Following on apps
Follow live matches on apps like sky, the football app, and zeebox. Get news, commentaries and goal alerts from these apps and many more like them. The football app especially, no longer focuses on news and notifications, but has enabled chatting among fans through a feature called the Fan Zone. On Fan Zone, you can see what other fans are saying about the team, you can chat, have discussions, and even comment. And on the team app, you can follow up on coming events.
There is also a chance that you will meet team players in public places by subscribing to a mailing list that will notify you of upcoming public events and some pre-season training camps which are sometimes open to the public and fans are allowed to watch. However, you have to be cautious meeting a player or a team in a public place, as it may appear disrespectful if they are having a time out with friends or family.
