To commemorate the New York Cosmos’ historic friendly with FC St. Pauli, we looked to the words of Emma Goldman to explain a feeling. Emma Goldman was an anarchist activist and writer who lived here in New York City during the early 1900s, and a woman from which we, like many radical thinkers across the globe, draw great influence. On the front rail of the stadium on Thursday night you will see Goldman’s words inked in permanence, an excerpt from one of her larger works that, in its simplicity, reflects our mentality onto the world.
BRIGADA 71 STATEMENT: WELCOME TO NEW YORK, FC ST PAULI
On behalf of Brigada71 we would like to extend a warm welcome to the FC St. Pauli players, staff, and fans to New York City. We couldn’t be more excited that the famous New York Cosmos’ first home international friendly since the 1980’s is against a club with which our supporters have such deep ties and shared values.
Brigada71 is proud to announce a partnership with the Brooklyn Pride Community Center for our participation in this years Prideraiser. Brigada seeks fixed pledges for every Cosmos home goal scored in June, with all donations going directly to helping programs and services for LGBTQIA individuals in need living in New York City’s largest borough.
After being inspired by Mateo Durango and Johnny Borrajo’s efforts with Playing for Pride, we decided on starting a campaign with Prideraiser.
