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

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!

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.

On Sunday, an extraordinary basketball season climaxed with the Game 7 matchup between basketball's top two stars. In the end, Lebron James dropped a triple-double as the Cavaliers edged Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors, earning the playoff MVP award and bringing a championship to Cleveland after the city endured more than half a century of pro sports futility. Now that we've caught our breath, let's look at two key issues facing the NBA that fans should be paying attention to this summer.

The NHL heads into its offseason on the heels of a thrilling playoff run that saw its brightest star, Sidney Crosby, add even more hardware to his trophy case as the Penguins put together a dominant run that ended a recent string of disappointing finishes.

A couple weeks ago, we put the owners of our favorite teams on watch. For too long, they've gotten away with anti-fan behavior — making profits more important than the fan experience, in ways big and small.

It's time to get some answers from the NFL.

Last week we heard about the NFL's attempts to influence government research into the long-term effects of football-related concussions. But this isn't the only thing the NFL has done recently to try to tilt the playing field in its favor.
June 03, 2016
It's a familiar story: The NFL is dead-set on denying the link between football and long-term damage from concussions, so it does whatever it takes to stack the facts in its favor. Except this time, the league got caught red-handed.

Team owners. The only words in sports that annoys us more than "TV Timeout." Owners make us pay an arm and a leg to see our favorite team, force us to foot the bill for new stadiums they should be paying for themselves, and price concessions on par with a five-star restaurant.

Last week we asked sports fans what they thought NFL owners should talk about during their spring meetings. Here are the three big issues that kept coming up, over and over again.
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.
