Support OVC Ball

Hey everyone,

Way back in 2011, I created OVC Ball as a site to connect fans of Ohio Valley Conference basketball and football. That site still runs today, and I’m looking at ways to expand our coverage beyond just box scores and analysis.

We’re looking at expanding into video, podcasting, and expanding our writers and possibly even the sports we cover.

It has been a lot of fun writing for everyone, coming up with new games (like Pick ‘Em and the upcoming Weekly Fantasy) and starting debates with many of you on twitter, but it has also been a tremendous amount of time and work. Any support would be beneficial in keeping the site up and running (which currently comes at a personal cost) and in enhancing and expanding our coverage.

The first way to support OVC Ball is through Patreon. Here, you can pledge a few bucks a month (several tiers are available) and even get a little bit of a reward, depending on your pledge.

You can also support us through a one-time donation through PayPal

Thank you for your support — and even if you don’t support us financially, thanks for taking the time to read my pitch to you.
