theScore was again the go-to app for football fans on the first weekend of the season. Three million fans accessed our app on iOS and Android across the first full weekend of football season, with 2.3 million coming to us on Sunday alone.
Fans ate-up our coverage from across the league, with more than two thirds of visitors to the app on the first Sunday of the season coming from the United States, another 27% from Canada and the remainder from all over the world.
In terms of most popular teams on theScore, the Patriots, Cowboys and Packers are the top three sides users have decided to follow, with the option of receiving a range of notification options including Game Start, Game End, Every Scoring Play, Red Zone, Score – Each Quarter, Close Game, Turnovers and Breaking News.
Meanwhile, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Rob Gronkowski are the three top-followed players with theScore’s users, signing-up to receive alerts including Touchdowns, Fumbles, Receptions, 40 Yard Receptions, Game Milestones, Final Player Stats and Breaking News.
