Staying on top of sports fixtures is like a full-time job. There are so many sports and so many teams—and that’s before you worry about time zones, last-minute TV changes, and the weather.
Quite a few sports apps will keep you abreast of the latest head-to-heads, but who’s got time for checking yet another app in their busy schedule? I’m sure I speak for many of our readers when I say I prefer a one-stop shop.
So, if you’re looking for a more streamlined way to know what’s going on in your favorite leagues, perhaps it’s time for you to check out Google Calendar. It’s easy to download sports fixtures so you can see them alongside your regular agenda.
