The “Authentic Fanuary” initiative, developed in-house at CSN, builds on the “Home of Authentic Bay Area Sports” brand campaign that the regional sports network first introduced in 2008, which later grew to include the “Home of the Authentic Fan.”  The multi-year enterprise is aimed at communicating the network’s core message: “We Connect Fans with the Teams They Love.”

Since the re-launch of Comcast SportsNet (from Fox SportsNet) in 2008, the “Home of Authentic Bay Area Sports” mantra has been a mainstay of the network’s on-air and online coverage.  To establish a connection with local fans, the network has partnered with the Giants, A’s, Warriors, Kings, Sharks, 49ers, Raiders and Earthquakes to host game-day fan events at the teams' stadiums and arenas. These relationships have naturally evolved into the original mantra of “The Home of the Authentic Fan."  Annually, CSN hosts an average of 150 events for fans. Year-to-date, CSN has given out nearly 160,000 premium items and over 3 million “Cheer Cards.”

CSN Bay Area and CSN California, both part of NBC Sports Regional Networks, serve more than four million households in Northern California, Nevada, Southern Oregon and Hawaii. CSN Bay Area, the television home of MLB’s San Francisco Giants, NBA’s Golden State Warriors, and the official regional sports network of the San Francisco 49ers, also features a robust lineup of Emmy Award-winning news, analysis and original programming. CSN California offers live coverage of MLB’s Oakland Athletics, NBA’s Sacramento Kings, NHL’s San Jose Sharks, MLS’s San Jose Earthquakes and is the official regional sports network of the Oakland Raiders.
