TBG Yorkshire St Pauli t-shirts

St Pauli Fans Gegen Rechts stickerFC ST PAULI first came to light for me whilst at art college in the mid 1990s. The Hamburg-based football club’s anti-fascism Gegen Rechts! sticker shared a double page spread with the Leeds United anti-racism fanzine, Marching Altogether in Liz McQuiston’s definitive work on protest design, Graphic Agitation, a book which still sits faithfully on my desk to this day.

With a decidedly alternative fan scene with social inclusion at its very core, St Pauli are the archetypal kultverein (cult club). So it was no surprise to learn on my trips to see another, Austria Salzburg, that my genial hosts at Fanclub Absolut were frequent visitors to the Millerntor, the German club’s home near the famous Reeperbahn.

I was intrigued to discover a year or so ago that St Pauli had a growing official supporters club in Leeds. I thought they’d make for an interesting collaboration on something or other, and so it proved with this brand new pair of YSP v TBG t-shirts. You can buy them from the Yorkshire St Pauli Shop and read more from me about the designs on the Yorkshire St Pauli website.

  1. Hi,
    I love St Pauli gear and bought some stuff when I was in Hamburg last year. It would be great if you could produce a t-shirt with the Yorkshire rose/cross bones design. Any chance? I’ve often thought that LUFC fans would have a lot in common with St Pauli; I’m sure any collaboration would be most welcome.

  2. Good idea, Dave. I’ll tell the YSP lot about your suggestion and see what they say. They’ve certainly done badges bearing that very design.

  3. I am a member of two clubs. Leeds United member and the St Pauli Golf Club. That’s all you need.

Have your say...
