History

Tigers Ultras firstly appeared supporting Asteras, in 2006. The group was created by some Asteras Tripolis fans, in a cafeteria in Tripoli. At the time, the team was competing in the second tier of Greek football, the Football League. They would attend the games from Gate 6 of the two-stand, at the time, Theodoros Kolokotronis Stadium. In 2008, two new stands were built, located behind the goals. It was then when Tigers where transferred in the stand, near the train station. With the construction of the new stands, the team decided to change the number allocation of the gates. Tigers Ultras would be attending the games from Gate 2, Sector C. In 2008, they started attending Arkadikos games, in the Tripoli Indoor Hall.

Political views

Tigers Ultras are a no political (neither right-wing nor left-wing) ultras group. They support localism, which explains the Greek flags and the Theodoros Kolokotronis banners often seen at the stands.
