Sevilla FC fans are located all around Spain, although most of course come from Seville. They even have a group of ´ultra´ fans called the “Biris Norte” created from a large following of the player Alhaji Momodo Njle. Also known as Biri Biri, Njle played in the 1970s however he still has a large following even though he is retired.
