THE PAID INTERNSHIP BY COPA90 & EA SPORTS. INSPIRING, EDUCATING, AND EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION OF YOUNG MINORITY ETHNIC CREATORS (18-25)

COPA90 and EA SPORTS are committed to making changes not just within our own organisations, but the whole creative industry.

Racism in football is about more than just the high profile cases, it comes through in multiple ways, and at its core is a lack of diversity in sports media.

So while we’re working hard to support those who are already changing the landscape, we’re also looking forward so that the next generation, you, can make your mark on the industry.

Following a successful year that saw applicants come out with incredible networks and full time contracts within the industry, we’re re-opening the internship just in time for you to be part of the Women's Euros.

MADE THEIR MARk Class of  21

Joel

I can’t speak highly enough of the Beat The Bias scheme. I applied without a particular skillset or area of expertise, and no knowledge of the industry whatsoever - just a curiosity and love for football. 

That curiosity was met with encouragement, opportunity and experiences I thought were always beyond my reach.

HANNAH

COPA90 is a genuinely welcoming and collaborative place to work. I had various opportunities to work on client campaigns, and in departments that provided great insight into areas of the industry that I was unfamiliar with. 

I would highly recommend COPA90's Beat the Bias programme to any young person who wants to work in football media but is unsure about how to take that first step.

Being a part of 'Beat The Bias' was genuinely such a rewarding experience and provided me with a fascinating insight into the football media industry. 

COPA90 is one of the most fun places I've ever worked at, full of great people and good vibes.
