For three seasons, Power of Sports aired monthly on FOX Sports Southwest and participating FOX Sports regional networks.
A monthly 30-minute television show presented by Group1001, Power of Sports shared inspiring stories of people, organizations and communities connecting through sports to create opportunities for youth to join teams and find the motivator they need to go to school, stay in school and prepare for life beyond the classroom.
Hosted by sports industry insider Rick Horrow, Power of Sports pulled viewers into conversations with industry thought leaders to understand how different sports and business organizations create grassroots opportunities to engage youth and help drive positive social change. Each month’s show was filmed in a different U.S. city, showing us what’s possible when people work together for the greater good of others.

We understand how important it is to embrace the communities where we do business and empower those communities to make a measurable impact. Currently, Group1001 is an active participant in Fields & Futures, a program that serves Oklahoma City Public Schools Athletics in their mission to grow student participation in sports by rebuilding athletic fields. The program provides improved resources and professional development for the district and gives each kid that steps on the field, court, or track a greater opportunity for a brighter future. Through the “A Field to Call Home” segment on the monthly TV show Power of Sports, we had an incredible opportunity to celebrate these amazing stories to remind us there are children all across the country who, if given a chance, want to get in the game. It is our hope this show inspired and empowered its viewers to find ways they can help the communities they call home.
