The biggest competition in football kicks off on June 12th and BackPageFootball is looking for contributors to make our coverage of the tournament bigger and better before.
From mid-May, our primary focus will be on the World Cup finals in Brazil and our aim is to put together a team of writers to work with us between then and the tournament’s conclusion on July 13th.
We won’t be previewing specific games or running match reports, the big boys have all that covered, and instead we want writers from all over the world to create captivating features.
Some of the areas we want covered are:
One 2 Watch – World Cup edition
Our One 2 Watch series has proven to be very popular having looked at the likes of Alen Halilovic, Luke Shaw, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lucas Moura and Gerard Deulofeu before they were famous. Is there a hidden gem going to Brazil who people may not be aware of? Tell us all about them.
Feel good stories
These crop up around every major tournament, usually around a player who has taken a different path to where they are now. Do some digging, uncover the past, and let our readers know their story.
Great moments in World Cup history
Take us back in time by looking at some of the biggest events from yesteryear.
Nation by nation previews
Is there a particular country you want to preview for us? First in, best dressed so be prepared to not necessarily get the one you want!
The above are just some of our ideas so we’re open to other suggestions as always.
If you want to get involved, drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org (put “BPF World Cup” in the subject line) with some details about yourself and what you think you can bring to the table.
No tyre kickers, we want to give our readers content that will get them in the mood for what promises to be an exciting month of football!
The closing date for expressions of interest is Monday, May 5th.
