Default Peñas (supporter clubs)

In Spain many teams have supporters clubs called Peñas.To be a proper Peña you have to be officially afiliated to the club and abide by rules. So this site is I suppose is an Unofficial web based Peña and the other one I visit www.depor.com (web ri@zor) is an actual Peña (no. 210).
Anyway I came across some information on the official clubs website on how many peñas exist for Depor and where.I thought some of you might be interested.
Here is a run down:

In Galicia there are
203 in A Coruña province
15 in Lugo Province
11 in Pontevedra Province (this is where Vigo is)
5 in Ourense province
Rest of spain
4 in Andalucian province
3 in Leon province (NO not our Leon)
3 in the basque region
3 in the canary Islands
1 in Burgos
1 in Zaragoza
1 in Mallorca
1 in Barcelona
1 in Valencia
1 in Madrid

TOTAL of 254 in SPAIN

Rest of Europe
8 in Switzerland
2 in UK
1 in France
1 in Belgium
1 in Holland
1 in Germany

TOTAL of 14 for Europe

America and Oceania
4 in USA
2 in Venezuela
1 in Mexico
1 in Brazil
1 in Argentina
1 in Australia

Total of 10 for rest of world

Grand total of 278 currently.


In June 1988 there were 7 Depor Peñas !!!!!!

By officially affiliated to the club do you mean I have to be a member? I'm working on it. Maybe I could start the official Canadian Peña...

You have to Officially apply to Depor to start a peña. You don't necessarily have to be a member yourself.Althogh I suppose it would make sense if you are.Then people can apply to your Official peña to show the support for the club

only one? yes i've heard that there's an official japanese depor fanclub. probably because djalminha had a stint in a japanese club.

how about china? seems like chinese depor fans are relatively well represented here. if there isn't already an official fanclub in china, lake or one of the other chinese fans can start something...

it's not the time to start any in singapore yet... as there are not enough local supporters for now.

It's very easy to start a "peña". Basically, you only have to tell so to the club... and that's it...
You don't really need much people... Some "peñas" start with 2 or 3 guys... and then they grow (or not).
The obligations are few. First you have to notify the club and abide by the general rules, which are quite common sense (no offensive names for a peña, no sexism, no profit allowed, etc). If you want to charge the "socios" of the peña you have to demonstrate that that money is used in activities of the peña and only that (noone can make money with a peña). As far as I know there's a yearly meeting of peñas anf every peña has to present (or send) a report on activities, finances, etc... nothing really-really serious, as I've said...
A peña is like any other civic association.
You get some advantages. For instance, it's easy to get tickets and discounts, 'cos if you're an official peña you are entitled to ring the club and book tickets and stuff for all the guys in the peña, etc.
You don't need to be a "socio" of Depor to be in a peña, not at all. A member of a peña is just a regular fan, like any of us.
