Robin Bairner is an eminent digital football journalist who has been writing about the sport for major global publishers since 2006, specialising in Ligue 1 and Scottish football. He has been chief editor of the FootballTransfers global edition since its launch in 2020. Previously Bairner had been a key member of the editorial team which helped Goal.com become the world’s biggest football website. He covered multiple major competitions as a correspondent for Goal including the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where he had the opportunity to work in Fortaleza. Among his highlights of the competition was Brazil’s quarter-final victory over Colombia.

Two years later, Robin was heavily involved at Euro 2016 as he reported on France’s run to the final, while at Russia 2018 he was Goal’s Ekaterinburg correspondent. These roles not only allowed him to develop a written profile, but also provided the opportunity to work on camera.

Writing about football has always been a passion and Robin has produced notable features on a freelance basis for highly creditable publications such as The Blizzard and When Saturday Comes.

On top of this, Bairner has published exclusive transfer news on several of the world game’s leading players, including Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.
