Thanks for finding your way to my page. My name is Mark Lovell and I’m a freelance journalist, specialising in German football. I can offer features, previews, translations, match reports, blogs, ratings, podcasts, live opinions, reaction, punditry and interviews in English. With experience and expertise in the betting industry too, I can provide insightful analysis and punter previews. Media savvy in both England and Germany, I can also speak fluent German, as I probably should after two decades living and working in Germany.


I write for a wide variety of print and digital clients including BBC Sport, ESPN, FourFourTwo and Bleacher Report. Equally comfortable in a broadcast setting, I’m a regular live TV and Radio guest on international platforms such as CNN World Sport, TalkSport and Sirius XM. I take a special interest in Bayern Munich and aim to touch on the burning footballing issues of the day, providing the kind of insight you only get by travelling the stadiums of Germany.
