DISH has updated its Hopper sports app, Game Finder, to include football: fans now have the ability to keep up with stats and scores of nine premier football leagues, as well as the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying rounds.

The updated Game Finder app, part of the Hopper with Sling Whole-Home HD DVR, features up-to-the-minute stats, scores and listings for Spain's La Liga, the English Premier League, UEFA Champions League, Italy's Serie A, Bundesliga (Germany), the Netherlands' Eredivisie, Major League Soccer, and Liga MX and Copa MX. This new offering adds to the app's existing list of sports, which includes MLB, NBA, NCAAF, NCAAB, NFL and NHL.

"Soccer is the world's most popular sport, and being in the thick of World Cup qualifiers, we wanted to give our customers the ability to easily follow the teams they love," said Jimshade Chaudhari, director of digital product management at DISH. "We are excited about the upcoming FIFA World Cup and are pleased to add soccer to our popular Game Finder app in time for fans to enjoy all the action."

The updated app will also enable DISH customers to view scores of games from earlier in the day and from the previous day. The app will continue to feature live game scores, upcoming start times and on-screen updates displaying the most exciting live games using Thuuz technology. Fans can also customise the app to display their favourite teams, and locate and record upcoming games.
