Watching live football on TV is always an amazing experience. But when you can't be near the television, or don't want to pay the high prices for sports channels, you'll find that streaming live football is a cheaper and more convenient way to watch.
We've looked previously at free sports streaming sites, but today we're going to concentrate on the best sites for live streaming football in the UK.
You'll be able to compare both paid and free football streaming sites, and decide which one is best for you.
Stream all BT Sport live football, including Premier League, Champions League & Europa League. Works on Smart TV, Laptop, Mobile, Desktop, Tablet & Console.
No ties, no contract and no BT broadband needed.
The BT monthly pass costs £25 and you can cancel any time.
Wide range of live streaming football matches including EFL Championship, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and many more top leagues worldwide.
No charge to watch, all you need is a funded bet365 account.
18+, Some Ts & Cs and country restrictions apply. Further details below.
Amazon Prime won the rights to show 23 live Premier League matches per season. These fixtures take place in early December, and in Boxing Day week.
So if you want to stream live football in the UK, then December is a great month to have Amazon Prime.
With a 30 day FREE trial available, you can potentially stream all the live games without paying a penny.
Much more than just a boxing channel, DAZN also streams a huge amount of live women's football from the UK and all around Europe.
They are also the official Premier League broadcaster in Canada.
At just £7.99/month it's a very affordable way to stream live football (and other sports too), and there is no contract so you can cancel any time.
The BBC iPlayer is FREE to use in the UK, as long as you have a TV license.
You can use it to stream live football, including FA Cup, Scottish FA Cup, World Cup, Euros, Africa Cup of Nations, WSL, and Northern Irish Premiership.
Plus there's the weekly Premier League highlights on Match of the Day.
Live football streaming on the ITV Hub includes FA Cup, England international matches, World Cup qualifiers and finals, European Championship qualifiers and finals.
You can also watch replays of classic football matches with The Big Match Revisited.
FREE to watch if you have a UK TV license.
fuboTV gives you access to all the US sports channels, all on live streaming without cable.
That means you get all the live Premier League and Champions League matches, including those that are not shown on UK TV due to the 3pm blackout!
It is only available in the US, Canada and Spain, so if you live outside these countries you will need a VPN to access the fuboTV streaming service.
iFollow is the official live streaming service for fans of EFL clubs. You simply choose your club, then select a live streaming package to suit your budget.
The basic package is free, but does not include live games. To watch live streaming video, you need the Video Match Pass, which costs £10.
iFollow is quite pricey when you consider that Championship matches are available with no subscription fees at bet365, but it does mean you get to follow the exact matches you want.
The following sites also provide some form of live football in the UK. They aren't as good (or as popular) as the sites listed above, which is why we've not categorised them as the "best" streaming sites, but they do provide some limited matches than might be good for people with specific needs, or if you're just stuck for something to watch.
The FreeSports channel offers free live streaming via their online player, which is available on their website or as an Android or iPhone app (listed on Google Play and App Store). You'll need to register a free account with them to watch.
FreeSports shows a lot of cricket and ice hockey, but there's some live football as well, from the MLS, La Liga, Portugal, Poland and the Japanese J-League. Check the FreeSports TV schedule to find out what's on this week - all the same events are streamed live.
YouTube shows a limited amount of free live football matches, often from obscure and little known leagues such as Nepal, Russia and Georgia.
So don't expect to see any of the world's top teams or big name players live on YouTube, but if you're a die hard football fan you might just find something here that you've never seen before.
Live YouTube, you can find a few less well known teams and matches streaming live on Facebook. It's often a good way to watch amateur or semi-pro football from the lower leagues of the pyramid (below National League level) but again you won't find any of the big matches here.
Hesgoal is an illegal streaming site, so technically you are breaking the law if you choose to watch it. There are other reasons why you might want to think twice before visiting here as well - see our Hesgoal review and FAQ to find out more.
However, if you do decide to take the risk, and if you can find a working stream, then technically it is possible to watch premium football matches on live streaming at this site.
Like Hesgoal, CricHD is a well known illegal site that streams live football as well as cricket and other sports. Again, I recommend you weigh up the pros and cons of watching CricHD before you even decide to visit the site.
There are premium matches streamed live here. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't, and it depends whether you're comfortable with the risks. Personally I would advise you to try the recommended sites listed above before resorting to either Hesgoal or CricHD.
