Fans Forum

We’re looking for Swansea City and Cardiff City super fans. The kind that have something to say and can do it with their mobile phones and social media.

Fans often know more than we do and have great analysis and opinions. ITV Wales wants to make sure it doesn’t go ignored. Which is why we’re creating a fan base.

What is this fan base?

The fan base is a group of trusted fans that we know have interesting opinions and analysis on their favourite teams. So when one of our sports correspondents is out at a match, they may ask you to meet up for an interview before or after the action. We’ll also keep a close eye on your tweets, blogs, photos and videos. We don’t want to take your content; just point people to it.

Who can be in the fan base?

Anyone. You just need to be a fan of Swansea City or Cardiff City.

How to join the fan forum?

Make a one-minute video of your analysis and prediction for the next Swans or Bluebirds match. We’re not looking for slick video made for your 42″ telly. We want this to be shot on a mobile phone or small video camera.

  • Step 1 Think about your analysis. Make some notes. Even write out a bit of a script if it helps.
  • Step 2 Get a camera. A mobile phone will do. We’re not looking for flash. Just as long as we can see and hear you.
  • Step 3 Find a quiet place and film your fan analysis on the how you think your team will fare in its next match.

What do I do with my one-minute video? 

Post it to YouTube or Vimeo, then email us a link. Here are instructions on how to get your video on YouTube and Vimeo. Once it’s up, send us a link to news@itvwales.com.

Why isn’t my team included in the fan base?

This is a pilot project. If it works well — and we hope it does — we plan to extend it to other teams. That said, you can always get in touch with us on Twitter @ITVWales, on Facebook, or email.
