Become a champions journalist

We’re looking for fan reporters from each of the 16 teams that have qualified for the knockout stage. Our favourite article will be printed in issue 11 of Champions Journal, with the rest appearing on the website. And if you’re one of the winners, we’ll also ask you to report back on your team for Champions Journal for as long as they stay in the competition.
What could you win?
  • Your article published on our website (overall winner will be printed in the magazine)
  • Two tickets to the home match of your team's semi-final (should they make it that far)
  • Every issue of Champions Journal this season
  • Official 2022 UEFA Champions League final programme
  • CJT-shirt
  • CJ Notepad
How to enter
To be in with a chance of winning, write us a story of 400 words or less about your favourite team. You can choose what you want to write about, but make it unique to you. Perhaps you want to tell us why you began supporting your team, or their most memorable match you’ve seen live. Maybe it’s memories of a favourite player, the atmosphere in the ground on a Champions League night or simply what sets your team apart from all the others in Europe.

It could be your matchday routine: where you meet friends before the game, where you eat or have a drink and when you get to the ground. Maybe you want to write about the best chant, your all-time favourite kit or the greatest goal you've seen one of your players score in this storied competition. What we don't want is a straight match report; what we do want is whatever catches your imagination. Go beyond the 90 minutes.

Deadline: Send us your entry by 23:59 CET on 31 January 2022.

Examples: Click on the '2020/21 Champions Journalists' tab above for examples of Champions Journalist articles that we have enjoyed in the past.
