By Adam Zeis on 14 Jun 2010 03:10 pm EDT

The World Cup kicked off this weekend and is in full swing. Love it or hate it, the 80-year old competition brings the entire world together for 30 days. Once every four years we get the chance to cheer on our team in route to one of the most coveted trophies in sports. While you can't always be around a TV or radio to catch the games, you can absolutely keep up while on the go with a plethora of BlackBerry apps. While there simply isn't enough time to go into each one in detail, we've compiled a list of all the applications we could find. Each has its own feature set to offer, including schedules, scores, updates, news and more. Hit the jump for the full list, and be sure to leave a comment with your favorites.

Follow the World Cup with mobile apps for your BlackBerry


I'm using South Africa from App World as well as s42 Mundial Futbol 2010. The South Africa one seems to have some features that aren't working for me (mainly the alerts), however at least it displays the scores right within the app unlike s42. S42 however shows the time of the matches in my local time, so that's mainly what I use it for (I just noticed s42 as an update as of yesterday, so once I'm done rebooting, perhaps there'll be some added features compared to what I've seen thus far).

Looks like the new ver of s42 isn't compatible with my country. Now need to see if I can find a way to downgrade, after it bricked my BB requiring a batt pull :-(

thats a load of bull you get the update and WHOOPS! your country is not supported.. delete sorry to hear about the brick tho

Wonder if the reason why they made the update was to restrict who uses their app for whatever reason :-/

I am using ScoreMobile after trying a out a bunch of others. Navita comes a close second but I could not make it to auto-refresh. I could not figure out how ..or it does not have the feature

I want to try South Africa for BlackBerry but cannot find it on AppWorld on my device while it on the web version of AppWorld. Is it incompatible with Storm?

So I use Goal and South Africa on my 9700.
Goal has a faster interface, but yesterday it had no network connection for updates, so I switched to South Africa.
At least one of them is always working...
