Expected to kick off in 2018, the Fan-Controlled Football League (FCFL) reimagines American football – and the experience of being a die-hard fan – for the digital age. The FCFL will seek to deliver a compelling football product that captivates a broader digital audience. It will feature fast-paced, high-scoring action that embraces the spread-football evolution of the NCAA football and NFL games while enabling a diverse set of styles and strategies on both offense and defense ─ all controlled by the fans. Player personnel and real-time play calling decisions are all made by fans via the league’s blockchain platform, making fans the coach and general manager for their team. Fans will no longer be just viewers; rather, they will be active contributors to the games they are watching. This is a transformational shift in the way sports fans engage and interact: no more sitting back and passively watching as a team’s roster takes shape or a game unfolds. They will be essential to the league’s product both on the field and off. This is the democratization of sports, and it’s about to be realized through the most innovative sports league ever created, thanks to decentralized blockchain technology.
