The Fan Controlled Football remains the only professional league of its kind — allowing fans to make decisions usually reserved for coaches. Let’s get ready for Season 2.
On Tuesday, Fan Controlled Football revealed dates and details for its second season of play, which begins April 16 and will feature four games from the league’s eight teams.
The league will still play in Atlanta’s Pratt-Pullman Yards, but big changes are coming inside the venue — FCF has added a production studio that will allow it to welcome fans for the first time ever. The complex, a 27-acre, 12-building property that has been used for hit movies like Baby Driver, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Fast 5, will offer a host of new amenities and experiences.
As for the first-ever fans being brought to Atlanta, gameday fan experience passes are broken down into five categories:
- General Admission, $20: A spot in the standing room only section
- Reserved Seating, $50: An assigned seat inside the studio
- VIP Fan Experience, $99: VIP access to celebrity owner groups and players, pre- and postgame field and locker room access, and priority passes for playoff action and the championship
- Suite Package, $1,750: Experience Gameday Passes (including 20 single-session passes), VIP access to celebrity owner groups and players, a private tour of the venue, pre- and postgame field and locker room access, playoff/championship priority passes, and four VIP parking passes. But the suite package is not the crown jewel for FCF fans.
- BALLERZ, $5,000: The most coveted ticket, the package comes with an official pregame party featuring all-inclusive premium food and beverages, live entertainment, 2 hotel rooms for 2 nights at a league hotel (Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel), 4 all-access passes to the owner’s suite for both afternoon and evening sessions, leading the team out onto the field, performing the coin flip, pre- and postgame field and locker room access, a merchandise package from the FCF Team Store, and an autographed FCF game ball
FCF also closed a $40 million funding round led by Animoca Brands and Delphi Digital.
- The Bored Ape Yacht Club, owned by a group including TropoFarmer, Josh Ong, Jerseyborn, Franklin, Lindsey Byrnes, BenJammin, NFTsAnonymous, Jeff Nicholas, and Spr3adsh33t
- The Gutter Cat Gang, led by King BlackBored, Dr. Dicatrio, Vivek Ravishanker, SpottieWiFi, and Jamal Anderson
- Team 8OKI, led by Steve Aoki and 888
- Knights of Degen led by founders and community members such as Tiki Barber, Ronde Barber, Jerry Ferrara, Cynthia Frelund, Jasmine Maietta, and Drew Austin
The last announcement before unveiling the season schedule saw viral Instagram comedian Druski added to the ownership group led by Los Angeles Charger running back Austin Ekeler for the team formerly known as the Wild Aces. The reigning champions are now known as Shoulda Been Stars.
After making moves in hopes of having a second season that is much larger and more successful than its first rendition, Fan Controlled Football is in the final countdown until kickoff.
