Middlesbrough Football Club is constantly striving to engage with our fans, and we have close links to a number of supporter groups. The club holds regular discussions with different groups, and also attends meetings of the Middlesbrough Supporters Forum (MSF) to discuss wide ranging issues from an agenda driven by our different supporter groups.

Minutes from MSF meetings and updates can be found here

The groups below are organised independently of MFC. Should you have any questions or want to raise an issue please either contact one of the supporter groups listed below or email Yvonne Ferguson, Head of Supporter Services at MFC.

Middlesbrough Supporters Forum

Middlesbrough Supporters Forum (MSF) was founded in February 2017 bringing together MFC supporter groups and is working closely with the club on a range of fans' issues and community initiatives. MSF brings together independent groups and fan representatives from the Middlesbrough Disabled Supporters Association (MDSA), Middlesbrough Supporters South (MSS), Red Faction, Boro Fusion, Twe12th Man, Middlesbrough Official Supporters Club (MOSC), and media platforms, Fly Me To The Moon and RED ARMY.TV.

Middlesbrough Disabled Supporters' Association (MDSA)

As well as campaigning on issues on behalf of disabled fans, the MDSA organises trips to all away games, tickets permitting. All disabled Season Card Holders are automatically enrolled as members. Membership is FREE for all disabled Season Card holders. Associate membership is available and discretionary on request.

Middlesbrough Supporters South (MSS)

Set up in 1975 by a handful of fans on the steps of the players' entrance at Highbury, MSS flies the flag for Boro in the south of England but also acts as a Supporters Club for Boro fans exiled across the world. Members receive an e-newsletter to catch up on events, access to match tickets, reduced train fares and designated pubs for pre-match drinking at away games as well as a large sports club.

The supporters club has two current 11-a-side football teams playing in the London-based APFSCIL Sunday football league, having won the double in 2016 and 2017 and two pool teams playing in the APFSCIL Pool League. London-based supporters also benefit from watching Boro's televised games together in a central London pub (currently Walkabout Temple). The supporters club also has an active charity arm including organising an annual football match at the Riverside Stadium for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, a fans' match in aid of the Finlay Cooper Fund, and an annual Christmas gift appeal for Zoe's Place Teesside Hospice.

For further information regarding MSS, please email Phil Waugh. Membership is free and registration can be made directly on the MSS website or via the MSS Facebook page.

The Twe12th Man

The Twe12th Man is a group of Middlesbrough fans united by their unconditional support for the Boro. Their objectives are to add pride, passion and noise to the Boro matches, home and away, visually and vocally, for the full 90 minutes, win lose or draw. The Twe12th Man stands independent of any political organisation, funding or belief, and is a non-profit, non-membership based organisation.
