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.

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...

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.

Oh wow alll this time and they didn't even put any of these main options in it?! Wow just wow!

Well dont just bitch at least they made an app.Contact them let them know in your app review of what is needed for the app to better help the developer help you and get a better app experience.

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.

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

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

Posted via CB10

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

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.

You have no idea how many times I emailed goal.com to make an app. Thanks Sooooooooo much!!!

Posted via CB10

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

It's fútbol the greatest sport in the world, nothing like Andrés Cantor calling gol gol gol goooool

Posted via CB10

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!

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.
