Even more teams added to Microsoft's Windows 8 sports app

A couple of days ago, we reported that Microsoft had issued an update to its in-house Sports app for Windows 8. As it turns out, the release notes for that update didn't give all of the information included in the update.

Today, the official Bing blog announced that the Sports app had added coverage of NCAA basketball, right in the middle of the season and just a few weeks away from when "March Madness" is due to start. In addition there's new coverage of NCAA football, but obviously there won't be a lot of activity for that section of the app until later in the year.

Coverage of Moto GP racing has also been added, which is the global high end motorcycle racing league. Its 2013 season is not scheduled to start until early April.

Finally, the app has added even more soccer leagues to the mix. They include Allsvenskan (SE), Serie B (IT), Liga Adelante (ES), T-Mobile Ekstraklasa (PL), South Africa PSL (ZA), Saudi Arabia Pro League (SA), Turkish Super Lig (TR), K-League (KR), Jupiler Pro League (BE), Tippeligaen (No), UK League 1, UK League 2 (UK), Bundesliga 2 (DE ), Ligue 2 (FR), Dutch Eredivisie (NL), Argentina Primera División (AR), Portugal Primeira League (PT) and AU Australian A League (AU).

An error in your list. There is no such thing as "UK League 1". It is English League 1. Scotland and Wales have their own football leagues (although the big Welsh teams play in the English leagues).
