The club currently has 4 official Supporters’ Clubs, ranging from Lisburn and Belfast to Scandinavia! Some brief information on each of them is listed here. If you feel like you would like to join any of the clubs, or would like more information on them, then please use the email addresses below.

Grosvenor Whites Supporters Club
The Grosvenor Whites Supporters Club (GWSC) was established in 1946, when a group of friends got together in the Grosvenor Arms bar to form a Distillery FC Supporters Club.

We are proud to say that the bond remains today with the current membership, and many strong friendships have been forged over the decades.

GWSC is the oldest surviving Belfast based Supporters Club associated with Lisburn Distillery FC, celebrating our 75th anniversary with a special function in Belfast in October 2021.

GWSC meet monthly at Belfast Club (Pakenham Street) on second Friday of the month during the football season to consider all things Distillery. Starting 2023/24 season we will hold meetings once a month at New Grosvenor after a Saturday match (schedule tbd – email [email protected] for details).

During the season, GWSC arrange away buses to destinations beyond the Greater Belfast area and continue to help subsidise fares to encourage other Distillery supporter’s to hop aboard.

GWSC has remained loyal to LDFC throughout the many seasons, following all the footballing highs and lows with the Whites, contributing tens of thousands of pounds along the way in sponsorship and donations. We currently sponsor LDFC each season by minimum £1000.

GWSC has traditionally drawn its membership from Belfast, but latterly we have welcomed new members from Greater Belfast and Lisburn. Applications for new members are considered throughout the season, email contact address for the Grosvenor Whites SC is [email protected]

Lisburn Whites Supporters Club
The Lisburn Whites Supporters Club was established in February 1993 and draws its membership from supporters throughout the borough of Lisburn. Their members help out on matchdays in numerous ways, including running the ballot and coffee shop. Club meetings are usually fortnightly at New Grosvenor on Thursday evenings throughout the season.

Lisburn Distillery Scandinavian Supporters Club
The Lisburn Distillery Scandinavian Supporters’ Club (LDSSC) was formed in March 2010 in Norway. The club currently has around 50 members from all over Scandinavia – eg: Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

Jan Tholin is the Supporters’ Club spokesman and both he, and other members of LDSSC have travelled over to watch the Whites in action, every year since 2011. The LDSSC is currently trying to increase its membership, particularly those with a big heart for the “British style” of football, and to create financial support for Lisburn Distillery. Their aim is to have a yearly trip to Northern Ireland to watch the Whites.
