If you’ve set up your club and would like to make it an official registered FCSP supporters club, there are only three conditions you need to meet.
1) Gather together a minimum of five people
2) Accept FCSP’s “self-concept statement” [Selbstverständnis] See Below
3) Contact the Supporters Club Spokescouncil [Fanclubsprecherrat]. Visit here to apply (translate the page in your browser) and send your membership request and club info to firstname.lastname@example.org . We’ve found it doesn’t hurt to cc the Fanladen so they both know you are trying to obtain official membership status. Info@stpauli-fanladen.de
