BBC Sport App

The BBC is synonymous with creating great content. Because it is publicly funded it is meant to report without bias or political agenda. The BBC Sport app is clean and easy to navigate, with real-time updates, fixture lists, and group tables. It is essentially the same as their sports site, which is also excellent for use on a mobile device.


If you are on the go, then watching the big games on your phone may be your only option. ITV hub will offer catch-up on the games that it has the rights to, you can also watch their live coverage too. It’s free to download and watch (you do need to join, which will require an email address), however, there is a premium version that gets rid of the adverts for you.

BBC IPlayer

This is the BBC’s version of the ITV Hub. Because it’s publicly funded you will need a UK TV license to view the content and you now need to join with your name and email address. Iplayer is an excellent app, offering both live and catch up versions of the big games. Their App is available for both IOS and Android and is very simple to use.

William Hill App

Plenty of people love a flutter during the World Cup. It is estimated that there will be over £1 Billion gambled during the tournament. There are loads of offers available during the competition with free bets galore, but William Hill has one of the best offers. Place a £10 bet on a team to win the tournament and get a £10 free bet every time they win.  Their App is easy to use and quick for depositing and withdrawing.

The Official FIFA APP

Want scores, fixtures, live updates, venues, and timings? Then look no further than the official FIFA App. Although we prefer the layout of the BBC Sport app, the FIFA version is only to do with the World Cup, so you aren’t going to get lost looking at other sport or news. It’s available for free on IOS and Android and you can download using the links below.
