Barclays kick out top notch Android/iPhone Premier League app

Underlining their status as the official sponsors of the English Premier League, Barclays Bank have hoofed an official app into the air to mark the start of the season.

Barclays kick out top notch Android/iPhone Premier League app

The slick new app serves up a ton of football related stats, facts and figures, pumping out live text commentary and latest scores  on match days, backed by a feast of footie facts for perusing over a half time pie.

These includes match, team and player specific stats like possession, shots and goals, plus fixture lists, tables and results.


There’s a Ticket Office contest offering free game tickets along with the inevitable social networking bolt ons like in-app Facebook chat and augmented reality views of every stadium.

Unfortunately the app doesn’t cover the Championship where the greatest team in the known universe, Cardiff City, seem doomed to ply their wares for ever. Sigh.

The app is free and available for the iPhone and Android. Download it here: Phone and Android.
Here’s the official guff:
