As one of the most popular sporting events in the world, the 2018 World Cup has recently kicked off and millions are tuning in on a regular basis to watch their favourite teams play. Beyond having to be near a television to watch the game or keep up with the latest developments, many mobile apps are able to enhance the viewing experience by letting users follow the event from their phone. As a result, this article discusses the different apps that are must-haves for those who are looking to follow the World Cup games this year.

2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ Official App (iOS/Android)

Not surprisingly, a must-have app for the games is the official app that is released by FIFA. Through the app, users are able to get real time information on their favourite teams so that they can keep up-to-the-minute even without watching the game. Through exclusive videos and photos as well as the full schedule of games, FIFA World Cup Russia is an app that is highly comprehensive in the information that is covered. Users of the app can also get different information on the teams and players such as when they are expected to play as well as the stats for that particular team. One of the best features of FIFA World Cup is that automatic notifications can be sent so that nothing is missed for those who are following the games. As the official app for the event, FIFA World Cup Russia is one of the best tools that can be used to enhance the experience as a spectator.

World Cup App 2018 – Live Scores & Fixtures (Android)

As an all-in-one tool that aims to aggregate all things related to the World Cup in a single place, World Cup App 2018 lets users see the scores and find other information such as the line-up, those who have scored goals, and different statistics so that users can get a better understanding of the game. Furthermore, the push notifications can be highly customized so that users only get exactly what they want to know such as goals for only particular teams which means that the app can be made to be highly personalized instead of giving users push notification even for teams that they are not interested in. With an interface that is extremely easy to understand that can be filtered to display only the information of interest, World Cup App is one of the best tools that can be used to quickly refer to all things related to the 2018 World Cup.

BBC Sport (iOS/Android)

Although BBC Sport is not an app that only focuses on the 2018 World Cup, the degree of coverage that BBC is able to cover in the realm of sports makes it one of the best tools that can be used for a detailed understanding of the games. Through the app, users can see scores, highlights, and the latest sports news for all sports including the World Cup. One of the best features of BBC Sport is that beyond the basic information that is likely to be available on other sources as well, the app also shows in-depth analysis of different games and teams so that users can get a better understanding of the game through the different stories and analysis that would not be available elsewhere. As some of the games can be watched in real time, this app is one of the most highly recommended for those who are looking to gain a more detailed understanding of the different sporting events, including the 2018 World Cup.

YouTube (iOS/Android)

An unlikely but extremely useful app on this list is YouTube which lets users watch either live games being played or games that have already been played. With a simple search, users can find highlights from different sources and even live streams of the game from various channels. While the stats and additional information of the games cannot be found on YouTube, it is one of the only sources for actually watching complete games and so it is one of the tools that are perfect for those who wish to view the games in real time or in replay. However, users need to already know of the game schedule as YouTube will not send notifications of when the teams will be playing.

For those who are looking for different tools that can be used in order to enhance their viewing experience of the 2018 World Cup, the apps listed in this article are able to provide viewers with information straight on their mobile device. From stats, schedules, to even being able to watch the game either in real time or in replay, these tools can ensure that no information is missed with regards to the World Cup.
