    Ever fancied yourself as a commentator? Think you could bring Cardiff City matches to life for listeners? Alan March Sport want to hear from you!

    Alan March Sport’s audio describers are trained to keep up with play to the second and focus on the action - if something happens in the match, the listener will know exactly what happened, where it occurred and how it transpired.

    They’re giving people the opportunity to join their new specialist team delivering live, in-stadium commentary on all Cardiff City home matches for the 2019/2020 season.

    If you’re interested, drop them an email at [email protected] with the subject line “Cardiff City Commentary Application” including the following information:

    • Name
    • Age
    • Email address
    • Phone number
    • 100 words on why you think you’d be a great addition to the commentary team, working at CCS.

    Please note that incorrect applications may be rejected.

    You will receive training from Alan March Sport Ltd who provide commentators and training to UEFA, The FA, The Premier League, and have provided teams of commentators at the Rio 2016 and London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, as well the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Our teams currently work at Nottingham Forest, Southampton, Wrexham, Crawley, Mansfield Town, Wolves and Leicester City.

    You must be available on the 17th September 2019 for an all-day training session (9:30am-5:30pm) and be able to commit to roughly 75% of Cardiff City home fixtures. Applicants must be 16 years or older as of September 4th 2019. This isn’t a one-season project, Alan March Sport are looking for people to commit for as many seasons as they can and simply enjoy being a part of the Cardiff City Family.

    Closing date for applications is September 10th 2019 at 7pm. Alan March Sport reserve the right to close applications should they be oversubscribed, so get them in as early as possible!

    Please note this is not a position at Cardiff City FC, but for Alan March Sport on behalf of the Club.

    Good luck!

    Dai Hunt must be in the running for this.

    No doubt it’ll be a woman who gets the gig. It seems that’s the way football is heading. As long as it’s not that bint who appears in all those podcasts and stuff on the Twitters, her voice bloody grates on me.
