Commentators needed to cover 18/19 season

World Cup fever has gripped the nation, and few things spark more debate during tournaments than the commentators. Everyone has an opinion, but could you do better?

Southampton FC are launching a brand new commentary service for season 2018/19 and we are looking for commentators. Alan March Sport Ltd, who have trained and provided commentators for the Premier League, The FA, UEFA, and the last two Olympic Games, as well as currently operating similar schemes across numerous Premier League and Football League clubs, will provide the training.

To apply, send an email to detailing, in no more than 100 words, why you’d make a good commentator for Southampton FC. Your application must also include your full name, date of birth and a contact telephone number, as well as an audio clip of you commentating.

The clip should be somewhere between 45-90 seconds long and can be your version of a past event or some fictional commentary, we just need to hear you in action! Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Please note, applicants must be 16 years of age or over and must be available for the initial training day on Monday 20 August and for additional training at Saints’ home fixture vs Leicester City on Saturday 25 August.

Applications will no longer be accepted after 5pm on Friday 10 August. We reserve the right to close the applications early once we have received a sufficient number of applicants, so we advise you to submit your application early to prevent disappointment.
