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.
What qualifies someone to be the FanSided Sports Fan of the Year?
The FanSided Sports Fan of the Year is a person who exemplifies dedication, integrity and “Fansmanship” all for the love of the game.
What is “Fansmanship”? Just as athletes exhibit and strive for good sportsmanship, fans strive to exhibit good Fansmanship. Good Fansmanship means representing the teams you follow and the communities those teams represent in a positive way at all times thus perpetuating all that is good about sports and sports fandom. Every fan has a story. We want to hear yours.
I’m interested, but how can I participate?

Each finalist will receive a one-year subscription to Sports Illustrated and will be profiled on FanSided.com. 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!
