It may sound a tad clichéd, but it’s true in this case: there is never a dull moment at Atlético Madrid. Because of that, it’s fun to write about the team’s on-and off-pitch exploits and there’s never a shortage of short news content or longform opinion and analysis.
Into the Calderón is currently looking for writers heading into a new season, one that should be very, very interesting for Atlético. The club is working through a registration ban and is set to embark on a new era with a new badge and a new stadium near Barajas Airport. It’s a pretty exciting time to be following Atleti, we’ve gotta say.
We are looking for writers who:
- Can be available and counted on for a 1-3 pieces of writing a week. However much you write is, in the end, up to you, but we need people who can be regular contributors.
- Can do some “quick hit” breaking-news type articles - usually no more than 250 words. These articles can be written in 20 minutes or so and can even have a bit of snap analysis at the end. This is the priority position for us at the moment.
- Understand and enjoy tactics and strategy and can break down a game with depth and in language that casual fans can understand. This applicant could carve out a place as our primary tactics writer and author of “Tactics Board” articles.
- Have opinions about Atlético and LaLiga and have no problem putting them down in writing and sharing them with the footballing world.
