Fan Controlled Football, a professional sports league that “empowers fans to make the key decisions for their favorite team, including calling all the plays in real-time,” this week announced Pullman Yards in the Pratt Pullman District will be the league’s home for Season v2.0.
Designed as a hub for sports and entertainment, the new state-of-the-art 1,500 seat site, totaling more than 85,000 square feet, will be the home for Fan Controlled Football throughout the league’s entire second season which takes the field on April 16, 2022.
To bring this live-sports production to life, Fan Controlled Football has once again teamed up with Crazy Legs Productions, the Atlanta-based full-service content creation company that also produced the league’s captivating inaugural season, which took place at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth.
“The new venue design will provide all Fan Controlled Football fans with a captivating and intimate sports-viewing experience where everyone’s a VIP, and closer to all the game action like never before experienced in professional football,” according to the announcement. The venue will include a mix of priority seating, suites, and field-level lounges, along with the fan’s ability to watch the action on the practice fields as players prep for the game.
To help provide a strong taste of Atlanta flavor, Fan Controlled Football and Pullman Yards will be working with local chefs, restaurants, musicians, artists, and organizations for providing food, beverage, entertainment, and interactive experiences at the venue on game day.
Tickets for Fan Controlled Football Season v2.0 will officially go on sale in the coming weeks.
Many of Fan Controlled Football’s teams have deep connections to the Atlanta area with team owners including hip-hop superstar Quavo, Atlanta Dream owner and former WNBA star Rene Montgomery, and former Atlanta Falcon Jamal Anderson.
Fan Controlled Football made its debut in February 2021, featuring four original teams: Beasts, Glacier Boyz, Wild Aces, and Zappers, owned by some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment including Marshawn Lynch, Richard Sherman, Austin Ekeler, Dalvin Cook, and Bob Menery.
“The league has redefined football for the digital age by combining the competitiveness of live sports, the engagement of fantasy sports, and the interactivity of video games into a live-streamed, leaned-in fan experience,” according to the announcement. Season v1.0 saw Fan Controlled Football become the “fastest growing” live sports channel on Twitch with nearly 10 million total live views, and one of the top sports Apps in the Apple App Store.
For Season v2.0, four new NFT expansion teams will join the league as part of FCF’s “Ballerz Collective” project, a first-of-its-kind NFT community. The four new teams will be owned by community leaders of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, Gutter Cat Gang, Knights of Degen, and Steve Aoki and 888.
