It’s been an amazing summer for British sport – so much so that we almost didn’t notice that the Premier League football season had come to an end back in May.
Now the new football season is here, and there are a multitude of ways to enjoy the beautiful game on your mobile. Here are Discover’s best football apps for the new football season.
Sky Go. (Free with a Sky TV package – Apple, Android)
Don’t miss a second of the footie action with the amazing Sky Go app. Watch all six Sky Sports channels on your phone, wherever you are in the UK and Ireland. The menu is simple to navigate, so you can check exactly what’s happening and when easily. And you can choose to watch games live or on demand. However, it’s only available if you already have a subscription to Sky Sports, and you can register up to two devices per household.
Football kicks. (Free – Apple, Android)
Although we wish there were a match on every day, unfortunately there are a few dull days when there isn’t. But that doesn’t mean you have to mope about. Football kicks is a fun app that lets you practice your free kicks. Just swipe the screen to control the direction of your shot. It sounds easy, but it’s highly addictive. There are seven action-packed game modes including multiplayer, fully customisable player and more.
The Sun Dream Team 2012/2013. (Free – Apple, Android)
If you can’t be a professional football player, try managing a few in your own fantasy football league with the Sun’s Dream Team. This app lets you pick and manage your team, make pre-season and in-season transfers, and join or create up to five Mini Leagues to compete against your friends and family, all from your smartphone or device. For the first time, Dream Team managers will be asked to pick a captain before entering their team, and your team will be automatically entered into a league with all other Dream Team managers that support your Premier League club.
LiveScore. (Free – Apple, Android)
If you simply can’t wait to find out the score, then LiveScore is the app for you. It’s a self-updating list of scores from football leagues, cup competitions and championships worldwide, as well as tennis, basketball and hockey matches. More than 1,000 live football games are followed live every week during the season, so you’ll never miss a thing. It automatically connects to a server nearest to your location to quickly bring you detailed match information.
