IBWM hasn’t won multiple awards by accident and we haven’t reached millions of readers in over 150 countries for nothing. 

IBWM wants you

We've collaborated with over 800 talented writers, authors, journalists and bloggers who have contributed regular articles or one-off guest pieces. If you enjoy writing, IBWM is here for you to share your stories. No experience is necessary. We don’t need a CV.

What should I write about?

Football and assorted culture - our doors are open to well written articles on anything you like. Articles should be 1,000 words minimum and the more offbeat, the better. We’ll link your site, blog, book or Twitter on anything published. IBWM is part of the Guardian Sports Network and we work closely with World Soccer Magazine and many others too. 

I'm not a writer, can I be featured?

Of course! Whilst long-form, written articles are our bread and butter, we love to feature anything and everything from designers, illustrators, photographers and more.  Our Subculture pages are full of inspirational creatives who are passionate about the beautiful game. Got a similar project? Get in touch. 

Will I be paid for my submission?

This is a platform for sharing stories rather than a revenue driven business and, as such, we are unable to pay for submissions. However, we are regularly asked by large media outlets if articles can be published elsewhere for payment. If this is the case we'll put you in touch. Our reputation and connections are second to none and IBWM has been an outstanding platform for anyone looking to gain a foothold in a competitive industry. Write for us and you will get noticed. 

What do I do next?
