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.
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 and Boro Supporters Club 2020, and media platforms Fly Me To The Moon and oneBoro.co.uk.
For more information and to view MSF meeting minutes and press releases, please visit our Middlesbrough Supporters Forum page. You can also visit the Middlesbrough Supporters Forum website boro.support.
Boro Supporters Club 2020
Boro Supporters Club 2020 was launched in January 2020. It hopes to build on the strengths of the old Middlesbrough Official Supporters Club and our aim is to ensure that fans can continue to share in and celebrate the Boro on and off the pitch.
Membership of the Boro Supporters’ Club 2020 is open to all, whether a season card holder or not. The only requirement is that you are a Boro fan.
We are a group of loyal, dedicated and friendly fans who meet to talk all things Boro. Meetings are held monthly, at the Riverside Stadium, during the football season. Members can chat about the Boro and have a drink from the bar or a tea or coffee. We offer the opportunity to listen to speakers, including players, ex-players, coaching and other Boro staff, journalists and football experts. We organise quizzes, memorabilia valuation nights, tours and trips. Boro Supporters’ Club 2020’s aim is to bring the Football Club closer to the fans. We hold an annual charity event to raise funds for Boro’s chosen charity and hold a Player of the Season Award night.
Boro Supporters’ Club 2020 offers access to a friendly community of Boro fans and has a social emphasis. It also supports and values the views of Boro fans and will always aim to represent our members’ views and interests on the Middlesbrough Supporters Forum.

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.
There are fundraising events held during the season together with social events for fans to meet and discuss any problems arising from time to time, and have chance to meet Boro players and staff.
MDSA operate their own dedicated and adapted vehicle for away match travel. (Details available on request. Members have priority use)
For any information, queries or sponsorship, please contact Paddy Cronesberry MBE, MDSA Chairman on 07719 027157 or 01642 641620 or email email@example.com.
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 an 11-a-side football team playing in Hackney Division One and a pool team that plays in the APFSCIL Pool League.
London-based supporters also benefit from watching Boro's televised games together in a central London pub (currently Dog & Truck in Aldgate).
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.
Middlesbrough Supporters Club South West
Established in 2021, the Supporters Club South West aims to represent fans based in the South West of the country, and provide a social and community environment for supporters situated throughout the region.
Initially an online community due to current restrictions, it's hoped to expand into a more social group with meet-ups and organised travel to games when possible. Being based so far away from the Riverside isn't the easiest, so we're aiming to build a local community of like-minded Boro fans to enjoy supporting from afar. Come and join us on Twitter (@borosouthwest) or our Facebook group.
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. To find out more, contact the Twe12th Man on Facebook or follow the Twe12th Man on Twitter.
Boro Fusion – Our Boro Our Community
Boro Fusion came together in July 2017 to form a group that acts as a voice for the BAME community in supporting the Boro. We are a creative and committed group of supporters who are determined to make a difference.
We welcome all voices from all backgrounds. We love the diversity of our town and we want to help ensure the terraces continue to reflect the local community. Anyone interested in joining Boro Fusion can email Ifshaan. You can also follow us on Facebook (@borofusion) or Twitter (@RealBoroFusion).

Rainbow Reds is not only for supporters who identify themselves as LGBT+, every fan is welcome to join should they wish to support this group. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org
Yarm Reds were formed in 2001 by a group of die-hard Boro supporters who wanted to organise transport to all home Boro games.
They are based at The Golden Jubilee just outside of Yarm and take two coaches to every Boro home game as well as several away games per season.
Seats can be booked for single games or the whole season.
