The Sports Fan Base Network (SFBN) is an online sports network owned by Amusement, Recreation, Imagination, Inc. based just outside of Philadelphia, PA.  SFBN has been streaming Philadelphia area high school athletic events LIVE ONLINE on our website since August 2012.  We have covered football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, tennis and volleyball.


SFBN mainly covers the Philadelphia Public and Catholic Leagues, but also covers leagues including the Inter-Ac, Suburban One, Ches-Mont and the Friends League, among others.


Beginning in August 2014, SFBN produces a high school sports talk show for The Comcast Network (TCN) on cable TV in the Philadelphia area.  During 2014-2015, the first season of the show was entitled SFBN Talks High School Sports.  SFBN Talks aired every other Wednesday at 6 PM discussing a variety of sports, teams and leagues in the Philadelphia area high school sports community.


Since August 2015, the show has been renamed 'Varsity Voice presented by SFBN' and was aired every other Wednesday at 6pm, with a replay airing at 10:30pm.  Starting 2017, the show will run between September and June during the school year and will be streamed LIVE on Facebook every Wednesday evening (unless scheduling conflicts occur).

SFBN is proud to cover Philadelphia area high school athletics and has expanded to cover more athletics around Pennsylvania, south New Jersey and Rhode Island and feature the great student-athletes of our area.  Please browse our website to learn more about our team, view our broadcast schedule, watch live and previously aired games and view past episodes of our TV show.
