Chloe Beresford | Football Writer & Consultant

Our next guest is football writer, consultant and founder of Curva e Calcio, Chloe Beresford.

Tell us about yourself, what you currently do and how did you end up where you are right now?

I then became a full-time freelancer and have done work for Forbes, the iPaper, Tifo Football, AS Roma and lots more! I have also worked on a large project as a Serie A consultant. When the pandemic first hit, a lot of the freelance work dried up for obvious reasons and I decided to branch out on my own. I created a Substack newsletter (Curva e Calcio) which is made up of a newsletter and podcast for subscribers with the aim of giving people access to all the best news directly from the Italian papers, quality long reads on Italian football, in-depth retro podcasts and above all none of the frustrating adverts and click-bait style articles that are so common nowadays, especially when trying to keep up to date with a foreign league.

What does a normal week look like for you? I’m sure ‘Curva e Calcio’ takes up quite a lot of your time, is that the case?

When did you know you wanted to work in football?

What are your thoughts on the current state of the market for football writing freelancers?

What are you excited about in the industry at the moment?

What do you think are the key skills to being a successful football writer?

What general advice would you give to those individuals looking to pursue a football writing career?

Where do you see your career in the future? Are there any specific objectives you hope to achieve?

And finally Chloe, where can people find you on social media and check out your work?
