Essential Football Apps for Fans

There is so much happening throughout the football season it is not always easy to keep up with results, statistics, and player performances. Thankfully, it has become easier to do this due to the introduction of mobile apps. These can easily be installed on the majority of mobile devices via a couple of taps of the screen but what are the essential football apps for fans?



Many football apps are based on showing the latest fixtures and results from around the world. Two good examples of football apps that cover a wide range of leagues and competitions across the planet are OneFootball and FotMob. OneFootball has been available to download for several years and leads the way in terms of news, latest scores, and results. FotMob does something similar and in addition to showing the latest scores and results you can also check team line-ups, player ratings and fantasy football scores where available. Both OneFootball and FotMob are free to install and use.


For those fans who would like more depth to their football statistics, an essential football app is WhoScored. Much like the two football apps highlighted above, WhoScored shows the latest scores and results for many leagues and competitions around the world but they take things one step further thanks to their analysis. The match centre feature comes with live performance ratings, match commentary and in-play statistics. It is possible to check the latest team statistics but also individual player statistics including shots on target, pass success, dribbles, interceptions, aerial duals won, tackles won, saves and so much more.


Many football fans enjoy having a bet on the game but what is the best football betting app? There are so many to choose from it can be difficult to narrow it down but the Bet365 app has to be up there with the best. The app is easy to navigate and you will find a huge selection of football competitions and markets. It is possible to create your own bet using the bet builder feature plus cash out during the match. However, Bet365 is not the only leading football betting app available and others include PaddyPower, BetVictor, Ladbrokes and William Hill. Some of the apps even come with specific bonuses that can only be obtained when using the app, thus increasing their appeal to football fans.


One of the most popular football games on the planet is Premier League Fantasy Football. You can select your team and make transfers easily by using the official Premier League app. Not only will you find all the latest news and results for the English Premier League but also the Fantasy Football game. This is the top Fantasy Football game currently available and 7 million people play the game every season.


In addition to the football apps highlighted above, other essential football apps for fans include Forza Football, BeSoccer, ESPN, SofaScore, Bleacher Report, Top Eleven, and the official UEFA Champions League app.
