Team of the day: FC St. Pauli (Germany)

St. Pauli is a German sports club based in Hamburg. the Team has enjoyed modest success on the field as they have spent the majority of their existence playing in the lower leagues of the German Football Federation. the club is widely recognised for its unique culture and has a large popular following as one of the country's "Kult" clubs. they could be called Germany's Punk club and quite frankly they are probably one of the few if not the only punk club in the world as evidenced by their "skull and crossbones" logo. they publicly oppose to racism and facism.in addition, they are pro-gay rights as their owner is gay. it is said that a great deal of their supporters are of left-wing ideals. however, it is also clear that no all of fc st. pauli's fans embrace those ideals.   like i mentioned before on the pitch they have not been very successful. however, they have played on the German Bundesliga, the top tier of German football, and have advanced as far as the quarterfinals of the annual German cup on at least one occasion. i have seen a couple of their matches and liked their physical style of play. muscicians such as alex rosamilia from the gaslight anthem and Georg Holm, bassist of Sigur Rós can be counted amonst the loyal followers of this interesting german club.  if you are interested to know more about them,  visit their website: FC ST.PAULI WEBPAGE
