Top 5 Firefox Add-Ons For Soccer Fans

In the latest browser wars, the browser usage statistics show that Firefox has almost 50% of the market share. Other than how easier it is to use and how fast it is, one of the reasons web users love Firefox is because of their massive library of add-ons. So since we’re all soccer fans, I thought I’d share five favorite Firefox add-ons — and they’re all free.

  1. FootieFox: This is without a doubt the best Firefox add-on out there for soccer fans. It updates you via your browser whenever a goal is scored in 200 leagues and cup tournaments from 60 countries worldwide. The add-on integrates into the bottom right corner of your Firefox browser, and features several configurations and options so you can read match reports, latest scores, team details and more. Available at
  2. Hattrick LiveFox: If you’ve played the online game Hattrick before, you know that it’s free and incredibly addictive. But it’s also a pain to keep track of the live games. Thankfully, there’s a Firefox add-on that does that for you where you can watch up to 10 matches at the same time with feedback on the type of chances or goals scored as well as a live updating league table. Available at
  3. Real Football: This Firefox add-on allows you to change the design of your Firefox browser to a soccer theme. It changes the color scheme to a light green and displays soccer-related icons. Available at
  4. Euro Football: This add-on too changes the design of your Firefox browser into an unmistakeable soccer look-and-feel. The design is clean and it’s a good way to remind you and your friends what is your favorite sport. Available at
  5. SoccerFox SVG: The last Firefox add-on out of the five is also a soccer theme add-on, which allows you to turn your Firefox into a soccer-themed browser. This one is quite different though. Instead of looking sleak and modern, the design goes for a retro 8-bit look-and-feel (see preview here). Available at

If you don’t have Firefox, download the free browser today from Mozilla at And you can search through the entire Add-ons directory to find more great timesavers.

    I just installed FootieFox and it seems pretty glitchy to me. It’s great if you just want to follow the EPL and other big leagues, but for people wanting to follow the Conference, A-League, J-League etc. too much of it is screwed up.

    Thank you for posting this. I am a dedicated Firefox user (who would use IE on purpose?), but I never bothered to look at the add-ons.

    While I didn’t install any of the above I found a bunch of others that are really cool/helpful.

    Thanks again. You guys do a great job. You’re my #1 soccer site.

    Wow. Thanks. I had no idea about this stuff.

    FootieFox will definitely come in handy for those soccer fans who work 9-5 in offices and are unable to watch games live. Whenever a goal is scored, the browser pops up with a “Goal” message and tells you what the scoreline is for that game. Definitely very handy indeed.

    Firefox is by far the best browser. A great non-soccer related add-on is XMarks. Keeps your bookmarks updated and consistent on every computer you have it installed. So if I add a bookmark at work, it’ll be on my bookmarks at home.

    Cool add-on list. I think I’d hate FootieFox more than the ESPN ticker, though. Most of the time, I don’t WANT to know the scores. :)

    good point, Gaz.

  7. Matt says:

    Umm… is it me? Or is the Kicker Web site only in german?

    *Commercial message warning* If you’re a fan of the MLS, search for “MLS” at You’ll see a full range of Booms! (combination of theme & extensions) that Brand Thunder created for the MLS. And stay tuned for our first entry into UK football coming soon. I’m with the company that makes them, so wanted full disclosure here.
