FIFA is the entity responsible for organizing the World Cup so we can expect that they will work on a solid mobile application ? and work on it they did! The official FIFA World Cup app is relatively new but a recent and major update has prepared it for this year?s event. The app will provide game schedules, team standings, and news coverage of the entire tournament. It will also offer some amusing features like a survey for the ?Man of the Match? and a chance to win a kickoff ball.

Being one of the major worldwide providers of sports coverages, ESPN?s FC app can be considered as a treasure trove of World Cup information.

Forza Soccer is another handy FIFA World Cup app that is used and rated positively by many sports fans. It will bring lots of FIFA updates such as live scores, video highlights, and push notifications. The app also presents some fun facets such as opinion polls where users can vote on funny surveys about the leagues.
Previously branded as ?TheFootballApp,? OneFootball Brasil is a special iOS app devoted to provide only the most significant news about the World Cup.
