However, if you do not want to use the template and want to learn how to make a Wikipedia page of yourself, then these are the steps you need to follow.

✔Start by Creating an Account

Just like in order to go to school a child needs to take admission first, to create a Wikipedia page for an athlete you need to create an account. Follow these steps to get started on the procedure.

  • Visit the Wikipedia homepage and choose a language
  • Click the create account option
  • Fill the registration form and confirm your email
  • Visit the homepage again and log in to your account.

✔Do Edits to Be Notable on the Site

The next step is to do reliable edits on relevant pages to create notability under your name. Make sure your account is four days old before you make any edits. Also, you are obliged to do seven authentic edits in order to have a strong reputation. Remember the more edits you do the more your authenticity increases and eventually your worth increases.

✔Check for Red Link for the Title

Even though the player is going to be the only one in the world but you still need to check if the title is available through the red link methods. Once the title appears in a red link, click on the ‘ask for the page to be created’ option and move further.

✔Write Exceptional Content About the Athlete

This part needs utmost attention and excellent writing skills. Make sure that each aspect of the athlete’s life is covered and you create unique content that can get approved instantly. Your prime focus should be on the content and there should be no errors in it at any cost.

✔Review and Turn the Page In for Approval

Review the content and submit the page for approval. The approval process usually takes anywhere from 3 to 6 months. You have to be a little patient with this step. However, if your page does not get accepted in the maximum time, then chances are that it has been rejected already. All you have to do is improve the page and try again.


These are all the steps that you need to follow for making a seamless Wikipedia page. Give your best and bring something exceptional to the table.
