As a sports fan, the teams you root for help define who you are. Your teams define your rivalries, your heroes, your good years and your bad years. The whole point of your Facebook profile is to tell people about yourself, so as a sports fan it only makes sense to add the sports teams you follow to your profile. Not only will it add the team to the interests that display on your Facebook Timeline, but it also lets Facebook know to incorporate content from that team into your news feed. All you have to do is "Like" the team on Facebook.

Step 1

Sign in to your Facebook profile, then click the "Edit Profile" link near the top of the left sidebar.

Step 2

Scroll down the next page until you see the "Likes" section, then type the name of the sports team into the search bar.

Step 3

Select the team you want to add from the list of teams appearing below the text field. This will make your account "Like" the team and add it to your profile.
