Football Writing Jobs
Whether you’re looking for a career in football journalism, want to earn some money from your writing about your passion or just want a chance to share your thoughts about your favourite team, there are plenty of opportunities to get started as a writer / blogger in the online football industry.
Here’s a list of football websites where you can apply for a writing gig:
Soccerlens is one of the biggest football blogs in the industry and currently has over 50 contributing and permanent bloggers writing for them every month. Their mantra is that ‘you can never have enough good writers’ and as a result they are always looking to expand their writing staff with quality writers.
Soccerlens is also the flagship for the Football Media network and since 2006 has become a ‘finishing school’ for bloggers, with many of their writers going on to setup hugely popular fan blogs (nufcblog.com, redrants.com, fcbnews.com) or writing professionally for sites like Goal.com.
The selection criteria is very stringent at Soccerlens but if you think you’re a fairly good writer and you want a shot at reaching millions of football fans every month, apply to write for Soccerlens.com.
