A sports advocacy organization by fans, for fans.

Every Fan Deserves a Voice.

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.

July 20, 2016
