As promised, the official iPhone and iPad apps of the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) have received follow-up updates ahead of the kickoff of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Last week, FIFA Official App for iPhone and FIFA for iPad received similar updates, bringing both apps to version 2.0.

In addition to the app’s usual offerings, including breaking news, interviews, photos, videos, and live scores from 197 leagues around the world, version 2.0 of the apps offered several notable pre-tournament features. These included the latest World Cup news, detailed profiles of the players and coaches from the 32 competing teams, and the schedule of all 64 games of the tournament. The updated apps also allowed users to explore the host country Brazil and its participating stadiums and cities.

Now, both apps have just been updated to version 2.1, enabling users to do more in celebration of the highly anticipated sporting event.
