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 high school, college, semi-pro and pro athletic events LIVE ONLINE since August of 2012.  SFBN has covered sports such as football, field hockey, soccer, tennis and volleyball in the Fall, basketball, swimming & diving and water polo in the Winter, and baseball, softball, rugby and lacrosse in the Spring.

Starting in 2012, SFBN focused on covering the Philadelphia Public and Catholic Leagues, but since then we have also covered games in the Philly area in the Inter-Ac League, Friends League, Suburban One League, Ches-Mont League, the Del-Val League and the Pioneer Athletic Conference. 


SFBN has also expanded high school coverage to the Lehigh Valley with D11 Sports covering the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference, the Colonial League and the Schuylkill League.  Our network has also covered games in other neighboring states like New Jersey, Maryland and Rhode Island.

SFBN started coverage of collegiate athletics with West Chester University in 2014 and Widener University in 2017.  Coverage of semi-pro athletics includes the Perkiomen Valley Twilight Baseball League, the Maryland Lacrosse League and the American Basketball Association (ABA) and we have also covered arena football with the Philadelphia Yellow Jackets and Jersey Flight.


SFBN also has experience in live talk show and live-to-tape talk show production.  From 2014-2017, SFBN produced Varsity Voice - a high school sports talk show - for Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia and The Comcast Network (TCN).  In 2017 and 2018, we produced a weekly lineup of sport-specific high school sports talk shows that aired live on Facebook. Shows included 'In the Trenches' (football), 'On the Mat' (wrestling) and 'In the Paint' (basketball). 

In addition to all our sports coverage, SFBN has provided live video streaming services for other events like high school graduations, recitals and company meetings.
