Ranking College Soccer Supporter Groups by Social Media Followers

Supporters Groups

The men’s college soccer season kicks off this Friday, which means the return of supporters groups for some of the biggest programs in the country. While not every program has an established supporters group, some like The Crew at the University of Maryland and Gaucho Locos at UC Santa Barbara have been able to rally the troops around the program and operate like a supporter group you might see in USL.

By my count, there are 27 supporters groups for men’s soccer that have a presence on social media. There are a number of other school-specific supporters groups that include all sports like the Gaucho Locos at UC Santa Barbara, AK Rowdies at Akron, Otto’s Army at Syracuse and the Hoo Crew at Virginia, but for the sake of this survey I stuck with groups specific to soccer.

Here they are ranked in order of their social media follower count.
