FanBank has created an exciting marketplace where big-name brands and local, independent businesses come together to engage consumers in a whole new way. By seizing on consumer desire to “shop local,” the FanBank marketplace creates a reason for these shoppers to support locally-owned merchants.
Local businesses take advantage of an array of marketing collateral and programs which help them generate sales, consumer excitement and loyalty. Consumers are rewarded with a common currency, FanCoins, for spending their money with participating, locally-owned and operated businesses. Consumers can then spend their FanCoins right back in their communities at the same locally-owned businesses or on other experiences offered by sought-after brands and community attractions covering sports, entertainment and more. With FanBank, "Everybody Wins."

The Memphis Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) club promotes the Irish sports of hurling and Gaelic football in the Memphis community. The club was founded in 2015 by Jesse Gammons, a Graduate Research Assistant at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, who was an active player in the Nashville GAA club before moving to Memphis. Dermot Murray, originally from Ireland, took over as Club Chairman after Jesse moved away in late 2016.
Gaelic football and hurling are the most popular sports in Ireland (far more than soccer or rugby) and is played by Irish and non-Irish people all over the world. Think of Gaelic football as a cross between soccer and basketball, and hurling as a cross between field hockey and lacrosse.
The club is planning to host a co-ed adult Spring 2017 “pub league” for Gaelic football from March through May, with four teams sponsored by The Brass Door (Madison Ave), Celtic Crossing (Cooper Young), The Majestic Grille (South Main St.) and Murphy’s Bar (Madison Ave). No previous experience or special equipment is necessary to sign-up for the league – all will be provided by the club (including training on how to play both sports).
