About Arsenal Mumbai Supporter's Club

Arsenal Mumbai Supporters Club's journey began in May 2006 when a group of young Gooners in Mumbai, started the Arsenal Mumbai Fan Club page on a widely used social networking website of that time - Orkut. The page started attracting other Gooners based in Mumbai and in a couple of weeks, more than 100 members joined the group.

Footie Meets

As the group became viral and many more members joined in, a Footie meet was decided to be held only for Arsenal fans in Juhu beach on a Sunday morning. This was the 1st Footie meet by AMFC held on 23rd December, 2006 which later on became a huge hit. As the number of fans who attended the Footie meets starting increasing, AMFC shifted their Footie meets to Shivaji Park to accommodate more fans from different parts of the city.
The popularity of the Footie meets grew so much that one of the widely watch Football shows in India - Football Focus on ESPN also talked about Gooners in Mumbai meeting up every Sunday and pictures of the group were also telecasted. 
 

From a gathering of 12 people to celebrate and play together to hundreds over the years, From Juhu beach to Shivaji park and finally onto the Astro turf, AMSC has come a long way over the 475+ Footy Meets. We also had 2 footy meets at WIFA & Mumbai FC's home, The Cooperage Stadium. It has just not been a journey limited to football, the camaraderie here, and the friendships built are the kind which last for life.

For everyone who enjoys playing football as much as they enjoy watching it, join us on Sunday mornings for the Footy Meets!

Arsenal Screenings

AMFC also began screening key Arsenal matches since early 2007. Our first screening was Arsenal Vs Manchester United on 21st of January, 2007 where Thierry Henry scored a goal in the injury time and won the game for Arsenal. The screening is one of the most cherished moments for the Mumbai Gooners. Since then, AMFC decided to screen all important matches for Arsenal in order to get more Gooners under one roof to watch the match.
 

Since its inception, AMSC has organized over 125 screenings at different venues which has evolved into a massive gathering of the city’s gooners at the venues which turn into miniature versions of the Emirates when The Arsenal are playing. Loud, ringing chants, cries of joy and sorrow, followed by the ecstasy of victory or despair of defeat, it promises a veritable roller coaster of emotions for the viewer. The best place to catch a screening other than the Emirates is here, wearing your colors and chanting with fellow Gooners.

RECORD: More than 600 Gooners were present for the FA Cup Final in May 2014 as well as FA Cup Final 2015.
 

Official Supporters Club recognition from Arsenal FC

In 2007, AMFC decided to apply for the official supporters club affiliation by Arsenal FC, UK. One of the AMFC members travelled to London to showcase AMFC's credentials and make a strong case for it. Finally after one year, In October 2008, Arsenal granted its affiliation as the official Supporters Club of Arsenal in Mumbai - It was first of its kind in India. AMFC soon became Arsenal Mumbai Supporters Club. Where is AMSC today? Since then, AMSC has only grown. As of today, AMSC has over 1000 members, 4000+ Twitter followers, 1000+ Instagram Followers & over 118,000 likes on the Official Facebook page. Arsenal Mumbai Supporters Club's screening of the North London Derby (Arsenal v/s Spurs) dated 31st August, 2013 was rated one of the best in the world by Bleacher's Report. They rated Arsenal Mumbai as 6th Best place in the world outside London to watch an Arsenal game. Our main aim is to build a strong community for Gooners in Mumbai and keep supporting the club we love - ARSENAL FC!
