90min encourages writers to create high quality content. In order for your post to be published we ask that it meets the 90min editorial guidelines:
4. How do I pick a topic?
We have found that these topics often generate the most reads: transfer news, best ever, worst ever, top 10 lists (these are easily made using our 'Top X' template), controversial topics (ex: goal line technology, homophobia/racism in football, etc), manager and tactical analysis, and so on. Having said that, we want you to trust your instinct and write about whatever you think will make a compelling article. In the end it’s totally up to you.
5. What is considered unacceptable on 90min?
We welcome good-natured sporting debate and encourage you to express your opinions, both positive and negative, about the latest sporting issues, but we do have a few rules to make 90min a great place to write.

We will reward top content and articles that really make the mark in terms interesting, timely and high quality content.
1. What are "Featured" articles and how do I get my posts “Featured”?
Our editors look through every article daily to select the top posts and feature them on the 90min homepage, Facebook, as well as our media partner news sites. Write great posts and your articles will reach an audience of millions.
2. How can I become ‘Writer of the Month’?
90min tracks how many “reads” your articles get and ranks writers accordingly. Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the top writers for each team in a calendar month as a badge.
