We’re the network for fans

Nowhere else will you find the edgy, educated, and candid “fanpinions” that the FanSided Network dishes out each and every day, all year round. Fandom has no offseason. Neither do we. Sports and entertainment aren’t our jobs. Sports and entertainment are our lives.


Fansided is the fastest growing independent network of fandom-focused sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites on the Internet.

FanSided is a family business, launched by two brothers who wanted to put their own spin on the coverage of their beloved Kansas City Chiefs.

Today, the company is a thriving collection of over 280 communities dedicated to bringing together fans to share their common passions.

FanSided believes everyone is a fan of something. That is why we’ve collected the most passionate, knowledgeable and dedicated editorial voices to lead our sites. Our thought-leading content creators belong to the fandoms they cover, giving our sites the best team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage possible.

The results speak for themselves. FanSided has exploded in popularity in an era where people are using technology to connect, making it easy for fans to digest the content they want, when they want it across all of their favorite verticals.

And we’re just getting started.
