Based in Phoenix, FanRagSports.com was created in early 2012. A series of sub-sites (URLs below) operate on the FanRagSports.com platform.

Content is originated by paid writers and all stories go through an editing process before being published. FanRagSports has had credentialed writers cover events including the World Series, NLCS, Final Four and College Football Playoff.
Current writers and editors on the staff have previously worked for outlets including ESPN, the Denver Post, CBS Sports and FOX Sports.
The site has passed 1 million unique visitors per month.
