Arsenal Supporters Clubs In North Carolina
Cape Fear Gooners
North Carolina certainly is a red State, with no fewer than seven Arsenal supporters groups in its confines. First, we have the Cape Fear Gooners (yes, that one). This official Arsenal group are a small but dedicated bunch. The Harp in Wilmington is their home pub on the Atlantic coast.

Bull City Gooners
The next three Arsenal supporters clubs in North Carolina are all within 50 miles of each other. These Gooner bars form a trifecta known as the Triangle. Starting at the top of the Triangle in Durham we have the Bull City Gooners. Their Twitter page is closed but you can follow them on Facebook and their website. Bull McCabes on the high Street has been the Arsenal pub in Durham since 2012. Fortunately the bar has an outside patio large enough to accommodate the hoardes of Gooners who show up for those sunny game days.

Queen City Gooners
Down in Charlotte where the Carolinas meet, the Queen City Gooners reign supreme. They offer a nice membership pack that includes some very cool merchandise. This group formed in 2011 and a healthy number now watch Arsenal matches at Dilworth Neighborhood Grille. Also of note, Charlotte is also the home of a new MLS franchise, Charlotte FC.

Camel City Gooners
Last but not least, our final North Carolina stop is in Winston-Salem, home of the Camel City Gooners, Unfortunately, the nickname refers to the cigarettes, but we won’t get the hump about that. The club was formed in 2013 and they watch Arsenal at the Small Batch Beer Company on West 5th Street in downtown Salem.
