Mobile recycling may enable fans to keep in touch with football

With the football season underway once more, fans may find recycling an old mobile and investing in a new smartphone is the best way to stay in touch with the sport.

Research by Experian Hitwise shows visits to popular football websites have soared over the last week.

Whether it be transfer speculation, news of managerial casualties or simply following the scores on a Saturday afternoon, accessing sites and apps via a smartphone may be the best way to keep up to date.

The organisation's study reveals the number of people heading to BBC Sport in the seven days in the run-up to the Premier League kick-off rose by 12 per cent.

Meanwhile, traffic at Sky Sports' online home surged by 15 per cent and the official Fantasy Premier League site reported a 186 per cent hike in visitors.

Among the highlights for those following the opening day action on their smartphones were Blackpool's 4-0 win against Wigan and Chelsea's 6-0 demolition of West Bromwich Albion.
