Tyler Arthur, Social Media & Content Officer

Tyler Arthur is a sports writer and social media manager with an extensive background in American Football as a player, coach, journalist, analyst and fan.

Tyler studied Journalism at De Montfort University, where he was first introduced to American Football. He joined the DMU Falcons and demonstrated a natural aptitude for the sport, leading the team to a Division 2 Championship victory as Quarterback. His passion for the game quickly extended off the field, and he became involved in coaching the team as well as managing their social media presence.

Tyler’s journalistic background has seen him take on a number of roles as a sports writer, analyst and social media correspondent, both during his studies and after graduation, while working as a freelance writer and editor. He’s contributed to a number of leading British American Football websites including The Touchdown and Read American Football, as well as playing a major role in the growth of Gridiron Hub’s online community.

Not content to remain behind a computer screen, Tyler has delivered in-person coverage and analysis from sporting events and games, including the NFL International Series at Wembley. This has given him the opportunity to meet and interview a number of high-profile NFL players, including Aaron Donald, Christian McCaffrey and – a personal bucket-list experience for this committed Las Vegas Raiders fan – Derek Carr.

Outside of work, Tyler is a fantasy football addict, online gaming fanatic, aspiring chess player and self-confessed sporting stats nerd, following baseball, UFC and basketball as well as American Football. He’ll be applying his extensive experience and boundless enthusiasm to the UKFL’s online community, delivering an online fan experience that’s just as exciting as the on-field action.
