To unite and serve the supporters of Liverpool Football Club in the Greater Mumbai Region and contribute to the larger LFC family worldwide. We do this by fostering a community of Liverpool FC fans in an inclusive, respectful and community-oriented culture. Our aim is to cultivate the unbreakable bond between Club and Supporter and to help create lasting memories.
The Liverpool Mumbai Supporters Club (LMSC) was formed, mainly to provide passionate and fun loving Liverpool FC supporters an ideal place to congregate, watch and support their beloved football team. It all started when a few passionate Liverpool supporters from Mumbai, decided to form a fan club, with an international outlook and based on principles which epitomizes everything the famous football team stands for.
Since its inception in 2008, the supporters base of LMSC has been growing steadily. Well it wasn’t very easy when it all started ; there had been various attempts in the past where a few Liverpool fans tried to meet on a regular basis, but nothing materialised. The most successful team in England had very little boast about in Mumbai, whereas the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal had fast growing fan bases.
The common meeting point for the Liverpool supporters were social networking websites like Orkut where they would regularly meet up and discuss about their beloved club be it the spectacular wins, disappointing losses or even take a united stand against the unpopular owners of Liverpool football club back then .
However this was about to change come, June 2008. The idea of having an inter- fan club tournament was being floated by the other fan clubs. This acted as a stimulant for the Liverpool fans in Mumbai who not only loved supporting their club off the field but also loved playing football on the field. So on 1st June 2008, the Liverpool fans met for the first time at Shivaji Park, Dadar where more than twenty fans turned up. Back then this was a huge number.
Since then there has been no looking back, the Sunday league football style tournament culminated into us gathering and watching Liverpool matches together. Back then in 2008, watching a football match in a Pub was a pretty nascent concept and not many of us were open to watching it in a pub. Only half a dozen supporters turned up for the first screening, but nonetheless it was great fun. By the end of 2008-09 we had a sizeable figure of about 30 regular members who would turn up for the screenings, also buoyed by the ‘fact’ that we had a great season under Rafa Benitez.
LMSC grew popular also due to the increasing reach of social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. In the next two years LMSC started increasing the frequency of screenings from 5 in 2008 to 50 in the next two years. In Mumbai, we also have this great concept of joint screenings where fans of two set of supporters clubs watch their teams play in a single pub. The atmosphere is fired up, with constant bantering, and digs at each other with innovative banners. Since then we have had multiple joint screenings with a number of supporters club based in Mumbai like Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City, Spurs, Real Madrid etc.
OLSC Mumbai has hosted several events along with the club and sponsors like Premier League World in 2015.
LFC World 2017 where we hosted LFC Legends like Sami Hyypia, Luis Garcia, Robbie Fowler, and Vladimir Smicer/
OLSC Mumbai has also hoted other LFC Legends through club sponsors Standard Chartered like Ian Rush, Jason McAteer, Steve Mcmanaman etc over the years.
If you are a Red based out of Mumbai and haven’t met us yet or are just visiting, please do drop in at our screenings. We would be happy to have you over.
