As football fans, we all love to keep in with the latest news and gossip that is going on in the footballing world. From transfer rumours to ownership changes to whatever scandal is taking place at the football club you support, football fans are always tuned in.
One of the best and most modern ways to keep in the loop is to listen to podcasts, the media outlet that has suddenly taken over our lives in the last decade.
Whilst radio shows are still a thing, podcasts provide an easy-to-listen accessible alternative.
But what are the best football podcasts for matchgoing fans? What podcasts give fans a bit more knowledge about the game they love? Here are a few that we have found that some may or may not have heard of. Some are quite mainstream while some of them are quite niche. Either way, all of them are great listeners.

A simple, yet effective name for a football podcast, and it is exactly what it says on the tin. Football Ramble is a mix of serious discussion, mad stories, and a bit of messing about inbetween. It covers all the bases, delving into the heights of the Premier League while also including stories and news from the lower leagues.
It is produced three times a week, which means it is also keeping up to date with the going-ons in the footballing world, and it's one that football fans love to listen to while heading to a match.
No, it isn’t a podcast just solely for stadiums, however, they do cover a lot of ground in the footballing world in this football podcast. Ryan Hunn and Musa Okwonga produce their podcast twice a week, giving football fans all the latest news and updates from the European Leagues that we love to watch.

Best football podcasts UK: Niche choices
A lesser-known podcast, The Sweeper – hosted by Lee Wingate and Paul Wason – covers the little stories you may not have heard of in the footballing world. Mainly documenting European football, the duo zones in on the smaller nations, giving insights into bizarre stats and facts from countries and leagues outside of the top five divisions. If you are into your niche football, then this is the podcast for you.
It's niche, but you might be into it. Three English hosts give fantastic insight into one of the lesser-known leagues in European football, the Austrian Bundesliga. The guys regularly attend matches and give updates via their Twitter accounts while bringing all the charm and knowledge one would want when listening to a football podcast. It's a little bit different, but definitely worth a listen.
