From the publisher:
Great guys, creative fans and a world-famous stadium: Everything young readers want to know about FC St. Pauli
FC St. Pauli owes its popularity above all to its special types on and next to the pitch as well as a creative fan scene that is repeatedly politically active, e.g. against racism and sexism. In addition, the fans made a major contribution to the successful rescue campaign in 2003 when the club was threatened with insolvency. This mixture of distinctive minds and a lively fan culture makes FC St. Pauli so attractive not only in Hamburg for children and young people. This richly illustrated book is for them.
In a varied way, the author tells not only about sporting successes and tragedies, but also about the legendary stadium at Millerntor, the unique fans and hot derbies against HSV. From Walter Frosch to Volker Ippig to Fabian Boll, the greatest stars of all eras will also be presented. Legendary coaches and presidents such as Holger Stanislawski and Corny Littmann are also portrayed. Small anecdotes and funny sayings also provide variety.
René Martens, born in 1964, works as a freelance journalist and sports book author in Hamburg. So far, he has published “Miracles occur again and again” at Die Werkstatt. The history of FC St. Pauli ”and“ Nobody wins at Millerntor. The history of the legendary St. Pauli Stadium ”. He is - together with the team of the online media column "Altpapier" - winner of the Bert Donnepp Prize 2012 (German Prize for Media Journalism).
