Match Reports

Writing Tips

If you know you will be writing a match report, remember to take a pen and paper to the game, or use your smartphone or tablet to make notes.

To save time, try to get hold of the team selection or a list of players before the start of the game. You can then add notes next to each name or shirt number.

Always make sure to use an attention grabbing headline and tagline to bring visitors to your match report.

Finally, always take a camera. Publishing photos with your match report will instantly increase the number of views.

Why should you write a match report?


Though writing a match report can be daunting at first, a fixture really would not be complete without it. Match reports are a great way to motivate players, and engage with new and existing supporters at your club.

Existing and potential sponsors may also be looking through match reports to check the progress of the club, and pinpoint any players that they may want to sponsor.

Match reports will boost the overall traffic to your website by bringing in supporters. Match reports are also shareable on Facebook and Twitter.

This increase in traffic will rank your website higher in search engines such as Google, which will increase promotion of your website and make it easier to find.
