About the competition:

Calling all young sports fans. The Guardian has opened a competition for young sports writers and the winner could see their piece published in the newspaper.

The newspaper has teamed up with Alex Bellos & Ben Lyttleton, football expert and creators of the bestselling Football School series, to create the competition.

To enter you need to write a 600-word match report on any sporting event, or a 600-word player profile about a sportsperson of your choice.

There are two categories, 7-9 and 10-12. The winners of each age category will win:

  • A once in a lifetime opportunity to watch a Premier League football game as a journalist in the press box
  • Their entry published by The Guardian
  • A signed bundle of Football School books and goodies

The two runners-up in each category will win a signed bundle of Football School books and goodies.

The competition kicks off on 2nd April 2019 and closes at 6pm on the 19th May 2019.

To enter, visit the Football School competiton homepage where you will also find some activities, videos and information about the books.
