    In my personal opinion, the most important attribute for sports content writers has to be their passion for sports. That's where I believe I have an edge over other competitors when it comes to writing about a myriad of sports, particularly football (soccer). I have written more than 300 articles which have been published on several websites. Currently a full time contributor at, I am deeply passionate about football and mixed martial arts in particular and possess extensive knowledge concerning global sports. Apart from sports, I am capable of writing about a wide array of topics, ranging from technology to food reviews. In short, I can be classified as a generic content writer with a lot of time on his hands, as I'm currently waiting for my job as a marketing analyst to begin in Singapore. So if you require a passionate writer for your content, especially anything related to sports, I will make sure I exceed your expectations and matching deadlines is one of the core principles of my life, so I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
