The FC St. Pauli It is a very special club. In fact, You can say it is one of the most peculiar of the world. Among the many things that make it special to this club located in the German district of the same name City Hamburg, we will highlight some more typical of football rather than the current.

Shirt St. Pauli
The German team is one of the few (specific 6) who wears brown shirt. There are two versions about the reason for this choice and both make clear the humble origins of the club that still today remain intact. On the one hand the fact that the cloth of that color was cheaper. For another, it looks like, workers in this neighborhood (in your dockers most of the port or warehouse porters) They used to use brown monkeys. Some of the first players of the team came directly from their work to training. This story reminds us that we discussed in the article on the color azulón Getafe CF.
Of course, another feature in which always emphasized the St. Pauli is its defense of social rights and support for minorities. This is reinforced by the vast majority of fans of the team Hamburg are close ideologically to the left.
