So if you are a football enthusiast like all of us, you must be wondering how you can watch these exciting matches from the comfort of your home? Well, there are two ways you can watch Football on Firestick. The first is the free method. It doesn’t cost you anything. You just need to have a Firestick device and a working internet connection. The second is the premium method. This method requires you to spend a little cash to watch your favorite game on TV live. 

Let’s take a look!

How to stream safely 

Hold on for a moment!

If you opt for method one and decide to watch Football for free, you need a VPN. Streaming free Football is never safe. Most of the time, the free services use illegal streaming links. Using these links can get you in trouble with the legal authorities. That’s why we recommend using a VPN service to hide your tracks and keep your streaming secure for all intents and purposes. And not just hide your tracks; a VPN goes beyond that. It also helps you unlock any geo-restricted content and sometimes helps boost up your internet speed.

The recommended VPN for Streaming – IPVanish VPN 

That brings us to one of the most commonly asked questions: What’s the best VPN for streaming?

Long-time readers of our website already know the answer. But, if you are new, our most recommended VPN for streaming is IPVanish. There are several reasons we recommend IPVanish for streaming. Here’s a breakdown for your information: 

  1. It’s the fastest VPN service currently active. There’s no throttling. You get the ideal speed for streaming. Otherwise, most VPNs slow down your internet.
  2. It has over 2000 servers spread across 70+ locations in the world. That means IPVanish never goes out of service. 
  3. With one IPVanish subscription, you can get up to 10 simultaneous connections. That means you can connect your laptop, PC, TV screen, smartphones, tablets, and more at the same time. 
  4. It has excellent location spoofing ability. You can change your location with the click of a single button. If a particular content is blocked in your territory, don’t worry! IPVanish lets you switch to another region very quickly. 
  5. It has a very affordable cost and comes with 30 days money-back guarantee

Method 1: Free Method 

As you can tell by the name, the free method lets you watch football matches live absolutely free of cost. It uses Amazon’s default web browser Silk to streaming football directly to your tv screen. You can use this method anywhere in the world, without any problem. Just make sure you are using a reliable VPN service such as IPVanish to secure your privacy on the internet. Below is a step-by-step method to help you guide through the process to stream free live Football.

How to Watch Live Football Matches on Amazon Silk Browser 

Note: If you already have Silk browser in your Firestick, skip the first four steps and go directly to Step 5.

Step 1: First of all, power on your Firestick. On your home screen, click on the search icon you see on the top left corner of the screen.

That’s all. Enjoy live streaming from the comfort of your couch without spending a dime. 

Method 2: Premium Method 

The second method to watch live Football is the premium method. In this method, you have to subscribe to any live sports TV service such as Sling TV, Fubo, or Youtube TV. We prefer Youtube TV because it is more reliable and convenient for most people. Plus, it streams almost every football event. So you will never miss out on an important match. If you live outside of the US, you will need to use the IPVanish app to circumvent the geo-restrictions. 

How to Watch Live Football Matches on FireStick with YouTube TV

Other Methods

Method 1: Use third-party Android streaming applications

As you know, Firestick comes with the Fire OS. It’s an Android-based operating system. It means you can run almost any android app on this device. As most streaming apps are aimed at android users, Firestick has become a popular choice among video streaming enthusiasts and cord-cutters alike. 

Firestick streaming apps let you stream and download literally thousands of Live TV channels from all over the world. This includes many Sports channels because sports are a very popular means of entertainment. You can watch Sky Sports, Premier Sports, TenSports, BeIN, DAXN, SuperSports, EuroSport, ESPN, and others. 

While there are several Live sports apps, we have listed down our top choices to make your selection a breeze. These apps come with a dedicated sports section and have a very user-friendly interface. Therefore, you can easily find your preferred channel on these platforms and start live streaming.

Amazon Prime

Amazon’s Prime Video is an official broadcaster of Premier League Football. Therefore, it will show the entire round of matches throughout the 20/21 football season. If you have a Prime Video subscription in the UK, you can watch it for free. Other regions in the world will have to use a VPN service to circumvent the geo-restrictions. 

