A fan club is a group that is dedicated to a well-known person, group, idea (such as history) or sometimes even an inanimate object (such as a famous building). Most fan clubs are run by fans who devote considerable time and resources to supporting them. There are also "official" fan clubs that are run by someone associated with the person or organization the club is centered around. This is the case for many musicians, sports teams and more.

“As night returns bringing doubts
That swarm around the sleepers head
But are fended off with clubs and knives ...”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
