    I live in Houston, Texas and it's been almost impossible to find Villa fans here. Everyone seems to only support United, Liverpool, Arsenal & Chelsea. The problem being I can not find a pub to watch games on Saturday or Sunday. What I am asking if anyone know s a group of people in the Houston area that I can coordinate with the possibility of creating a meeting place.[LINEUP-4-4-2][/LINEUP-4-4-2]

    We've only got two or three Villa fans that come out to the pub for Saturday or Sunday matches here in Columbus. But considering that there are normally only two matches shown on US tv at the time, it's not a problem sharing TV time with the "Big 4" supporters at the two main pubs that show EPL matches. The EPL supporters' community is, for the most part, small enough that other than some light ribbing (heavier the more important the match) you won't get too much crap from them. I'd suggest just showing up where ever the others congregate for matches and support Villa loud and proud. That's what I do and I'm known as the local "Villa guy" among both the EPL crowd and those who crossover to the MLS crowd.

    Have you checked
    http://www.avfclionsclubs.co.uk/

    They have a list of official supporters clubs around the world. You could even start one. I registered the Toronto club and found a few like-minded Villa fans in the area.

    with ESPN, FSC, and now FSC plus showing all the matches, you wonder how many supporters there are in various places that just don't go out to pubs or don't know about online sites such as this site to find out others are curious about finding other supporters.

    Since all I seem to listen to lately on my mp3 player is Guardian Football Weekly podcasts, I thought the title of this was "Villa Support Group" which is evidently the name of a poster on the Guardian's blog in response to the podcasts.

    And OP, people follow Chelsea where you are? If it weren't Houston, I'd move :)

    I don't know many in central Indiana, but there are some in Fort Wayne that came down for the FA Cup. Good times (except for the loss!).

    there are a lot in NYC, but we have about 4 or 5 of us in Bridgeport CT.

    So if anyone lives in the CT area, get in touch.

    I'm in North Carolina and I've never met another Villa fan..I know a ton of EPL fans in general though. A MUFC guy, a Newcastle guy, Totty fan, Everton, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Fuham. I'm just missing another Villa fan.

    I live near LA but I go to college in Erie, PA. I dont even get FSC in my dorm, so it is online games for me. Or the occasionally game broadcasted on ESPN

    Villa supporter in Philadelphia, PA area here
    AVSC Philadelphia has been set up and can be found on the Lions club webpage that someone posted earlier in the thread

    Stoney's Pub, Catherine Rooney's, and Tir Na Nog typically put games on when I ask no issues

    Up The Villa!

    i always dig threads like this as I know outside the old traditional top 4, you won't easily find supporters around most places.

    there are others out there but it is just hard to find as some only use various websites if going online at all.

    I know most of the pubs around here cater to Man U supporters for the most part. :rolleyes:
