Sports Fans Coalition has long advocated for better live event ticketing legislation that would improve transparency, promote competition, and reduce fraud. The issues that plague sports fans when they try to purchase a baseball ticket or resell that ticket because they can no longer make the game are not new to sports fans. Fortunately, in the past couple of years, many states have heard SFC's plight and have made significant improvements to their marketplaces.

This week, the House Energy & Commerce and Senate Commerce Committees will hold hearings on the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act Reauthorization (STELAR), which allows Satellite TV companies to distribute out-of-market local broadcast TV signals in limited situations, such as where a small market lacks a network affiliate. So, if you live in a rural area without a local affiliate, you can still keep up with your sports by watching a neighboring market's station.
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.
