We won! The Offside Rule (We Get It!) took home the Best Podcast Award at the third annual Football Blogging Awards on Thursday night, voted for by an esteemed panel of judges!
Hosted at Hotel Football in Manchester, the ceremony was attended by presenter and producer Kait Borsay as well as social media officer Charlotte Duncker.
We started our journey as a team just over three years ago as a small podcast which has now grown into an award-winning production with nearly 50 people working behind the scenes. Almost a year after we came along, the first FBA ceremony was held at the National Football Museum and we lost out Bantams Banter, the Bradford City podcast at the first time of asking.
In the two years since, The Offside Rule (We Get It!) has grown into something which is now much more than a podcast. Our website receives as many as 80,000 views per month, we have a great team of people writing, running our social media accounts and managing projects and we have worked with several companies to bring exclusive content from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada.
We released our first magazine in June focusing on the tournament out in North America and we continue to work closer every day with the FA WSL and female footballers around the country.
Finally, we would like to thank YOU – our listeners – for voting for us over the past couple of months. It allowed us to be nominated for this award for the second time and made sure Kait made her way back to London with a nice shiny, framed certificate for the mantelpiece…
