About

why are we here?

Behind every successful athlete is a team of highly trained people. Unsung Sports wants to tell the story of those men and women.

We are looking to hear the stories of the entire backroom staff. The coaches, analysts, agents, kit men, medical team, managers, officials and everything in between. How did they get into the sports industry and what keeps them there?

We want to create meaningful content from the viewpoint of the non-athlete. If you have an interesting story, let us know.

We would also love to hear from sports professionals who want to thank their team.
