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.
THIS YEAR’S MEMBERSHIP.
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 want Yorkshire St. Pauli not only to mirror the support of the football team, but the support of the community as well.
That is why this year we will continue our strong links with PAFRAS and LAFN. Membership fees raised will be split between the two, having covered fanclub running costs.
Please note that being a fanclub member does not entitle you to tickets. Please also note that all our members must agree with and adhere to our Constitution. Please read it here: https://yorkshirestpauli.com/constitution/
COST OF MEMBERSHIP.
People who are waged – minimum donation £5.
People who are unwaged – pay what you can afford.
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 go to our Social Fund which helps run our Football For All projects.
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 email@example.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 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.
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 – 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:
Finally, £2 will go to LAFN to help support their activities.
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.
