We're going to bring you authentic, on-the-ground coverage and insightful analysis. You'll have all the scores and stats you can handle. But here, we'll also never forget why we love sports in the first place — they're fun! They also offer respite, community and a place to belong.

So whether it's meeting superfans in augmented reality, a whimsical graphic novel, friendly banter on our signature "It's a Football Podcast!" or poetry in our Sports+ Lounge, we promise you a good time.

Click around, check it out and maybe even sign up for a newsletter. Or, hey, go really wild and join my SMS texting group. And don't forget to tell us what you love, what you need and how we can do better.

Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect from USA TODAY Sports+:

  • Premium sports reporting carefully curated from 300+ local, niche and national publications across the USA TODAY NETWORK.
  • Innovative coverage using emerging technologies, such as AR.
  • Exclusive access to our USA TODAY Sports+ insiders — Josina Anderson, Tyler Dragon and Safid Deen — who will deliver unique insight, powerful reporting and interactive experiences.
