Make money from sporting events
Want to make money from some of the top sporting events in the world? Whether it’s hundreds of pounds or thousands, there are better ways to make money from Premier League football or Wimbledon tennis than gambling on them. From seasonal jobs to rental ideas, there’s plenty to earn you some quick money. Find out how right here!
- Where you can work?
- Make money with your driveway
- Sell food and drink
- Make money renting your property
- Get started with these websites
Some sports are now well into their respective seasons – but for many it’s just getting to be the right time to start applying. The football and rugby union seasons are coming to a close (though there’s still opportunity to apply for jobs!) but the cricket, golf, tennis, and horse racing seasons are just getting started.
Working at sporting events are often great because you can pick between long-term contracts with shorter hours (working at a football stadium throughout the year for example) or a short-term contract with long hours (like Wimbledon). No matter which you go for you’re sure to make some good money.
One really good tip is to find out which advertising brands are supporting events. Once you know you can get in contact with them and see if there’s any work you can do for them – maybe handing out leaflets, selling their products to spectators or simply helping them to advertise their brand.
Make sure you start looking for positions well in advance. Get started now if you’re aiming for a specific event this year or even next year.
Here are some example of sporting events jobs that you can get work at this year:
Work for your favourite football team. Though the season is coming to its end it’ll guarantee you’re in early for the start of the next season in August.
- A really useful website is Hospitality Staff which has an extensive list of job vacancies in the hospitality sector.
- Alternatively, if you go through a website like 247recruit you can see individual teams who are recruiting, like Chelsea, Leicester and Sheffield United. There are plenty of other grounds looking for staff all over the country as well.

Wimbledon is the ultimate tennis event for a lot of people and you can be a part of the action by working there. It only lasts two weeks (or three if you work the qualifying tournament as well) but the long hours you work throughout the tournament ensures you end up with a tidy sum. There are loads of jobs available at the tournament – go to the website here and find out what jobs need doing.
- Facilities Management Catering Limited is the official catering service at Wimbledon and you can apply online.
- Leisure Support Services provide the cleaning and court covering services and at Wimbledon. You can apply online at 247 Recruit for various positions.
- G4S provide security services for the tournament (as well as many others throughout the country) and you can apply online.
Here is list of the main cricket grounds in England where both County and International cricket is played in the summer months.
- The Oval is the home of Surrey and plays host to many England internationals. Cricket is obviously a summer sport but there are various starting dates and you can earn money starting at £7 an hour. The Oval will host one of the upcoming Ashes Test matches, so 2013 is a great chance to be at a major event. Search for jobs at the Oval.
- The Ageas Bowl, more well known as The Rose Bowl, is a cricket ground in Southampton. Like the Oval, it hosts international cricket as well as being the ground of Hampshire. Find jobs at the Ageas Bowl.
- Edgbaston, based in Birmingham, is an option for those based in the Midlands. Search for jobs at Edgbaston. You can earn competitive pay and there are a variety of start dates, from as soon as April throughout the summer to September.
If none of these are near you try contacting your local cricket club and seeing if they have any hospitality vacancies.
Horse racing venues
There are all sorts of horse racing events throughout the year. Here are a couple we found that are looking for staff.
- Bar staff are needed to work at Royal Ascot, Berkshire from 18 June to the 22 June. Pay is £6.25 per hour. Apply online.
- It’s not just specific events you can apply for, you can also check out jobs at the racecourses themselves. Huntingdon Racecourse, in Cambridgeshire, and Newmarket Racecourse, in Suffolk, may be currently hiring and you can earn in excess of £50 a day.
Like football, the rugby union season is ending soon but there are still plenty of jobs available. Many of the stadiums have events going on throughout the summer so check out these below:
- If you’re living in London you may want to check out the Twickenham Stoop, not to be confused with Twickenham Stadium (who don’t appear to be recruiting right now), the home of Harlequins.
- The Millennium Stadium is the home of the Welsh rugby and football team, and hosts a number of other events too – such as live concerts. This is definitely worth checking out.
- Like the Millennium Stadium in Wales, the Aviva Stadium in Ireland is home to the Ireland rugby team and the Republic of Ireland football team. This stadium hosts many other events too so is another that will be very busy over the summer months.
As with the cricket and tennis, contact any local golf clubs to see if they need any help over the summer, you may find it easier to simply ask who provides the catering service at the club and then get in touch with them yourself.
Golf clubs are often places where you can work all year round, regardless of whether any major events are going on. Obviously the demand for golf may be slightly less in the winter months, but they’ll always need people to work as waiting staff in the clubhouse – there will probably be more people in the clubhouse on a rainy day in any case! Find the nearest golf clubs to you (England only).
If you have a driveway, garage or private parking space that you don’t use you can rent it out specifically for any sporting events near you. It’s a brilliant way to make some money so contact Park Let or Parkatmyhouse.com to advertise it. If you live near Wimbledon for example, or a football stadium, you can use either of these sites to let thousands of people know about your space and start making some money.
Want to know more? Read our article on making money from your postcode for more ways to use your home for extra cash.
The first thing you need to know is that it is illegal to trade on the street without a licence. So you’ll need to contact your local council. Give them a ring and ask to put through to the licensing department or street trading. You need to apply for a temporary street trading licence. It might be an idea to contact the local police licensing department too, just to make sure you know about any legal issues.
Don’t be disheartened if the council rejects you – why not sell stuff on your driveway instead? If you live near an event you can set up your own little stall on your property and sell to the spectators walking past.
There’s scope to rent out your property if you’re living near a major event. People living around the Wimbledon tennis site regularly rent out their properties for the duration of the tournament, and it can be done for the Ryder Cup too (though this will next be held in Britain in 2014).
- Gumtree: This is a great starting place to make a general search for event staff positions. Go to the part-time job section and keep an eye out for any event work near you. You can do a refined search by typing in ‘event staff’ to the website’s search engine to make life easier.
- Hospitality Staff and 247 Recruit are job search engines where you can find part-time vacancies of this nature easily so check them out.
- Lucy Hall Event & Hospitality Staffing are one of the leading event staff providers in London. You can submit your CV online and they will get in touch if they’re interested.
