Surrounded by Encouragers Philippians 3:10-14 Hebrews 12:1-3 Anyone in sports (regardless to whether they’re an athlete, fan, coach or commentator) can testify to the reality of “home field” advantage. And it doesn’t really matter what “sport” we’re talking about... Home field advantage can literally be a game changer. And stats bear this fact out. Most established teams post a much better winning percentage at home - on their home court or field... compared to games played away or on a neutral site. When a team has a crowd of fanatics (which is where the term “fan” comes from, by the way) cheering them on, they can often outplay their ability. We’ve all witnessed it... to some degree.
