FanSided is Looking for its Next Sports Fan of the Year
By Kevin Henry
FanSided, the parent company of Rox Pile, is looking for its Sports Fan of the Year. Could this year’s winner be someone who roots for the Colorado Rockies?
From now until 11:59 p.m. on November 4, 2016, fans will have a chance to enter the Sports Fan of the Year competition. Voting will begin on November 7 and a grand prize winner will be announced on November 18. You can check out all of the official rules here.
We all know how important fans are to the game. Here’s a quote from the FanSided contest entry article, detailing why the brand is recognizing one lucky fan.
Imagine Lou Gehrig giving his farewell speech to a vacant Yankee Stadium or Michael Jordan hitting “The Shot” in front of empty seats. Without the fans, there is no roar, there is no electricity, there is no glory.
Last year, we decided it was finally time to recognize the nameless faces watching from the bleachers when we named Dennis Gleason the inaugural Sports Fan of the Year.

Do you have what it takes to take home the prize this year? Five finalists will be named. Each of those five finalists will receive a one-year subscription to Sports Illustrated and will be profiled on FanSided.com.
So what does the FanSided Sports Fan of the Year receive? The grand prize winner will win a three-day trip to New York City to attend the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year event on December 12th. How about that?
