FC Buffalo is honored to announce an international friendly against storied German club FC St. Pauli at Robert Rich Sr. All-High Stadium on Saturday, May 25 at 3 p.m. as part of a day long celebration of soccer.
In addition to pre- and post-match fun at official supporters pub Mes Que, FCB is also planning an evening concert at the Town Ballroom for the FCSP team, staff, supporters, and the general public.
Tickets for the match are on sale now: $22 for the general public and FCSP supporters, and $12 for FCB season ticket holders. Teams and groups should email [email protected] for special pricing and opportunities.
STHs will receive a code in the email later Wednesday. Tickets and concert details will be announced at a later date.
"We are looking forward to the exchange and meeting with our fans, because big fan clubs are located in New York and Buffalo," said FCSP president Oke Gottlich. "After the successful trip on all levels last year, it was clear to us that we would travel to the U.S. again. We want to use the positive effect of last year to further increase awareness of FC St. Pauli in the USA."

As part of our trip to Germany this May to represent Buffalo in Dortmund at the Sister Cities Festival, FC St. Pauli graciously offered to host our club for training and a match against their reserves.
Now we're excited to return the favor with true Buffalo hospitality.
"This is an occasion befitting our 10th Anniversary season, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to host a historic club like FC St. Pauli and its brilliant supporters to All-High," said FC Buffalo owner Nick Mendola. "It will be an incredibly stiff challenge for our squad. We owe a debt of gratitude to FCSP, our partners Match IQ, and FCB's partners and supporters for their help in making this happen. On behalf of our supporters, we say welcome to all traveling from overseas, the United States, and Canada."
In the event that FCSP reaches the Bundesliga promotion-relegation playoff, the tour will not happen and all tickets will be refunded.
