SFC is a grassroots, member-supported sports fans advocacy organization. We’re made up of sports fans who want to have a say in how the sports industry works, and to put fans first.
We have one goal: to give you a seat at the table whenever laws or public policy impacting sports are being made.
Professional sports leagues are multi-billion dollar industries with armies of lobbyists in Washington, D.C., state capitols, and city halls around the country. The fans who actually buy the tickets, watch the games, wear the merchandise, and make the system work, however, don’t have such representation. What’s this look like?
We spend hundreds of millions of tax dollars on new stadiums. Why can’t we afford some good tickets?
Why is the NFL giving campaign contributions to members of Congress investigating concussion research?
Why are team owners getting away screwing over fans?
Why can my neighbor who gets TV from one company watch my local sports team, but those of us who get TV from another company can’t?
The answer has nothing to do with you and everything to do with the multi-billion dollar sports and media industries that control the game — literally. Fans don’t have a seat at the table when decisions are being made and the results have been fabulous for the sports industry.
It’s time to change all that, and it starts with Sports Fans Coalition.
