Opportunity for young OWs looking to get into Sports Media

12 September 2016

I wanted to email regarding a possible opportunity for young OWs looking to get into Sports media, in particular Rugby. My business partner and I have recently launched a Fantasy game for the sport of Rugby Union where participants are able to bet on real players for a number of competitions every week. The game is a slightly different format to the traditional fantasy games.

We also run a blog section on our site which we are looking to build out and wondered if any OWs studying sports journalism or interested in the sport would be interested in writing blogs for us based on the Aviva Premiership, Pro12 & 6 Nations on a weekly basis. We hold access to vast player data which may be of interest but the opportunity would be a good experience for those getting into the industry.

Alternatively if anyone would like to sign up and play feel free to do so here: statbacker.com

If this is something that may sound of interest please email me: sam@statbacker.com
