The Nole Fam group is the most well known international fan club of the former World No. 1 Novak Djokovic. The fan club originally started out as admiration for Novak Djokovic’s skills transformed into a full-fledged fan group for Novak Djokovic.

The Nole Fam group started out as a Facebook group for the fans of Novak Djokovic fans and slowly started getting attention which eventually turned the Facebook group into a worldwide fan club.

 

The founder of the fan club in an interview narrated,

“After Nole’s follow on Twitter, though, that changed. We were receiving a lot of questions and fans were interacting more with us, so I’ve felt that we need to be more “professional” in that moment because Nole was also following us, and that is basically how the idea to open a membership request was born,” 

Way back in 2018 the group had only 400 recognised members, however, that figure has said to be increased by atleast 200 percent in 2022. On this the founder stated,

“We have around 400 members. Of course Serbia has more members, but Brazil, Argentina and Vietnam are close behind,”

A lot of countries have divisions for their respective nationalities and each country has its own team leader to coordinate the activities of the group.

The club gathers a lot of support for their player, Djokovic. Most of the funding of the group comes through various means of donations and membership fees.
