At Ninety-Nine Yards: American Football for UK fans, we’re looking for volunteer writers with a strong understanding of the game and who are able to provide original opinions.
All you need is a passion for the game and a eagerness to write. We’d like you to contribute two posts per week at a minimum during the season and 1 during the off-season, as well as bring ideas as part of a team. Knowledge of WordPress would be useful but not essential.
To start you will contribute 8-10 articles as guest pieces, so we can understand your style of writing and for you to decide whether it’s something you’d like to be a part of.
When this has been completed, you will receive access to the site and your own profile on the about us page.
Please note that while this is not a paid position and all roles are voluntary, there are incredible opportunities for you to have you work seen by a large following, you will have the chance to join in podcasts, attend NFLUK game training camps, and also the opportunity to interview stars of the game who recently have included Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Walter Jones, pundits Mike Carson, Marc Sessler and Nate Burleson, current players such as Stefon Diggs, Tyron Mathieu, Chris Long and many many more….
