The 2022 FIFA World Cup is officially underway in Qatar and this time the tournament is a special one for Canadians as the men’s national team qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 36 years.
We have published a guide explaining how to watch the tournament in Canada online. However, considering that most games start between 5am and 2pm ET (2am/2pm PT), Canadians may not have the time to sit down and watch the games live.
We’ve compiled a list of some useful mobile apps that can help you stay in the World Cup 2022 loop, including fixtures and results, so you don’t miss any of the action while you’re busy with other daily life activities.
