Sports Fans Coalition (SFC) is dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of sports fans nationwide.
Right now, we’re fighting for player safety. The NFL has given $292,000 in campaign contributions to certain members of Congress investigating the connection between concussions and playing football. Fans and players deserve better than that.Sign our petition

The Cubs vs. Indians in the World Series; Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton in the presidential race, and now this: U.S. vs. DIRECTV in a Dodgers doozie. Can this year get any weirder?

With the All-Cinderella-Story World Series under way, baseball fans in Cleveland and Chicago pinching themselves to make sure they aren’t living in the early 20th Century, and the Great Lakes region of the country finally getting more attention than the Northeast or West Coast, one could be forgiven for thinking that we have entered a new era of sports fandom, a throwback to a simpler, nicer time. Not so fast.

We don’t have to tell you that it can cost a lot to go to a game. But after tickets, parking, food, drinks, and fan gear, have you ever added it all up?

The first step in solving a problem is admitting you have one in the first place. We laid out our hopes for the NHL to address concussions at the end of last season. So how is the league doing on its responsibility to protect its players? It's making progress — and making us hopeful.

I have been a St. Louis Rams my entire life. My family had season tickets to Rams games for nearly five years. Through all the consistently mediocre seasons, coaching changes, and poor decision- making, I stood by the Rams until the very end.

The Rio Olympics are shaping up to be quite the emotional roller coaster. Sports fans are getting ready to support their favorite athletes — and many we’ll be hearing about for the first time — as they chase Olympic glory for themselves and their country.

Soccer fans witnessed a major upset when Portugal beat France in the Euro 2016 final. And speaking of upset, that doesn't even begin to describe what the French fans looked like after losing to that smaller country to the south. Rioters arrested under the Eiffel Tower. Mon Dieu!

Over the past two weeks, sports fans everywhere have been submitting questions about the NFL's concussion cover-up. And now those questions are headed to the NFL's senior vice president for health and safety policy, Jeff Miller.

The good news: A committee of members of Congress is currently investigating concussions, including the long-term impact of head injuries sustained while playing football. The not-so-good news: The NFL's Gridiron PAC has contributed $310,000 to the campaigns of 43 of the 54 committee members, raising serious questions about their ability to be objective in their investigation.

It was a celebration 52 years in the making.
We are led by the fans, for the fans.
We fight to make sure our favorite sports put the fans first.
We call out the leagues and owners when they're greedy and dishonest.
We protect our favorite players to keep the game safe and exciting.
We spend our hard-earned money on tickets and jerseys,
so we have the power to make sports better when we work together.
We cheer, we scream, we speak out—
because we are sports fans, and we have a voice.
