April 27, 2013 - PRLog -- Many athletes who dream of being at the top of their sport face a tremendous amount of financial strain. Some athletes work full time while training 4-5 hours per day; others rely on family and friends, sponsors, fundraisers, or online crowdsourcing.

In an effort to ease the financial burden of it’s athletes, Aggression Fighting Championships (AFC), has developed a new initiative. “We are always looking for new ways to support our fighters,” says Steve Fader, President of AFC.

The new initiative called The AFC Fight Fan Faction, allows Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) enthusiasts to support their favourite AFC fighter. Fight fans can now be a part of their favourite athlete’s journey by contributing to their fight camp.

“Our fighters train really hard and for long hours. My hope is that the AFC Fight Fan Faction can alleviate some of the stress that comes along with that so our fighters can focus on what they love to do,” says Fader. In addition to funds being used for the athlete’s training camp, a portion of the money is directed to the athlete’s favourite charity.

Fans can visit the online tool and choose which fighter they would like to support. When any donation over $50 is made to an athlete’s training camp, the user receives a signed t-shirt, an AFC poster, and a certificate of donation.

The AFC Fight Fan Faction can be viewed at http://aggressionfc.com/fight-fan-faction/  

Steve Fader, AFC representatives, and AFC athletes are available for interview by phone, in-person, or in writing.
