“Let’s face it, fans are busier than ever and can’t be in front of the TV or at the stadium for all the matches as we’d like. At ESPN, we understand that fans want their football wherever they are,” said Tom Gleeson, vice president, digital media, ESPN International. “The new, free ESPN Goals app delivers Premier League fans the essential mobile app, keeping them connected to all the goals and highlights, all season long. In its first season ESPN Goals showed advertisers the audience that they can reach on mobile. In season two we want to connect even more fans to all the goals from every match in the Barclays Premier League.”
