March 27, 2024

On December 13th, Sports Fans Coalition, in partnership with the National Consumers League launched the #MonumentalDisaster campaign to oppose the publicly financed move of the Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals to Alexandria. Nearly 3,000 sports fans signed our petition telling lawmakers to oppose the deal. Shortly thereafter, we partnered with the Coalition to Stop the Arena (STA) to support a powerful, growing grassroots movement to push back against a billionaire, the local political machine, and the Governor. 

Congress and the DOJ Must Act to Protect Sports Fans from Streaming Monopoly

March 26, 2024

For decades, broadcast and cable have been the primary way fans engage with their teams. More and more though, that fandom is moving away from the traditional media consumption and to the screens of phones and tablets. While we fans are fixated on the competition on the field, there’s a much higher-stakes competition going on that could reshape how we watch and pay for our favorite games.

Sports Fans Coalition Statement on #MonumentalDisaster being excluded from the VA budget bill

March 07, 2024

"Every sports fan loves an underdog story, and today is no exception. Sports Fans Coalition applauds the Virginia General Assembly budget conferees for not including any language regarding the Monumental Sports & Entertainment arena proposal," said Brian Hess, Executive Director of Sports Fans Coalition. "There were many problems with this proposal, including spending billions in taxpayer funding, poor fan experience regarding traffic, and the myriad of conflicts of interests and questionable foreign sovereign wealth fund investments between Ted Leonsis and Governor Youngkin. Throughout the entire process, Senator Louise Lucas stood as a champion for sports fans across the commonwealth and exemplified unparalleled courage in the face of seemingly impossible odds. We urge the General Assembly to continue rejecting this 'half-baked' proposal."
