I was in Hamburg for a long weekend quite a few years ago when St Pauli played Union Berlin. It was considered a big game at the time, and I don"t think they were in the top flight. St Pauli fans considered themselves a sort of left leaning squatter anarchist student crowd in those days and maybe still do, and the Union crowd who travelled over (quite a few in our hotel) were mainly a working class crowd more akin to UK away crowds back in the day. We went up to the ground to try and get tickets but it was a sell out. Had quite a few beers with Union supporters after the match in the evening as we were staying in the Repperbahn area and St Pauli's ground was only a 5 min walk across a park from there
political ideology meets football- sounds like an interesting game, I remember when St Pauli seemed to be everyone's favourite other team a few years ago but seems to have died off a bit lately. For real fervour though it is hard to beat the fanaticism of the Urawa Reds Ultra's in Tokyo- best atmosphere I have ever witnessed at a football match anywhere. An amazing place when it is full-m check out - '20111015 reds' on Youtube

Tony Woodcock had a decent few seasons in the early 80s turning out at the old Mungersdorfer Stadion for FC Koln

Without FC Augsburg there may never have been flags on the Bank (at least not as far back as 2011)
