Forza Garibaldi is a supporter driven movement which aims to reinvigorate the support at NFFC. We emerged in 2016 in response to a desire from fans to mark the 150th anniversary of the club and has since developed into a positive campaign to provide a greater level of backing for the team and to inspire our fellow supporters.
We organise large pre-match gatherings at various venues in Nottingham and beyond which inject positivity and a spirit into the fans that attend. Inside the grounds we organise displays of differing scales and are intent on enhancing the atmosphere in the stands. A primary motivation behind our efforts is to forge a reputation as one of the leading sets of supporters in the country, known for our originality and as an unwavering and constant source of support for the Garibaldi Red both home and away.
We welcome you to ForzaGaribaldi.com and recommend that you take a look at the main About Us section for further information.
