The Manchester United Supporters Association Australia has a simple goal – to bring more Manchester United fans together, more often.
The group, also known as OZMUFC, was founded in 2011 by Matthew Galea with the launch of a website and social media channels.
At the time, the website functioned primarily as a blog for Australian Manchester United fans to opine on anything to do with the club, as well as providing match previews and reports, and promoting the activities of the country’s officially recognised Manchester United supporters clubs.
The social media channels were launched in the hope of bringing more fans together and to further promote these activities.
Since 2011, there has been immense growth in the activity of United fans in Australia.
Official supporter clubs in Victoria and New South Wales are long-standing and storied, but there has been a boom in Brisbane with the rise of Brisbane Manchester United Supporters Club and another in Perth.
Supporters in Adelaide have also been more active in recent times.
The OZMUFC.com website was temporarily closed in 2014 but was relaunched in November promising a new focus on Manchester United supporters in Australia.
As a result, the focus of the website will shift from analysing the football of Manchester United, but instead look to tell the stories of the United faithful in Australia and keep fans up to date with all the happenings of supporters clubs around Australia.
