Football is definitely the most popular sport in the world. The love for football in Nigeria is even more intense as one visit to a football viewing centre will confirm this. In fact, a lot of Nigerians are loyal fans of one football team or the other. Only the very few take interest in other sports like basketball while the seemingly ridiculous people like me have no love for any sport.
Despite the fact that I rarely engage in any sports activity, there are times I take my time off with friends to go watch football matches at a viewing centre though mostly not because of the matches but the fun, passion, and sense of kindred spirit that the fans of a particular team show each other. I must not forget the amusement I get from the taunting remarks that the supporters of the different teams playing throw at each other.
Now, the world is developing and technology is taking us to a greater level. If the noise and the stress of having to leave the comfort of your home or workplace for a viewing centre are too much… or maybe you are the only sports lover in the family and everybody else wants to watch something else (a movie maybe) instead of the football match you are dying to watch? Why don’t you just pick up your smartphone and get any of these football streaming apps on it so you can watch your favourite sport without any trouble?
Listed below are some of the highly-rated applications for not just football but sport streaming in general.
