There is an app for almost everything these days, particularly for fans of the beautiful game. In fact, football apps have been growing rapidly, although many of them don’t cover local sides like Whitecroft & Barton or Ryde Saints. That doesn’t mean they aren’t worth downloading, though, especially if you’re a fan of football at all levels.

Some apps provide live score updates from some of the biggest leagues in Europe, while others enable us to watch the goals as and when they go in from the Premier League. These types of apps can be housed on our smartphone devices with ease, too. Alongside playing the best online casino games at Mansion UK or updating social media profiles daily, people have become heavily reliant on football apps to provide their daily news, score updates and interviews from some of the game’s very best teams and players. The options are comprehensive, although some apps are better than others.

With fans already turning their attention to the new football season, here is a look at some of the best football apps for your smartphone device right now. All of the apps featured are available on iPhone and android unless stated otherwise.
