It’s a big patch and for several years no Arsenal Supporters Clubs have existed here either officially or unofficially. Early in the 2005-06 season (the last at Highbury) we decided that given the fame and all round greatness of our club this was a situation that ought to be rectified.
We set about organising a group to bring together like-minded supporters across the region who share our passion, to organise trips to watch the team both home and away and arrange social gatherings from time to time.
Arsenal granted us official recognition in July 2006; a Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary were appointed (posts that are elected each summer, along with the other committee members); a launch meeting was organised and our first ticket order was placed with AFC for the Dennis Bergkamp testimonial.
We currently have about 170 members spread across the West Midlands area. Thanks to everyone who’s got in touch and helped us to grow so successfully.
