Car-free game at FC St. Pauli’s stadium
FC St. Pauli and hvv switch (transport association that coordinates public transport in Hamburg) are calling for people to leave their cars at the home game against SV Sandhausen on Sunday (September 11, 1:30 p.m.) and come to the Millerntor on foot, by bike or by public transport.
Hardly any other stadium in Germany is as easy to reach by public transport as the Millerntor: the underground stations St. Pauli and Feldstraße are almost directly in front of the gates of the stadium, and the underground station Messehallen is not far either. Several bus lines stop in the immediate vicinity, and there are also S-Bahn and other bus stations within walking distance. The expansion of cycle paths in the district has also improved access by bicycle. The club also offers free guarded bicycle parking spaces at the Millerntor, which are used extensively on match days.
The club is pleased that they can already welcome a large proportion of people to the Millerntor who come to the stadium on foot, or use their bikes or the hvv. For the home game against SV Sandhausen, FC St. Pauli and hvv switch are now calling on everyone who is still driving to the Millerntor to change their transportation method – if possible. Because not everyone can do without the car, some are dependent on it for health reasons, for example.
FC St. Pauli and hvv switch have been working together for a long time to promote local public transport in Hamburg. It’s not about banning cars, but about sensible alternatives that make driving by car superfluous. With the car-free game day, FC St. Pauli and hvv switch would like to draw attention to this topic and set an example so that the fans think about how they can be more environmentally friendly and sustainable on the road.
