This Arsenal fan group has an interesting history hosting the many Gooners in the San Francisco area. It was founded by Mark Barbeau in 2006 when he located a bar that was run by a fellow Gooner named Patrick Dunphy. Since then the collaboration has helped to grow one of the largest Arsenal fan groups in America. Maggie McGarry’s is heaving on Arsenal matchdays, so get there early.

Early mornings, brew, great people, and the Arsenal. How could life get any better? That’s the question posed on the Fresno Gooners Facebook page.

Santa Barbara Gooners
Further down the Pacific Coast Highway, you will find more sun-baked Arsenal fans at The Press Room in downtown Santa Barbara. We’ve had no reports of Santa Barbara’s celebrity Gooner, Prince Harry, lurking around in shades and a red cap on Saturday mornings, but surely it’s just a matter of time? Don’t forget to check our soccer tv guide to find out when is the next Arsenal match on.

Gooners Groups In Southern California
Arsenal Los Angeles
The Fox & Hounds in The Valley is one of the most established soccer bars in California, and indeed the nation. This famous West Coast soccer pub has been showing live soccer in Studio City since Herbert Chapman was manager. They’ve been home to Arsenal Los Angeles since 1998 before Arsenal America was founded.
The club has some cool Arsenal Los Angeles tee shirts you can check out on their website. They are also the only California Arsenal supporters group that doesn’t include the word ‘Gooners’ in their name, so we commend them on their originality.

Los Angeles Gooners
A short hop over the Hills brings you to the original Los Angeles area Arsenal club. The Los Angeles Gooners watch Arsenal games over in Culver City at Joxer Daly’s. It’s a good spot for celebrity Gooner spotting, considering its proximity to some major film studios.

Beach City Gooners
The advantage of early morning EPL matches on the West Coast is the opportunity to spend the rest of the day sunbathing. The Auld Dubliner where the Long Beach Arsenal fans gather to watch games is conveniently located between Santa Monica and Huntington Beach, offering miles of golden Pacific Coast beaches. Take a day trip to Catalina Island if you’re feeling inspired by the result.

Finally, we reach the southernmost of the California Arsenal fan groups and one of the closest to Mexico that we’ve found so far. Tijuana is a day trip over the border, but if you’re planning to stay Stateside for the match then you should head to the Bluefoot Bar – The North Bank of North Park.
