Top apps for following sporting events

Breaking news alerts, score updates, general sport related rumours and chat are all important to sport fans, as well as maybe the odd sport related game. In light of this we have rounded up the best apps available.

Yahoo Sport

Having great coverage and all the latest news, this app is perfect for keeping users up to date with what is happening in the sporting world. Slick looking and with an easy to use interface as well as customisable features, Yahoo Sport is a winning app.

BBC Sport

Jam packed with the latest news, transfer gossip and interviews with players and managers, the BBC Sport app is ideal. Linking seamlessly to BBC radio, notifications customisable for both football scores and F1 results, and offering match highlights which users can stream to their TV’s via Google Chromecast, the BBC have created a very well rounded app that offers a lot of features and content.

Sky Sports Live Football

Offering perhaps the best in app coverage on the nations favourite game, the Sky Sports Live Football SC app comes with a built in and updated text commentary section for every big game. With player and manager interviews before and after the games, you can get your updates here before anywhere else. Newspaper talk, videos, match odds and even a handy pub finder to help you find the nearest location showing the game on the big screen, this app is found on most football lovers’ phones!

Football Manger

This one isn’t a sports news app, but a very popular sports gaming app allowing users to feel the pressure of the managerial spotlight, Football Manager is a popular app which used to be found mostly on PC’s until recent years. Different to most football games, users don’t actually play a game, but instead take charge as manager. It’s all about tactics, line ups and managing clubs at the highest, or lowest level – Football Manager has a strong base of supporters, and it is easy to see why!

What events to look out for

We have already had a number of big sporting events this year with the Six Nations Rugby and the Australian Open Tennis. However, April is jam packed with must see competitions.

April’s calendar includes:

• The Masters teeing off on April 4th

• The Grand National running out of the gate on April 7th

• Darts Premier league hits the bullseye on April 7th

• Snooker World Championships making a break on April 16th

However, let’s not forget the important events of European Football Championships, Wimbledon and the Olympics.
