Biography

The Fighting Cock is a podcast, website, fanzine and supporters’ movement that has been running since 2011. We’re a bunch of mates who love Tottenham and have found that the way we talk about our football club resonates with at least a section of our support. We’re not broadcasters or media professionals; we’re fans who press record on a mic and speak. Naturally as a media producer aimed at football fans, we get approached by a lot of betting sponsors. We’ve always judged each by their merits. When FansBet approached us however, it seemed like a perfect match. The Fighting Cock has always kept fan culture at the forefront of what we do. We only aim to replicate the discussions that are had among football fans and get together to record them for our listeners. We’ve produced movements and campaigns to encourage the betterment of both the matchday-going fan, and those that watch from afar through television or the internet.

I hope that the relationship continues between The Fighting Cock and FansBet as it’s a rare thing to find a company with solid values and the foresight to support grassroots fan media outlets.

The idea that a betting company would give away half of its profits to improve the game that we all love was completely refreshing, and when they agreed to support The Fighting Cock for a full season it meant that we were afforded the opportunity to grow the podcast and transform the dream of producing what we consider to be authentic Tottenham content into a living. In addition, it meant that we could offer Tottenham fans the opportunity to be involved in more The Fighting Cock Socials, a monthly event we put on where Spurs fans come together to watch meaningful away ties. Usually we’d have to charge £5 entry, but FansBet saw the value in this and agreed to front the cost of a number of Socials so our supporters could get in for free.
