5 Most Famous Mascots Of Football Clubs

1) Bart Simpson -Zenit St.Petersburg

Multi Emmy award show winner, The Simpsons’ character, Bart, was announced as Zenit’s official mascot back in 2014. The club struck a deal with the 20th century Fox for the rights of the Springfield’s most mischievous character. Known for his malicious character, Bart was pictured shaking hands with Andre Vilas-Boas when the Portuguese had completed a medical prior to his arrival in Russia. Four time Russian Champions, Zenit, currently find themselves in 3rd position in Russian Premier League.

2) Gunnersaurus Rex- Arsenal

The famous mascot of the Gunners came into existence back in ’94 when Arsenal gave the club’s young fans the chance to come up with a design for their beloved club. Peter Lovell created the dinosaur like figure. Lovell was inspired by the 1993 classic, Jurassic Park.  Rex has been an ever-present since, often making appearances at community meets, birthdays and weddings. He has been a part of some of club’s greatest moments, often spotted on squad’s bus parades. The 23-year old continues to inspire the Gunners’ faithful both on and off the pitch, lifting their spirits during defeats and celebrating with them their best moments.

3) Fred The Red- Manchester United

England’s most successful club have endured a turbulent time in recent years. The club, uncharacteristically, have had 3 managers in last four years. Despite their on the pitch struggles, the club remains financially potent and their fan base has not decreased. The club’s famous Fred The Red mascot, too continues to be a part of Old Trafford’s glorious history. Much like a cross between, Clifford the big red dog and the Son of Satan, ‘Fred The Red’ has been present in each of club’s winning years. Wearing no 55 on the back, Fred enjoys the time with the players, fans and even the ex-players. His job was in danger recently; however, new manager Jose lifted Fred by offering him a new contract.

4) Chirpy Cockerel -Tottenham

Chirpy Cockerel was made the club’s official mascot partly due to Harry Hotspurs’ love for cockfights. The famous Cockerels have been a part of the club’s emblem since the beginning of the 20th century. Chirpy is a prominent figure during the club’s preseason tours and Mascot derby, where several mascots take part in athletic races. The club have failed to win titles commensurate with their status; however, things are looking on the up under Pochettino. The likes of Dele Alli and Kane have made Spurs look as inspiring as ever and will be hoping to go one better in the title race this time.

5) Hammerhead- West Ham United

Hammers moved to the Olympic Stadium this summer bidding adieu to Upton Park. The East London club also announced their new mascot, Hammerhead. The new mascot came into existence back in 2011, when the one of stadium’s Ironworks was struck by lightning. Some of the club’s ardent supporters, though, did not initially welcome the semi-robotic mascot, with open arms.  The mascot is often seen clicking pictures with club’s young fans, dancing to the music and lifting their spirits.
