Portage Sports is designed to provide coverage without a paywall, because we understand that not everyone is in a position to pay for news. Without a millionaire owner like other media outlets, we rely on the ongoing generosity of those that can afford it.
With your support, Portage Sports can remain a reliable source for local news and will continue to invest back in the communities it so passionately writes about.
