Extra stadium info – Millerntor-Stadion

The Millerntor-Stadion, which is also known as a venue for American football and concerts, opened as the Wilhelm-Koch-Stadion. The stadium opened with a capacity of 32,000. Later, its capacity was reduced to 20,000 for safety reasons. The Millerntor-Stadion is located near the famous Reeperbahn, which is known as the main nightlife district and the main red-light district of Hamburg. The venue was renovated between 2006 and 2015. The renovation costs were €55 million. Fußball-Club St. Pauli have been tenants of the stadium since 1963. They are nicknamed Freibeuter der Liga (Buccaneers of the League). The supporters of FC St. Pauli are highly identified with left-wing politics. HSV are known as the arch-rivals of FC St. Pauli. The first league match between both clubs took place on 19 October 1924.
