“Some people believe football is a matter of life and death … I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”
So said Bill Shankly, the late, great manager of Liverpool Football Club. He wasn’t wrong, either, as billions of people religiously follow their favorite football team as if their lives depend on it.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off both figuratively and literally this week. So it’s time to find out what websites and apps you’ll be making use of in order to follow all the action happening in Brazil. Beyond Google, of course.
Football Fans Of The World Unite
We want to know, The 2014 World Cup: What Websites & Apps Do You Recommend? If you’re not a fan of football – or soccer as Americans insist on calling it against the wishes of every other country in the world – then this question is not meant for you. Unless the discussion below piques your interest enough that you suddenly find yourself cheering on one of the 32 teams competing in the biggest sporting event of the year.
If you’re still reading along then you’re bound to be a football fan. And you’re also bound to have a list of websites and/or apps you use to follow the beautiful game. We want you to share your knowledge with us by recommending the best websites and apps to use during the World Cup.
We recently detailed how to follow the World Cup from the comfort of your own home. And we previously featured eight of the best websites all football fans should bookmark. These two articles are a good starting point, but we really want to compile a definitive list of the best websites and apps for football fans keeping their eyes firmly fixed on the Brazil World Cup from now until July 13.
You can recommend a particular website; whether it’s a big name everybody already know or a fansite you feel offers the best coverage on your team. You can also recommend an app; whether it’s one dedicated solely to the 2014 FIFA World Cup or one which covers football in all its various guises.
