The Tech You Need to Bring Soccer Excitement Home

These apps and accessories will help you live all the soccer action at home—especially as the tournament heats up.

Watch all the soccer action at home, and make sure you’ve scored the tech you need to see every goal.

Celebrate Brazilian traditions

If you’re watching the big soccer games at home, make sure you have a tablet nearby. You don’t want to run to the kitchen for a snack and hear “GOOOOOOALLLLL!!!” in the living room. Stream live games with WatchESPN or WATCH ABC on your tablet so you won’t miss the next big header or dramatic ending—even when you have to take the dog out or check on the kids in the next room. Check out the Sony Xperia® Z2 Tablet and its 10.1 Full HD TRILUMINOS™display with Sony BRAVIA® mobile TV technologies.

Don’t forget about the music. Blast your favorite Brazilian samba through a Bluetooth® speaker, such as the Beats Pill XL™ or MINI JAMBOX® by Jawbone®. Connect wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth-enabled device to easily switch between Shakira and traditional Brazilian music—without getting up from your front-row seat in your living room.

During games and tournaments, Marcelo Ramos, a Brazilian native and soccer player, says, “[Brazilian] communities paint the streets green and yellow and compete with each other to see who has the most spirit.” Pick your favorite team, grab some paint or sidewalk chalk and let the creativity flow! Get the kids in on the fun, too. With the Crayola® DigiTools™ Deluxe Pack, they can create no-ink, no-mess art in support of their favorite country’s team.
