Best Sports Apps to Watch Sports News 2018
There’s nothing like going to a live event – the crowd, the camaraderie, the excitement and the rush of adrenaline, but all sorts of things can prevent us from being able to follow our team in person – your best friend’s wedding, the gruelling journey to the ground… or maybe you’re simply just a couch potato who prefers to watch your team in the comfort of your own home. And why not?
But wherever you are for the big match, gone are the days when you need to discreetly listen to results through the ear piece of your radio, now you can keep bang up-to-date with scores and news on a whole range of fantastic sports apps.
Here I’ve listed five of the best sports apps for 2018:
1. 365Scores: Sports Scores Live
For its sheer breadth of sports coverage – ten in total –including, rugby, football, American football and even handball, 365Scores wins first place. Plus, you can get real-time push notifications on your favourite teams and even videos of the goals.
Yahoo Sports will also allow you get push notifications on your favourite teams and seems to cover all sports. You can even request notifications for when a game starts.
The ESPN sports app keeps you bang up-to-date with the scores and sports news coverage, as well as live streaming. This app is designed with Android users in mind who will get the best out of it. Like the Yahoo Sports and the 365Scores app, you can personalise the notifications for your favourite team.
4. Bleacher Report
This app is more about sports’ rumour mill than about it about up-to-the-minute results. Whatever’s going on in the sporting world, once you’ve personalised the settings, you’ll be the first to hear about it.
Good old Aunty. The BBC is still a force to be reckoned with in the sports news arena, and they have a great app too. Like the ESPN app, the BBC’s app works best on Android. Personalisation settings allow you to follow your team, get push notifications and share results. You can also watch live sport on this app.
The next time you do travel to a game, think about using the Brompton mobile app, which allows you to find a docking station, hire a bike and, even, how to fold and unfold it. By making your journey to the match so much easier, it has the potential to kick that couch potato in to touch, but if that’s a stretch too far, perhaps you should try one of Brompton’s new electric bikes!
