It’s the global game – it’s not wrong to say that almost everyone is watching. There’s so much football going on at any one time it’s basically impossible to stay up to date with all of it.
The excitement of football is in the unpredictability and the brilliance of the play, but to really know what’s going on across different leagues and teams, you’re going to want some help. So what’s the best way to get that help?
You need some great apps to let you track all those games, follow your favourite team, and find out the big stories of the day or week. Luckily, we’ve done the searching for you. Here are the 5 best apps for live football scores.
The official app for the sport’s international governing body is a one-stop shop for all your football needs. It provides in-game tracking, live score updates, as well as stories from around the league and analysis. Better still, you can set your favourite team so that it prioritises news and scores for them. As well as scores, you can also listen or watch live with extensions to the app.
If you want to get your scores with a side of high-level analysis, then ESPN is the place for you. Their powerful app gives you access not just to scores and results, but also all of their football-based coverage, with podcasts and snippets of shows to go alongside the game recaps.
A great inclusion. The BBC does a live feed for every major football game window, whether it’s Premier League, Champions League or key fixtures from around the globe. The app is free and easy to use, and there’s analysis and commentary on there too.
The new kid on the block is proving to be a heavyweight in the world of sports news apps, and their basketball is the piece de resistance. With live in-game reporting, as well as deep analysis and news from around the league, you get a total experience right from the off. The subscription isn’t cheap but the price may well be worth it for the discerning sports fan.
A really clever little app, Feedly uses an RSS feed to aggregate live score feeds and updates from across a variety of different platforms, websites and news outlets, meaning you only need to download one app to get all the news. It doesn’t have all the functionality of NFL Mobile or ESPN, but if you want one app to cover lots of news, this might be it.
We’re well into the new football seasons around the world now, with the Premier League already shaping up to be a cracker, and European Leagues like La Liga also showing some captivating results. It’s the perfect time to get up-to-date on what’s going on.
Stay tuned in to everything that’s happening, right on your smartphone.
