Smartphones have changed almost everything, including football. If you can’t get a ticket, just grab your mobile and check out some of the great things you can do before the Blues kick-off.
- Check The Scores And Watch The Goals
How are Arsenal doing? Are City still winning? Will Spurs do a Spurs? You won’t have to wait very long to find out with apps like BBC Sport. Check out the scores before kick-off and turn on your notifications to get a buzz every time a rival gets a goal. You can even cater your settings to only get notifications from the matches you care about.
If you missed the last match or just want a little refresher of the action from the weekend, you can watch the goals and best bits from previous matches on your mobile. If you’re a Sky Sports customer, you can download the Score Centre app and check out the goals from every Premier League match this season…on the same day. That’s 380 frantic, fascinating matches featuring some of the best players in the world, all in the palm of your hand.
- Raise The Stakes With A Bet Or Two
If the agony of a six-horse Premier League title race isn’t quite enough tension for you, raise the stakes with a bet from your phone. There are dozens of mobile betting apps if you want to put your money where your mouth is. Paddy Power, Sky Bet and Bet365 are three of the most popular and regularly offer some of the best odds around.
Fancy a flutter on something other than football? Visit a mobile casino site like Comeon and they’ll even offer you a free bonus. Spin the roulette wheel, beat the dealer in blackjack or even hit up the slot machines, all from the comfort of your own home.
- Order Food For Half-Time
Missing out on the half-time pint and pie? You can order your own grub for the interval and you’ll have a much larger selection than beef & onion or chicken balti. Pizza giants like Domino’s and Papa John’s have fantastic apps which can get food from your phone to your front door within minutes. Fancy something different? Apps like Just Eat can deliver a whole range of different takeaways from your local area. Why not switch up the cold pie for some Italian or Chinese food?
