FC St.Pauli "Chapel"

Once you have stood in the St.Pauli stand, surrounded by waving colours, chanting with others, you know the deal: this is beyond soccer. This is belief. This is religion. Every religion needs its chapel. Where, if not in the heart-in the Millerntor-Stadium? In the midst of angel statues, icons of legendary St.Pauli kickers and authentic pews. There gleams a box as a sacred chapel. Relics soaring above the altar remind of great moments and heros. Entering, you will have the feeling, as if your private chant would sound through the sacred halls: We believe. In the FC St.Pauli.
