Over the past three years, French Football Weekly has established itself as the premier English language website dedicated to French football. You can keep your throw-away-transfer-rumours and quick-hits. Our goal is to bring you insight, stories and analysis. Everytime you read an article on FFW we want you to come away having learnt something.

FFW wants you

If you think you know your Mandannes from your Mandandas, your Corchias from your Contentos and the difference between Jordan and Andre Ayew…we want you.


Do you follow a Ligue 1 club, watch games most weeks, have an interest in writing. We need your help.

Fans of:

Angers, Bastia, Bordeaux, Caen, Dijon, Guingamp, Lorient, Lyon, Monaco, Nancy, Nice, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse.

You could be part of our new project.



For everyone else…What should I write about?

It is entirely up to you, as long as it is football related, past or present, with a link to French football. We are always on the lookout for historical articles, or Frenchmen abroad. Just anything that you find interesting and think our readers will too.

Now…if you look around FFW, you will see that we don’t do match reports…they are boring. Done out of labour rather than love. If you want them, read, it’s hard to do them any better.

Our match reports are covered in our live twitter coverage. We want something interesting.

Will I get paid?

In a word, no. No one at FFW gets paid for what they do, not even the guys who are doing the twitter coverage and writing every week. We do it because we love it.

However, look at our writers. Andrew Gibney is now a freelance journalist, Jonathan Johnson works at Eurosport and ESPN. Pete Sharland, Maher Mezahi and Igor Mladenovic have gone on to receive offers of work after penning articles regularly for FFW. If you have ambition and you want to climb the writing ladder, FFW is a great place to start. We’ll link your site, blog, twitter on anything published. Let us promote your work.
