It's Supporters Club Week on as we pay tribute to the devoted fans who follow Arsenal from all over the United Kingdom and from all corners of the globe.

Over the past few weeks, Arsenal Supporters Clubs from around the world have filled in our questionnaire with details of their background, their activities and their fondest trips to Arsenal matches. We'll be publishing two per day, every day this week.

We continue today with the lowdown on Arsenal Hellas from Greece and a Supporters Club from even further afield, Arsenal Singapore.

The Arsenal Hellas Supporters Club

When and how was your Supporters Club formed?

The Club was initially formed by a bunch of loyal Greek Arsenal fans, towards the end of 2002/03 season and firstly the Club was recognised by the Greek State. In October 2004 Arsenal FC recognised Arsenal Hellas as an official Supporters' Club and from that moment we bear the name "Arsenal Hellas" and we use an Official Supporters' Club Crest.

How many members do you have?

The Club now has 174 members, not only from Greece. Honourable Members of our Club are Mrs Jill Smith, Arsenal FC Supporters Liaison Officer (who has always been so assisting and helpful to our Club) and our former Greek player Stathis Tavlaridis. Our premises are in the centre of Athens (35 Chalkokondili Street PC 104 32) within walking distance from the tube and metro stations in Omonia. There, we hold meetings and we can watch almost every Arsenal game.

What functions/events do you organise?

In the period when Arsenal came to Athens to play against the Greek side of Panathinaikos, 30 members of the Club were delighted to see Arsenal play on home soil in an away match! Also before that match representatives from our club had meetings with Mrs Jill Smith, the then Arsenal Vice Chairman Mr David Dein and Arsenal Secretary Mr David Miles who were all so kind to spend some time with us. Also in May 2006 the football team of the Club made the trip to Highbury to participate in the Supporters' Club Tournament.

Regarding fundraising, there is an annual subscription of 40 euros (around 26 English pounds) and we use this money on the upkeep of our premises (rent etc), but also there are some donations to charity such as organisations that deal with homeless children.

Do you meet up with other Supporters Clubs?

We have very good relations with Supporters Clubs of other teams (such as Liverpool, Juventus, Barcelona, Real Madrid) and sometimes we play against them in a 5-side football tournaments. Our major aim (besides watching Arsenal live which our members manage to do occasionally throughout the season) is to strengthen the ties between all Arsenal fans around the world. So any Arsenal fans when coming to Greece are most welcome to visit us in our premises and they can be mostly assured that they will feel "at home"!