What makes Prime Video stand out in this list is its X-Ray feature. This feature is handy for fantasy football superfans who want to stay up-to-date on all crucial insights and stats. It also lets you watch replays, besides listing stats such as completion running speeds, probability, and time the QB has been in your pocket.

BBC iPlayer

BBC iPlayer is another excellent option for people in the UK. It’s a VOD and Live TV service from BBC. It has licensing contracts with multiple live sports organizations offering all FA Cup fixtures and UEFA Euro, Scottish Premiership, and FA Women’s Super League. 

Furthermore, BBC iPlayer lets you watch all the Premier League highlights. Oh, and not to mention, BBC iPlayer airs Match of the Day. If you are a football enthusiast, you cannot miss Gary Lineker’s commentary on matches. If you are watching from other world regions, you may have to use a VPN like IPVanish to bypass geo-restrictions. 

ITV Hub

ITV Hub is also a UK-based VOD service. It’s another popular VOD service with over 29 million subscribers. It provides unrestricted access to most of the content that airs on ITV, ITV 2, ITV 3, ITV 4, ITV Be, and CITV. You can also watch some of the shows on demand. 

The only problem with this service is that its contents keep on changing. All shows arrive for a limited period after they air on TV. Among the events, you can watch England’s GIGA World Cup 2022 qualifiers, pre-tournament friendly fixtures and Live coverage of the entire schedule of the UEFA Euro 2020 cup. 

TV Player 

TV Player is a premium Live TV service in the UK. With its VOD service, you can easily catch up on different one month old TV programs. It has over 40 channels, including BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, Channel 4, and Channel 5, among popular choices. 

But, keep in mind not all programs will be available on all streaming devices due to licensing agreements and legal restrictions. To overcome that problem, simply use a VPN if you are not based in the UK. This way, you can watch almost all the programs without any blocks. 

Method 2: Use Kodi to watch Football on Firestick 

Another great way to watch live Football on Firestick is with the help of Kodi apps. Kodi is a famous media center and lets you watch any football event provided you have downloaded the right add-ons. Kodi addons pull links from the internet let you watch the streams free of cost. Below are some popular Kodi addons for Football. 

Kodi Add-on – TvTap 

A very popular addon, TvTap doesn’t really specialize in sports, but it has an excellent selection of Football Channels. You can access its football channels via the sports section. The impressive sports section lets you watch any sport you can name. No jokes!

However, keep in mind, this addon requires Kodi v18+. If you are using an older version of Kodi, try updating. You can also uninstall the app and install it again to get the latest version. Also, don’t forget to use a reliable VPN service like Ipvanish to avoid any ISP throttling.

Kodi Add-on – Rising Tides 

The next Kodi addon on our list is Rising Tides. It’s a sports and IPTV addon, considered ideal for streaming live sports events. What differentiates Rising Tides from the others is its impressive content organization. You can access both the on-demand content and Live content very easily. 

Football is available under the subsections of Live Football, Extra Live Content and Live PPV events. The live football section has all the currently playing events. With just a single click, you can see all the links for streaming. These links become live five minutes before a match starts.

Kodi Add-on – Sportowa 

Finally, we have Sportowa. If Rising Tide is down for you, try Sportowa. It provides links to Live events just like the Rising Tide addon. But, there’s a twist. Sportowa improves on the Rising Tide’s approach to links and adds additional scrappers to links. These include Strims World, Sports Bay, and Sports 365 live. 

These scrappers make content search easy peasy lemon squeazy. On Sportowa you can watch football events from all across the world. There’s no streaming limit and no throttling unless you are using a VPN like IPVanish. Like Rising Tides, the links come online a few minutes before an event goes live. 


With that said, we hope you now know how to watch Football on Firestick live. There’s no need to rely on cable TV or a traditional Satellite link anymore. With these apps, you can cut the cord, pay little to no fees and enjoy your favorite football matches of any national or international event. You just need a little extra pocket money for security as you need a VPN to protect your privacy.

That’s all for now.

Happy streaming and have fun!
