Following on from the announcement that East Midlands Owls became The Sheffield Wednesday Supporters’ Society, Wednesdayite's first affiliate member.  We are delighted to announce that the New York Owls are to follow EMO and become their second link up with one of the Sheffield Wednesday community’s regional supporters’ groups which are based around the globe.

The New York Owls have agreed to become an affiliate member of Wednesdayite by agreeing to link up with the society.  NYO founder Paddy Jones said “We are very excited to become an affiliate member of Wednesdayite. I speak on behalf of all our members when I say that although we live in a different country our hearts are in Sheffield, especially at 10am on Saturday mornings when the games kick off over here! By affiliating with Wednesdayite we are contributing to the great community work they’re doing back home where most of our families still live.

Despite only starting the group in February 2012 we have gone from strength to strength thanks to the massive support of all the Wednesday fans across the world. This relationship with Wednesdayite is a great honour and the next big step on what promises to be an exciting season for both our supporters group and the club.

With TV coverage in League 1 limited last season we cant wait for the new Championship season to kick-off, this league gets far more coverage and we already have 3 games to look forward to in the first 3 months. We’re especially looking forward to October and our dirty West Yorkshire rivals.

We’d like to thank Wednesdayite for this opportunity of affiliation and extend the invitation to Wednesdayites all over the world to come and join us over ‘ere for whenever they’re visiting the Big Apple."

Wednesdayite chair Nigel Short said "We're absolutely delighted to welcome another new affiliate to the fold - and our first overseas group too!

We are moving more and more towards bringing all of our fans groups together, new and existing, and we welcome enquiries from Wednesday fans all over the UK, and the World, as we work to deliver the best fans group in the world - for the best fans on the planet.
