The Ultimate Apps List for Football Fanatics


/ by Editor
All of you football enthusiasts know that you need a way to stay up to date with your favorite sport when you are on the go. Fortunately, there are many applications available for you to choose from and most of them are well worth your time. Some of them will allow you to stream Nigerian football games. Others will inform you of any news and transactions made.All of them will satisfy even the pickiest of football fans.  


We kick this list off with fuboTV, which is a football app that will allow you to live stream Nigerian games directly from your iPhone. However, it doesn’t stop at Nigeria because there are several different leagues available on this app such as MLS, Ligue 1, Serie A, Liga MX and the English Championship. This app also allows you to stream a plethora of football channels, including the fuboTV Network, El Rey, Benfica TV, the Football Report Network and Galavision. The app will even remind you when certain football games go live.

As you probably guessed, a subscription is required to use fuboTV. You can choose between a monthly subscription at $9.99or a yearly subscription at $95 a year. Even though it's not free, subscribing to fuboTV is a no-brainer. You have access to watch numerous live football games whenever and wherever you want. Any football fan on the go needs to subscribe to fuboTV. 


If spending money isn't your thing, then one of the best free apps is Onefootball. This is an absolutely perfect app if you are looking to receive game updates, news, highlights and results. While you won’t be able to live-stream games, you will be able to check in on your favorite teams and view alive commentary session. This will allow you to track everything that happens in each game.

Outside of all of the previously mentioned perks, Onefootball is terrific if you want to follow your favorite team. If any news happens with your favorite team, you will find it on Onefootball. The design of this app is also terrific and uses a simple yet effective approach. Of all of the football apps that I have used, Onefootball may have the best interface of any of them.

Live Soccer TV

Live Soccer TV is very similar to Onefootball. Live Soccer TV is also free. It will also keep you up to date on match stats, live scores, news and events. One really cool aspect to Live Soccer TV, however, is that it will inform you with match schedules and broadcast listings. You will never miss any Nigerian football games and you will always know what broadcast station the game is playing on. The entire purpose of Live Soccer TV's design is to be a handy resource for all football aficionados.  

I have used this app for quite some time now and I have never had to look elsewhere for any football information. This is especially true when it comes to match times and broadcast listings. They also have a very clean and professional presentation that makes finding everything a breeze. I would actually recommend Live Soccer TV a little bit more than Onefootball, but both apps are still excellent.


One of the best football apps available isn't even centered on football. WatchESPN, much like fuboTV, lets you watch live football games. With this app, you have 24/7 access to all of the ESPN networks provided by your cable company.That being said, make sure to check with your cable provider on which ESPN networks you have access to. That way, whenever a football game is being broadcast on one of your available networks, you will be able to watch it anywhere. ESPN Deportes will probably be your best bet when it comes to Nigerian football games, however.

One important aspect to note about WatchESPN is if you have DirecTV, you will not be able to use this app. Besides this, though, you shouldn't have too many issues to worry about. Undoubtedly, the best part about WatchESPN is the quality of the football games. They look absolutely gorgeous as you watch them. I have stumbled upon some games which had some occasional lag, but most of the time you won’t run into any problems.


It’s funny because the last app on this list isn’t even a football app. However, that doesn’t mean that football fans don’t need it. On the contrary, ExpressVPN is highly recommended for a multitude of reasons. For one, whenever you’re browsing through the other football apps (or doing anything online),ExpressVPN will mask your IP address and encrypt all of your data.Due to your IP address being masked, you will be able to access previously blocked videos. So, if a football highlight comes in but you can’t watch it due to your location,ExpressVPN will bypass the restriction and allow you to watch it. For everything you need to know and more, check out this review by Secure Thoughts on ExpressVPN.
