Company Summary

Fans that don't live in the city of their favorite team are disconnected from the emotional energy that fuels their fandom--mostly the energy of fellow fans. Our communities connect those fans with each other (online and offline) so they can share analysis, photos, stories, news, excitement and nostalgia. While most sports media outlets focus on the 18-34 year-old male fan, we focus on all demos, including female and older fans.
