Commentate on a Stags' home matchday

16 January 2023

Have you always wanted to commentate on football? Would you like the chance to describe every kick of the ball and bring matches to life for Mansfield Town supporters? If so, we want to hear from you!

The established in-stadium audio commentary team at Mansfield needs new members so Alan March Sport Ltd can continue to deliver their audio description commentary service.

Selected applicants will attend an in-person training day hosted by an experienced commentator to learn everything that will be required to become a commentator. The best on the day will be selected to become Mansfield Town audio description commentators.

This is a great opportunity to gain training and experience as a commentator.

Volunteers of Alan March Sport have become part of the commentary service AMS has provided at the very highest levels of the game. AMS has provided commentators for the finals of Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League, all stages of Euro 2020, Women’s Euro 2022 and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The service was also provided at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic games. Some previous volunteers have used the experience to gain full-time careers involved in sport, while others are involved simply because of their love of the game and the chance to share it with others. 

Want to get involved? We just have a few simple requirements:

  • Be able to commit to around 75% of Mansfield Town’s home fixtures, including any cup games for at least this season and next season.
  • Be able to carry a small amount of equipment (less than 8kg)
  • Live within approximately 90 minutes of Mansfield’s One Call Stadium.
  • Be available for an all-day training session (9.30am-5.30pmon Sunday 05 March 2023.

If that all sounds good, we want to hear from you! All you need to do is email info@alanmarchsport.com with the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Age
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • 100 words on why you think you’d be a great commentator for Mansfield Town!

The closing date for applications is 11.59pm on 28 February 2023, but Alan March reserve the right to close applications early should they be oversubscribed, so get your application in as soon as possible! You do not have to be a Mansfield Town fan to apply. 

Please note this is a voluntary position and you will not become an employee of Mansfield Town FC or Alan March Sport Ltd. All volunteers must be over the age of 16 on the date of the training day.
