Tickets : Key Details

Today the club have released various bits of information regarding tickets, which will be more important than usual for the next season due to the rebuilding of the North Stand which will reduce the capacity and make tickets very limited. Our website will be updated in the coming days with all the information, but here are the main details:

Home matches

After the first home game of the season against Ingolstadt, the plan is to go ahead with the rebuilding of the North Stand as long as all formalities are completed. This will reduce the capacity (YSP approximate capacity of Nordkurve is 5000) with season ticket holders for the North Stand being moved – with seated season ticket holders being moved to the Haupttribune and standing season ticket holders moved into the Gegengerade. The club does not have an exact date for when the rebuilding of the North Stand will be completed, except for saying they hope it is “as soon as possible”.

Tickets for the game v Ingolstadt will go on sale to members on 7th July, and remaining tickets will go on sale to others from 9th July. For games after Ingolstadt, the club will announce ticket details in due course.

Away games

Before, away tickets were either received through the Fanladen or via the away ticket centre via email. The process for the Fanladen will be the same, but the away ticket centre process has changed. Depending on the capacity of each stadium, the allocation we receive and the date of the fixture, the club will assess the likelihood of the game selling out. If we have a large capacity and they anticipate that they can meet demand for tickets, an online store will be opened and tickets processed through the online store rather than via email. This will be the case for the Aalen game, and tickets can be ordered online from 4th July.

However, for game with a high demand or small capacity, ticket requests will still be sent in writing or via email for foreign supporters. Previously, these orders were processed chronologically, however the club is now looking at alternative methods – for example a lottery, a points system or equivalent. This is not decided yet. Details for each game and the process for applying for tickets will be detailed on the website and fixture list.

Yorkshire St. Pauli membership – now available.

A BRIEF BACKGROUND…

Yorkshire St. Pauli was established in May 2011, with the idea to get a group of like-minded St. Pauli fans together to watch games. Three years on and the group has grown beyond our wildest expectations. We meet every few weeks in Leeds to watch matches, we are involved in charity work with local refugee charity PAFRAS and we organise several trips over per season to watch the boys in brown.

THIS YEAR’S MEMBERSHIP.

Last season we decided as a group that we wanted to do something more. St. Pauli is a great club with a community conscience that is both aware of and provides assistance to those who need it, both in St. Pauli and beyond.St. Pauli has a broad awareness of political issues, and there are many projects run both officially by the club and also by the various fan groups of St. Pauli. We wanted Yorkshire St. Pauli not only to mirror the support of the football team, but the support of the community as well.

Please note that all our members must agree with and adhere to our Constitution. Please read it here: http://yorkshirestpauli.com/constitution/

COST OF MEMBERSHIP.

People who are waged - minimum donation £5.

People who are unwaged - minimum donation £3.

Please note – this is a minimum donation and we would be grateful for any additional money donate if you can afford to do so. Any additional donations will be split between the Social Fund collection and PAFRAS donation as explained below.

HOW TO JOIN.

Membership is available now, and you can renew your membership or become a new member by simply sending us your membership fee (see above for prices).

Membership can be paid either in person during one of our meetings, or via PayPal to our email address info@yorkshirestpauli.com

Please note - If you pay via PayPal, please pay the PayPal fees, otherwise we will incur a charge from PayPal for your payment which then means we won’t receive the full membership fee. PayPal should give you the option when sending the payment to say that you are sending it to “friends or family” and to pay any transaction fee. If you are paying from abroad and do not have this option, please pay an extra £1 and this will cover the PayPal fees.

If you do not use PayPal, you can also pay by bank transfer. Please email us on info@yorkshirestpauli.com for further details.

Membership fees are not obligatory, everyone is welcome to watch the games with us, but if you can afford to become a member to help with the running costs that would be great. If you have any questions about membership, please contact us via email at memberships@yorkshirestpauli.com. We are also on various websites/social networking sites, the details of which can be found in the “contact us” section.

HOW THE MEMBERSHIP FEE IS USED.

This is the breakdown of how each membership payment is used…

£1 - £1 from each membership fee will go to the fanclub, and will be used cover costs of running the fanclub – such as our official fanclub registration with the club, the administration of our website and subscribing to St Pauli TV which allows us to show delayed streams of games.

£2 (and 50% of any additional donations above the minimum membership fee) will go to PAFRAS - Positive Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers. PAFRAS works with asy­lum seek­ers, refugees and local com­mu­ni­ties in Leeds and the sur­round­ing area, providing a range of services such as food, hot meals and vital help and advice to those who need it. You can find more information on PAFRAS on their website, below:

http://www.pafras.org.uk/about/background/

Finally, £2 (and 50% of any additional donations above the minimum membership fee) will go to the Yorkshire St. Pauli Social Fund, which we recently voted to establish. The scope of the Social Fund is wide reaching, but the principal is to help run social activities and events for the benefit of people outside of our membership and the fund will be used to subsidise such events for the benefits of those individuals, not the benefits of our members.  An example would be the weekly ‘Football For All’ football matches that are organised through Yorkshire St. Pauli, where refugees and asylum seekers are invited to play for free. The cost of subsiding this for the benefit of those individuals would be covered through the Social Fund.

We are aware that some people do not wish to donate to charity for various reasons, therefore if this is the case please let us know when you pay your membership and instead we will donate the £4 from your membership fee to the 1910 Museum – a project to build a museum at the Millerntor.

DO I HAVE TO BE FROM YORKSHIRE AND COME TO WATCH GAMES WITH YOU?

Not at all! Our membership is open to everyone, wherever you are in the world.  All that we ask is that you adhere to the Constitution (see here).

Members will be kept updated via email as part of our mailing list for members, and each member has an equal vote in all membership matters.
