Football Podcasts are getting more attention lately. More football fans today would rather listen to podcasts than Radio. In fact, some prefer listening to football podcasts to reading articles. Why? Because podcasts can be minimized while doing other activities but reading doesn’t work that way. In this post, you’ll find a unique list of the best football podcasts from around the world.
The list is unique (just like every other article on Soofootball) because it is not based on some random google search. We generated the list from an opinion poll where real fans recommended podcasts based on their own experience, not hearsay.
So, here we compiled a list of the best football podcasts to listen to. Never mind the order. They are all valuable.
1. The Soofootball Show
Overall, the podcast is all about reactions and interactions about all major football events and competitions.
The show is anchored by Stephen Oyelabi but he sometimes invites guests to the show.
Another interesting thing about the podcast is that you get to hear undiluted personal opinions, especially from a fan’s perspective.
Beyond just the football talk, it’s fun listening to the show.
2. The gab & Juls show
A large group of our respondents like the Gab & Juls Show. The show is a product of Popular ESPN and Gabriele Marcotti and Julien Laurens anchor it, hence the name Gab & Juls.
