Write a sports guest post

We often get asked if we accept guest posts submissions, and we do as we believe our readers deserve to get a spectrum of views and sports news. Also, our staff writers are blinked on their preferred sports and teams, so we like to see others views.

If you submit an informative and high-quality sports article then we will promote you as the author, giving you exposure to a larger audience. If popular you could become a regular paid contributor to the sports blog. 

If you are interested in submitting a guest post, please contact us at info@sports-star.co.uk with your written article or submit via the contact form below.

We also accept article submissions where no credit is given.

We are always looking for regular contributors so if you want to write for a sports blog, just get in touch. All we ask for is a bit of transparency in your communication.

Please read the house rules below before submitting a sports guest post or an article for submission

Guest Post Guidelines

Length: A minimum of 500 words. We may split articles longer than 1500 into a series.
Paragraphs: Divide your content into clear and short paragraphs to make it more readable.

Links: All links out cannot breach google policy and should be informative. Please do not submit promotional links unless you have discussed this first. We mean this whole-heartedly, we love to help writers but if you spin a line that you are looking for exposure and try to sneak a promotional link in there you are just wasting your time.
Media:  If you have a preference on what copyright-free images you want to use, please include these with your article. This is vital that they are not copyrighted, and please do not just take images of other sites.

Guest posts content we like

Our readers come here for sports blogs, so they’re looking for articles that are interesting. It should be easy to read, informative, relevant, and engaging content. We welcome contrasting views and opinions on sports, and in particular the lesser-known sports. You can see all of our published posts in our sitemap.

Guest posts we don’t like

We don’t like guest posts that are promotional ads, this is not advertising space. You can advertise with us if that’s what you want to do. Please make sure the content is unique and respect other writers by not just copying from others. We also insist the articles are in English and well written to match our readers.

While we get that sports invoke emotion, and some players are subjected to abuse for poor performance, we don’t tolerate any derogatory, homophobic, misogynistic, or racist comments. We will not allow our website to be a platform for vitriol and ranting.

What we need if you write for us

House Rules

Be unique
All articles and posts should be your own creation. You can get inspiration from other sources you find in your research, but give credit and please be mindful of copyright laws. Our readers want engaging and interesting content, not re-hashes of other peoples hard work. We are one of many sports blogs that accept submissions and guest posts, so please don’t circulate the same work between us.

Be relevant
We’re a sports site, so that’s what our audience wants to see. We are happy to accept informational and interesting sports guest posts. We don’t want topics that are not sports related. That said, we have other sites that might suit that topic.

Be careful
All articles must be factual, and must not incite or defame and we will reject or edit offending articles. Being controversial and having strong opinions is fone, we will not censor you. But I’ll repeat we won’t publish anything if you are insulting, abusive, derogatory, homophobic, misogynistic, or racist. We will always Stand Up to Racism.
