Top Five Ways to Stay in Touch with the Beautiful Game

Soccer Ball

The Coronavirus might have put a holt on football for the time being but there are many ways of staying in touch with the beautiful game! Check out Aaron Crowie’s top five list below of ways to stay connected to footie. 

5. Books ๐Ÿ“™

If you’re a bookworm, there is plenty of literature out there you entertained while we remain on lockdown. What’s more, in this day and age, you can get just about any book digitally. Here are three of my personal favourites.

o             How Soccer Explains the World by Franklin Foer
o             The Ball is Round by David Goldblatt
o             Football Against the Enemy by Simon Kuper

There are also enough great autobiographies on some of the biggest names to have played or managed the game, including Sir Alex Ferguson, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pele and more!

4. Movies ๐Ÿ“ฝ️

You might be more inclined to chill on your couch and catch a footie flick! If that’s the case, there are a few awesome soccer scopes to leave you at the edge of your seat.

o             Bend It Like Beckham
o             Goal 1, 2 & 3
o             Green Street Hooligans
o             Kicking & Screaming
o             Mean Machine
o             Pelรฉ: Birth of a Legend

3. Gaming ๐Ÿ•น️

If gaming is your thing then bust out the PlayStation/XBox/Nintendo and let your fingers do the talking! If you are under lockdown with your family, a soccer gaming tournament is the perfect way to pass the time. On the other hand, if it’s just you and the Mrs, use this time to teach her, and that way when lockdown is over, she too can embarrass your friends or avenge your last thrashing. Some might be alone under lockdown and that’s fine as well, there’s always the exciting challenge of manager mode to get stuck into.

2. Bet on Hollywoodbets' Electronic Soccer Leagues๐ŸŽฎ

eSports has very quickly become a global phenomenon, quickly catching up to traditional sports in terms of popularity and viewership around the world. Of course, where there is top quality competitive action, there is always an opportunity to have a bet!

1. Kick Around/Practice your Skills at Home ⚽๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝ

The first thing you learn as a footballer is stick to the basics. With that being said, if you have no internet access, games, books or movies at home, simply grab a ball and practice your skills. If you don't have a ball, it’s no problem, you can use anything from a toilet roll to an empty water bottle.
