Just as the Champions League has a qualification round to narrow down the field of teams that will compete in the Champions League proper, this year’s EPL Awards has had to do the same in the ‘Best EPL Blog’ category due to the sheer quantity of quality blogs this season.
This is the third year that the EPL Awards, hosted and organized by EPL Talk, will be taking place. It’s one of the few award competitions that allows you, the supporters to choose the winners. Plus it’s conveniently held at the end of the season so it’s a true representation of the best of the best from a Premier League season.
All of the categories for the EPL Awards will open next week (categories such as best online newspaper coverage of the EPL, best commentator, best iPhone app, best Twitterer as well as a few new categories). But the qualification round for the Best EPL Blog of 2010-11 begins now and runs through Friday, April 29, 2011 at midnight ET.
The 18 blogs nominated in the qualification round include many remarkable sites including Dispatches From a Football Sofa, Left Back In The Changing Room, The Best Eleven, The Andersred Blog, World Soccer Reader, Ginge Talks The Footy, Three And In, Soccer Report Extra, Three Match Ban, The Political Economy of Football, Unprofessional Foul, Post Match Pint, Bagsy Not In, In The Stands, Soccer By The Numbers, Surreal Football, Beat The First Man, and A Football Report.
After the polls close on Friday at midnight, the top three winners will then enter the final round for the Best EPL Blog award category where they’ll join 17 other blogs such as The Swiss Ramble, The Run of Play, Zonal Marking and others.
May the best blogs win.
