This week the Consulate General welcomed one of the most popular soccer clubs in Germany: FC St. Pauli from Hamburg. The club currently plays in the 2nd highest division of German soccer. On Thursday, they played against the New York Cosmos in an entertaining game at the B. Comissio Stadium in Upper Manhattan. The game ended with a _2:1_loss for St. Pauli, but that did not keep them from enjoying their time in the city. St. Pauli also visited the German House in New York and gave a jersey as a present to Consul General Gill. The Consul General and FC St. Pauli used this event to remind fans to vote in the European elections this Sunday!
