Mobile company news launches the Sport24 Live Scoring app

Issued by: | 19 Mar 2014 11:55
Soon sports enthusiasts will be able to follow their favourite teams from anywhere, at any time, on their phones. The new Sport24 Live Scoring Android app for mobile phones, a initiative, offers four key components - live scores, match information, news and multimedia content.

Sport enthusiasts can use the app as an affordable and convenient solution to stay in the loop while on the move - with live scoring updates for Soccer, Rugby and Cricket matches.

Sport24 editor, Garrin Lambley says that the new app will mean sports fans will never miss out on a wicket or lose pace with a match, as long as they have their phones with them. "Recent research into Sport24 user habits show that 52% of them use their mobile phones while watching sport on TV. Our fans really embrace multi-screen use when it comes to consuming sport, which is what makes this app particularly exciting," he adds.

The app focuses on live data updates (with score changes, card issues, innings changes and more) as well as live match feeds with running game commentary. There are also team line-ups which give the option for users to view their team's position in the log. An 'add to calendar' feature alerts the user 15 minutes before the match begins.

Users can track match progress on their phones for all those "must see" moments, or just follow the score and commentary and the 'News and Multimedia' feature offers breaking news, insights and commentary on local and international sport.

"The app caters for fans who need updates, as they happen, on-the-go and it offers them an affordable (with minimal data usage) opportunity to keep on top of their favourite sport. Essentially, it takes Sport24's offering of being the one-stop digital destination for sporting news to the next level," concludes Lambley.

The app is now available in the Google Play store.
