Who we are
AKSC or Arsenal Kerala Supporters Club is the home of Arsenal FC fans in Kerala, India.
The original Arsenal supporters club was founded in 1949. It was conceptualized as a place to meet before and after matches for all true Gooners.
Humbly following in the footsteps of the original club, Arsenal fans in Kerala envisioned AKSC in 2011, as a community of Gooners, for Gooners. The founding members shaped it to be a place for Gooners to work together towards the benefit of all Arsenal supporters in Kerala.
Since 2014, AKSC has developed and maintained a working relationship with the club and raised both the volume and quality of support for Arsenal FC in the state by organizing match screenings, football tournaments and welfare activities, many of which have been well reported by local and national media and helped raise the profile of the club within the country.
Over the years, our community continues to grow stronger in terms of the number of members joining our fold along with the number of activities coordinated every year. Members include the young and old, of both sexes, hailing from districts across the state. AKSC currently boasts over 3000 fans, including 650 plus registered members and has an active presence in all fourteen districts of Kerala.
The group was officially recognized by Arsenal FC in 2016 and continues to passionately support the club we love as well as strive for the betterment of football in Kerala.
