The FAN Is Sports History!

For over a century, sports fans have remained isolated, ignored, and exploited.   Owners don't care that fans are being priced out of a game.  Players don't want to hear, "Nobody listens to the fan."  


Those days are over!  


The FAN is a one-of-a-kind membership community, with political and charitable action arms for the 21st century sports fan.  Whether the issue is stadium security, ticket prices and commissions, rule changes, relocation of teams, taxpayer financing of new arenas, or the legality of fantasy sports or internet poker, sports fans will finally become a represented “special interest group.”


With numbers and a “Membership is Power" mantra, The FAN will offer additional benefits:  rewards and discounts, interesting and important sports content, interactive contests and surveys to direct our lobby.  “The FAN” is a unique opportunity to create relationships amongst our members and our corporate partners and change the landscape of sports.  “The FAN” will be your voice to represent and empower you in the complex $2 trillion dollar global sports industry.

Why The FAN?

The Founder

The Founder and Governors of “The FAN” are a diverse group of passionate, sports-loving, and successful professionals and entrepreneurs devoted to making our unique membership community a vital capitalistic democracy for our “member-citizens.”

Andrew Kopel

Attorney, Warriors Season Ticket Holder

Andy was the first Executive Director of the Calif. Gaming Assoc., representing the non-legal interests of casino owners.  A one-time poker dealer, he became a gaming industry expert and reformer, representing low-wage casino workers by filing consumer class action lawsuits.   


Whether at the game or on the couch, Andy breathes Golden State Warriors basketball.  As a season ticket holder and Santa Clara Univ. Law School grad, Andy now combines passions for sports and consumer advocacy, to become the Founder of The F.A.N.

Andy is not alone in his mission to empower the powerless sports fan. He is joined by a growing network of consumer rights professionals, journalists, attorneys and executives all sharing a vision to give the fans a fair shake in an industry that ignores its most faithful.
