The Best Free Android Apps For Sports Fans

Just like all the other categories of Android apps, the sports apps available for your Android phone are incredibly diverse. In my opinion, this particular category may be the most diversified simply because of all the numerous sports that are played throughout the world. Of course with every sport comes hundreds of Android apps.

If, for instance, you're looking for an app that will allow you to keep up with the different European soccer leagues, you need to have at least some help before you start downloading apps. If you go in blind, chances are you will download ten apps that sound like they would do the trick before you find one that accomplishes half what you would like it to do! That's just how it is. I only hope that if you go about finding apps that way, you are doing so with free apps- otherwise you may be out hundreds of dollars pretty darn quick.

One more note: I am going to concentrate on free Android sports applications that are popular now and will be popular in the future. Well that's apparent, right? Not exactly- a lot of the apps soar to the top of the rankings because it's a certain time of the year or a significant athletic event is going on (World Cup or the Olympics) (World Cup or the Olympics). I'm also looking into the pure quality of the software and the developer of the app. This way, if you want a great Football App (either US Football or ordinary Football), you should be very happy now and in the future with the one I list...

Although there are a number of Android sports applications that do many more things than giving sports news, I'm focussing on free Android apps for sports enthusiasts on this particular list.

Sporting News Pro Football

If you're a diehard NFL fan, this app should be on your phone. This is an excellent tool to have for game day or if you're like me and like to look up every stat for every player! The user interface is nice and not overly busy.

CBS Sports Pro Football

I definitely shouldn't have two pro football Android applications on my list, but it's the most popular sport in the US and after thinking about it, why not have three? Maybe I won't go that far. This is a terrific football app for everyone, but it's primarily oriented towards people who play Fantasy Football with CBS Sports. Just login and you will have complete control over your fantasy team!

NBA Game Time Lite 2009-10

This is the official NBA Android app from last season. This future season's app will undoubtedly be even better! It gives all the player and team facts, real-time results and even TV information so that you can find out what channel your favorite club is playing on! If you're an NBA fan and you want a single pro basketball app, this is your best option.


Are you a Formula 1 fan? I'll tell you what, honestly, I'm not much of a fan but that doesn't mean I don't adore this app. This free Android sports app gives more than simply live updates for every F1 race across the world. Plain and straightforward, the aesthetics and the functionality are entertaining. If you download this app, you won't be disappointed!

FotMob 5.0 - Live Soccer

The best soccer leagues from across the world are monitored on this app. Some of them are the Premier League, Serie A, Primera Division and Allsvenskan. I could go on and on, but I honestly wouldn't have an idea about what I'm talking about, haha. I'll admit that I'm not the biggest soccer (football) lover, but I've glanced through this software and it's a pretty solid, well constructed app that I would suggest to anyone.

ESPN ScoreCenter

I really shouldn't have to say much more than this is the official ESPN app. Heck, I'm not going to: ESPN is "The Worldwide Leader In Sports" after all!


This is again more of a sports portal. All of the key sports are covered by this app and it's evident why hundreds of thousands of people truly like it! It's elegantly done and you'll never complain about a lack of stats or information.

If you're looking for just one free Android sports app to satiate your sports-fix, you can't go wrong with either ESPN ScoreCenter or SportsTap!

Major League Baseball News

There is borderline too much (not in a bad way) baseball knowledge stuffed into this app! If you can't get enough of MLB, you need to download this free Android app now. Along with all of the regular information, standings and results, each team gets their own page and you can design your own RSS feed with this app!

MMA News

All the latest results, upcoming matchups and octagon gossip you'd ever want! If you're into Mixed Martial Arts, this is the app to acquire. IMO, it blows away any other MMA-related Android app.

Sports Radio Droid

he radio app gives you the power to listen to just about any sports broadcast in the country! There's a healthy list of stations that are covered and I truly NEED this app when I go on vacation. Heaven forbid I'd be away from my sports talk show for a few days, hehe. It's also an excellent app if you're living far away from your hometown and your favorite team.
