BBC sports app for international audiences

February 7, 2013

The BBC’s international website,, has launched a sports mobile application for iPhone and iPod touch devices across the globe. The free app brings together the BBC’s coverage to deliver news, live scores, stats, commentary and analysis on the go.

Arriving in time for the start of a busy 2013 sporting calendar, the app’s customisable menu allows audiences to keep up with their favourite sports – from breaking football news and gossip, to live text coverage of the UK Premier League, Rugby Union Six Nations championship and the upcoming F1 season.

A mobile football live scores section has been introduced, allowing users to follow the action, whether they’re at the match or out and about. It provides a league-by-league overview of the latest scores and goal scorers at a glance, with dedicated match pages for more in-depth information, bringing together starting line-ups, match stats, live text commentary and the post-game report.

In addition, a fixtures and results section has been developed to help users keep on top of all the major UK and international football competitions, by simply selecting any day in the season from the app’s calendar.
