Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games

What a wonderful World Cup we’ve had. There were lots of twist and turns and Germany, one of the teams I was rooting for won. So looking forward to the next big sporting event. And in fact, for the first time ever, I’m following the Tour De France. Not as exciting as the World Cup, but still impressive to watch the cyclists endure. I’m also really looking forward to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. I actually had the chance to be one of the performers in the closing ceremony. However, as the rehearsals were many — plus acccomomodations and train […]

Pitch Fever for Chelsea FC

Earlier this month, I made the following declaration on Twitter: Despite the fact that I've yet to attend one of their games, after careful consideration, I do hereby pledge my allegiance the @chelseafc! — Ursula Petula Barzey (@UrsulaBarzey) February 3, 2014 Why @chelseafc, well they are London based and owned by a billionaire. What's not to love? lol — Ursula Petula Barzey (@UrsulaBarzey) February 3, 2014 With that, here's hoping that José Mourinho and the boys in blue don't break my heart too often. — Ursula Petula Barzey (@UrsulaBarzey) February 3, 2014 Now the billionaire bit probably makes me seem […]

Things went particularly well during the season. My role involved being a part of the Saracens FC media team. That meant on match day, turning up bright and early to be briefed about the day’s schedule […]

Saracens Pioneers

How exciting! I just got back from Wembley Stadium where I had the initial training to be part of the Saracens Pioneers Volunteer Programme. In total, there are 250 of us who will be match day volunteers starting next February when Saracens moves into their new rugby stadium at Allianz Park. Our mission will be to help improve the spectator experience at Saracens home games through enhancing their family-orientated ethos. Thus, volunteers will be imbeded in all departments throughout the organization including: administration, advertising and promotions, community support, event production, hospitality, merchandise/retail, media, spectator services, ticketing and transportation. And the […]

Rugby Union

I just spent a good hour watching a rugby union game and still can’t make heads or tails of the rules. It seems to be a bastardised version of American football — or perhaps it’s the other way around. Either way, it is the gayest sport ever. The men wear the tightest shortest shorts and just run around falling and grabbing all over each other.
