For a lot of of football/soccer fans, the only place to for news, updates and scores is the Goal website but BlackBerry 10 users all over the world can now download the Goal.com app. Having freshly arrived in BlackBerry World, the app offers up plenty of features for fans and is available in over 17 different languages. Exclusive content, interviews, transfer gossip, live scores and much more from the world of football. 

  • Real time access to all goal.com breaking news
  • Live match commentary from 10 leagues around the world and major tournaments
  • League standings from the world’s major leagues
  • Transfer zone updates
  • Live Twitter feed
  • 36 editions of Goal.com optimized for your specific country

Sadly, it doesn't seem as though video is supported in the app as of yet but hopefully that will come in a future update. The Goal.com app is supported on both the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q10 and I imagine it'll only be a little bit before they add BlackBerry Q5 to the listing as well, since it technically already works. If you're a soccer fan, you can download the app by hitting the link below.

Americans, it's called football not soccer.

i think you have it the other way around. football in america is the rough sport with a lot of tackling and consists of an oval ball. soccer is what europeans called football where you kick a ball on a field into other teams net... unless of course you were being sarcastic, but being on the net, sarcasim is quite hard to catch...

nvm i mis-read, although they do call it soccer because there is another sport called football

Yes. Clearly the sport you kick a ball with your foot is not called football. On the other hand a sport whereby you run holding a ball with your hands and throw it to other players with your hands is called football.

What was the rest of the world thinking. :)

Been waiting 5 months for the app and it's garbage! No sharing options, no bbm connectivity, no videos, no push notifications, no fave team tab, no live twitter feed built into the app. Poor attempt by goal.com

Wow thanks for the mini review. Guess I will avoid this app completely.

Honestly, its not bad. And its free. Anyone with a problem should contact the developer and offer to pay for it.

the_igg

Yeah and it's not even a Cascades app. Very disappointing... :(

After having seen Goal.com post "exclusives" taken directly from other websites with no mention of the original, I told myself I would no longer read their content. Much better sources exist, particularly those with journalistic integrity.

Feels like a cheezy android port. Oh wait.

Posted via CB10

the_igg

It's not an Android port. But it's not built in Cascades either. Damn, I was so excited for this app. Now I just feel like a chum

Posted via CB10

djraz_official

Lol. Hence "feels like".

Unfortunately there's no comment function.

Bla1ze

Is that a lack of function...or an intended "feature"? LOL

Idiot comments are the hallmark of goal.

Guys, it's their first bb1 app. The updates will come in iterations. I'm glad it's native.

amp323

Umm, no? They had a PlayBook app that stopped working around 6 months ago and had 0 support at all. They should have done a better job for this app..

Posted via CB10

the_igg

It may be native, but it's not written in Cascades. This app would be great with Cascades. It's just a HTML 5 app

Football = foot and ball
American "football" is mainly in the hands
It dosnt need brain! Just common sense.
It should be called american Handball.

I don't like those that seem to be cascades, but then don't have working gestures. Lol

It's not Cascades. Pretty sure it's HTML 5. I'm disappointed by this.

Well it's a first release and they went native with this one. I am sure they will improve upon it! I'd say thanks Goal.com for coming on board with a native app!

Posted via CB10

the_igg

Native HTML 5 app. But not native Cascades app unfortunately...

I finally realized why those silly soccer announcers get so worked up when somebody scores a goal. It's because it only happens every few days.

Man, soccer is boring.

No need to rub it in! :)
