Welcome to the 3rd annual Women of Fantasy Football event from Club Fantasy FFL!
Women of Fantasy Football was designed to spotlight the women who provide commentary in the world of football in real life and fantasy. Over the first two years of this event, we've had personalities like ESPN's Stephania Bell, FOX sports' Laura Okmin, Yahoo Fantasy's Liz Loza, and Kate and Michelle Magdziuk of BallBlast Football, among others.
WOFF (as it's more affectionately known) is about promotion and awareness. We want people to understand women know the game of football just as well, if not better than, their male counterparts. We invite some of the brightest minds to our shows to learn more about them and the journeys they traveled to get to this point in their careers.
While we interview and celebrate these women, we organize a fundraising effort to support organizations that promote the ideology of women in sports. Over the first two years of our annual WOFF event, we raised over $3,800. We're upping the ante this year with a new partner in our efforts to highlight women in the world of football.
In March, Club Fantasy FFL and Women of Fantasy Football officially partnered with GALvanize, an organization fronted by FOX sports reporter Laura Okmin, to create a WOFF/GALvanize scholarship. The scholarship is designed to help pay the way for women who want to take part in a GALvanize boot camp of their choosing. The boot camps that Laura and GALvanize put together are in partnership with sports franchises across the country and are set up to give women a Master's class in the world of sports. They receive training and mentorship and instantly become part of a sisterhood unlike any other in the industry.
After months of talking and getting to know Laura and what GALvanize stands for, this partnership was a no-brainer. We're incredibly excited to help as many women as we can. And that help begins and ends with you!
If you're interested in helping us help a plethora of women earn careers in sports, sharing and/or donating goes a long way!
Help us pave the way for the next generation of sports personalities. Women of Fantasy Football is GALvanizing, and we won't be stopped!
