NFL Alumni is pleased to announce a partnership with the Female Fan Association (FFA) to increase membership, sponsorship and brand awareness regarding our great sport among women.
"For most of my professional life I’ve wanted to empower women,” said Laurie Voke, Founder/ CEO of Female Fan Association. “My dream has been to have a best in class platform to achieve this goal. The Female Fan Association is just such a vehicle. We strive to provide the most fun and unique experiences to our female members incorporating their common passion in following their favorite sports. We provide inside access into the teams, players and facilities that are not open to the general public. We host events specifically targeted for our members that are unique and work within their busy schedules. We supply useful information to help promote and empower women and we curate and offer sports fan products specifically tailored to meet our female member’s needs. Joining is free yet the experience is priceless.”
The Female Fan Association’s mission is to unite all women who are interested in professional sports in a common community. The Association offers a social platform that fosters and promotes the fan experience in the prominent professional leagues. The FFA also provides a place for women to come together and celebrate their love for sports while at the same time saving them time and money with exclusive access, discounts, and events. Key membership benefits are local monthly VIP events, digital content (including a monthly magazine) and a weekly snapshot of fans’ favorite team activities. All programming is designed to provide unparalleled experiences for women.
“Sports has been described, as the last great campfire, bringing friends and families together as reliably as church,” said Voke. “Our partnership with the NFL Alumni will rocket fuel our ability to scale and unite the millions of female fans in the United States in a very meaningful way. There is no doubt, women are critical to the success of the local teams and leagues, as they are the alpha consumer and hold the power of the purse."
FFA is the first national leader in innovative female sports fan communities/clubs. Recognized for mobilizing, advocating, and revolutionizing female fan engagement through access, community and empowerment. The FFA community provides a forum for its voice to be heard. Not only a place where the sports world can get an opinion, but also where the members can band together in a volunteer FFA network to make a difference in their local communities.
“We are pleased to partner with the Female Fan Association as we continue to address the importance of increasing access and opportunities for females surrounding the game of football,” said Elvis Gooden, Interim CEO of NFL Alumni. “With FFA’s help, we will be able to engage more with our female members and make them aware of all the great benefits that are available to them.”
NFL Alumni is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year and continues to assist and inform retired players and coaches in their post-NFL lives. The Alumni offers medical, financial, and social programs to keep members and their families healthy, productive, and connected.
