The World Cup is just a matter of months away now and there are plenty of reasons to start getting excited.
Teams are making their final preparations, while new kits, stickers and other merchandise are slowly starting to hit the shelves. That applies to the Google Play store too.
As Russia 2018 gets ever closer, more and more apps are going to become available to download. We take a look at the apps you need to be downloaded to be fully prepared for a fantastic summer of football…
FIFA World Cup Fantasy Football
The fantasy football app is always a hugely popular download and, while it’s not yet released, you certainly need to earmark this one for the summer.
It’ll be available much closer to the World Cup, once all the squads have been announced and it’s the perfect app to get all your friends involved in the tournament. If you’ve been playing all season in the Premier League, it’s also the perfect month for revenge on the winners of that league too.
An Official Broadcaster’s On Demand App
The timings are always an issue at the World Cup and if you’re likely to be out and about during the tournament, downloading an official broadcaster’s app will allow you to watch on the go.
For example, in England, the BBC iPlayer or ITV Player app will allow you to stream live games via your mobile so you don’t miss a thing.
William Hill App
If you’re live streaming games, you may as well enjoy a little bet on it too and William Hill will be a market leader this summer. They’ll have all the best World Cup tips, promotions, and odds across each and every group.
They’re one of the most established and trustworthy brands out there and will give you plenty of opportunities to go far yourself in the tournament.
Football Manager 2018
Think you can do a better job than your current manager? Why not take over your nation on Football Manager 2018 and see if you can lead them to World Cup glory yourself?
Football Manager is the world’s leading football simulation game and goes into incredible detail on players’ attributes. So much so that real clubs use it as scouting systems themselves!
It’s a little costly for a mobile app but well worth it and we’d go as far to say you’ll be addicted come to a few games in.
The Official FIFA App
Of course, you’ll get all the latest news for every team from the World Cup with the official FIFA app. They’ll have tons of exclusive content and will be the first port of call for many every morning on the way to work.
With plenty of interactive features and video content, it’s a fantastic app to get all the very latest from Russia 2018.
