s current players, one or two second division players and their manager plus a variety of top former players, some of whom have only just retired. Some go back to the 1970s but we are told they are still very fit.
