Default NFLUK Regional Fan Clubs

As we are all members of the NFLUK Forum, it makes sense to enhance this community experience by organising places to watch games, and planning other community building activities (flag football, bbq, etc...). One of the ways that has been discussed is through the creation of a fan club for the NFL, irrespective of ones own favourite team.

Looking for a UK based fan club for say the Colts, might be difficult as a fan club might be located in Sheffield, and you might be the only Colts fan in Bedfordshire. With this being a possible issue, we all tend to migrate to this website and communicate and form relationships with other people who are fans of the sport.

Clearly, the NFLUK Forum IS a fan club, albeit, limited.
How do we move this forward? The logical step is to set up regional fan clubs, whereby NFLUK forum members can have a way of meeting up with other members. The potential to grow the regional fan base would definitely be very real.

So if anyone out there is willing to help organise a regional fan club, please contact me, so we can ensure that even though our clubs will be regional based on geographic location, we will still be ONE fan club for the NFLUK (not dissimilar to the Boy Scouts).

OR if you wish to join one, please click on the link for the current regional clubs.

If you are in these areas, go and join up, meet new people in your area, and share your interest in the sport...and get new people involved.

And just to note, these FB group pages are not in anyway meant to take away from the forum. Most of us here use FB and so is a good way to get in and keep in contact with people who are in our regions.
The forum site is the mothership. We all come back here to get the info we need and then we are able to disseminate it to the group pages.

Sounds like a good idea. I'd be interested, I don't know anyone who follows the sport.
