, Connect Sports and Fitness Buffs and connect people with shared passions.

Chicago, IL, October 03, 2006 --( Looking for a workout partner? Have an extra ticket for that football or hockey game because a friend had an 11th hour job emergency? Need some advice about that hamstring muscle you pulled while shooting hoops with some old college buds? 

If you're a sports or fitness buff, and connect people with shared passions for sports and fitness social networking, information exchange and more. 

Launched in 2004, and are tailored to singles of all ages, sports aficionados, families and others who take sports, physical fitness and fitness training seriously. 

According to Patricia Stewart, the company 's president who is based in Chicago, the services offered by SFM and FFM run the gamut of what a specialty website connecting people with shared passions should be. 

When joining either site, an individual creates a unique Member Profile with several options including posting a picture and their specific sports or fitness interests as well as networking options including finding workout and sports (e.g., tennis) partners either locally or in advance of traveling to another city. 

Both sites feature sports, fitness, training and nutrition articles and tips, member and couples' spotlights, and much more. The sites also feature a  dating service for singles. 

Both SportsFansMatch and FitnessFansMatch offer a free 3-day trial membership. A full-access, one-month individual membership—which allows access to both SFM and FFM—is $14.95. In addition, 3- and 6-month reduced rate memberships are also available when purchased in advance.
