St. Pauli Glasgow Supporters’ Club Raise Money to Take 20 Refugee Children to Match

St. Pauli Glasgow Supporters’ Club Raise Money to Take 20 Refugee Children to Match

One St. Pauli supporters’ club in Glasgow raised enough money to take 20 refugee children to a Bundesliga 2 match at the weekend, as part of their ‘More Than Football’ initiative.

As the club tweeted from their official Twitter account, the children were inside the Millerntor-Stadion for Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Hannover 96,along with 5 supervising adults, after around £300 was raised via their official Crowdfunding page.

The group are now looking to raise another £300 from scratch once again to repeat the feat, this time aiming to reach refugee fans living in the Hamburg area of Germany.

Of course, St. Pauli have always enjoyed a close bond with Celtic and the Celtic support, and this campaign mirrors the efforts of Hoops’ fans who raised an astonishing amount to help refugees in need of support in Palestine earlier this season.

If you wish to donate to the cause, you can do so here.

What do you think of the efforts?
