Best football-related YouTube & Instagram accounts to follow during coronavirus isolation

The spread of COVID-19, more commonly referred to as the coronavirus, has seen the footballing world brought very close to a standstill.

Major competitions such as the Premier League, EFLSerie A and La Liga have all been suspended for the time being, whilst both the Euros and the Copa America have been pushed back to 2021.

Many people around the world have been asked to either self-isolate or begin social distancing in a bid to stop the spread of the virus.

As a result, you may find yourself with a lot more spare time on your hands. And with the majority of football cancelled for the time being, people will no doubt be looking at other ways to entertain themselves during this difficult period.

Here at 101, we have already provided you with a list of football-related podcasts, documentaries and movies to watch during the coronavirus outbreak.

And now, we are offering you a list of YouTube and Instagram accounts to check out, should you find yourself having to self-isolate.

If you are unable to access any of these sites from your location, our advice is to download & install ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN unlocks the internet, bypasses geo-blocking, and enables you to access endless high-quality content from anywhere on the planet.

With this in mind, here are some of the best football-related YouTube & Instagram accounts to follow over the next few months.

Bundesliga (YouTube)

The official Bundesliga YouTube channel is arguably one of the most entertaining out of the major European league channels.

Boasting over 1.85 million subscribers, the channel is jam-packed with content, and they upload at least once a day.

Whilst some official league sites are just full of highlights from games, which are obviously not taking place at this moment, the Bundesliga has a variety of content such as FIFA related videos and player-focused analysis, like the below piece on Timo Werner.

True Geordie/The Kick Off (YouTube)

For those interested in something more similar to that of a podcast-type setup, the True Geordie and his related channels should be very interesting.

True Geordie’s main channel features a host of top interviews, including a handful with footballing legends such as Alan Shearer and Ian Wright.

True Geordie also runs a second channel, ‘The Kick Off’, which is more focused around debates.

BR Football (YouTube & Instagram)

Bleacher Report Football is available to follow on both YouTube and Instagram.

The YouTube channel is generally filled with FIFA related content or discussions, such as this one concerning Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

BR Football’s Instagram account also generally has some funny videos to keep you entertained.
