Working In Football Media? Good Relationships With The Players Produces Good Content. A Couple Of Video Examples From The UEFA Champions League.

The videos below were filmed prior to The New Saints FC’s UEFA Champions League game at home to FC Copenhagen. With BT Sports filming the players as they arrived, Simon Spender and Ryan Harrington were walking down the corridor to the changing room. You can hear Simon say, “Good that, Rev, modelling.”

The other clip is when the players were on the pitch warming-up ahead of the match itself. The conversation was instigated by Simon and totally spontaneous. It’s the sort of behind-the-scenes insight that fans like to watch. It also comes when players feel comfortable with media. Notice how many times they use ‘Rev’ in the conversation.

The more relaxed people are with us, the better the content. It’s not just football media, of course, but a general principle in life.
