So, you want to own a football team? Well, guess what – now you can! Fans now have the opportunity to join their favorite team owners in our Owners’ Box. Today we announced a first-of-its-kind campaign with Republic, a leading private investment platform that will allow fans to invest and own a portion of any of the four teams in the FCF.
Starting today, YOU can own a piece of the Beasts, Glacier Boyz, Wild Aces or the Zappers (or all four if you really want to). We know, we know – this is absolutely insane (and totally better than any other football team that gives you a certificate for being an “owner”), but let’s say it together: Power to the Fans!
“FCF is reinventing sports for the digital age and giving fans access and control to run a professional league like never before,” said Sohrob Farudi, Co-Founder and CEO of Fan Controlled Football. “Teaming with Republic to provide this historic opportunity to own a piece of any of our four franchises was the next logical step in offering our fans unprecedented access and control in the FCF.”
“We invested in Fan Controlled Football because we believe this is the future of interactive sports, where URL meets IRL.” explained Jeremy Liew, Partner at Lightspeed Ventures. “Fans are excited about having a voice in everything from drafting players to calling offensive plays. Letting them become not just managers, but part owners of their team, is the logical next step. Until now, team ownership has been reserved only for billionaires and celebrities. FCF is truly letting fans in on every aspect of professional sports teams.”
In the true forward-thinking nature of our league, our partnership marks the first-time fans and investors can become equity stakeholders of any team across a professional sports league and the first sports initiative for Republic.
Live the fan’s dream and become a team owner today!
