FansUnited.org, Inc. is a two-pronged sports technology startup whose overarching goal is to put power into the hands of sports fans. It accomplishes this goal via two separate and distinct platforms that complement each other:
- FansUnited.org is a nonprofit organization designed to give fans a voice at both the local and national levels. Every major city in the US and Canada with a major league franchise will have a local chapter that serves to aggregate their preferences and build local fan consensus around key issues. This includes issues like stadium funding, relocation, ticket policies, financial transparency, etc. — all things that sports fans have been grappling with for decades. The leaders (mayors) of these 42 chapters will sit on the Sports Policy Institute, a national organization that works with the teams, leagues and congress to establish fair and reasonable, fan-centric sports policies. Complete with a Fans Bill of Rights, FansUnited.org will serve as America’s first online democracy.
- A for-profit social media company, ernie.com, where every fan will have their own locker room, teammates (sports friends and family), pictures, etc. Sports fans can also access curated sports content and fan-to-fan interaction via blog posts, multimedia, messaging, and player interaction. It will be the most comprehensive sports website on the internet. Additional capabilities will be implemented in ernie.com 2.0!
