    Hello Openminded,

    If you say;

    I'll play football tomorrow at 3. (will start)
    I'll be playing football tomorrow at 3. (in progress/ started earlier)

    It can also make a statement sound as though it had been planned or arranged before the time of speaking.

    1) I'll come and see you tomorrow. (The decision to come and see you was made at the time of speaking)

    (The decision to come and see you was made as I was speaking to you.)

    2) I'll be coming to see you tomorrow. (The decision to come and see you was made before the time of speaking)

    (The decision to come and see you had been made before this conversation and perhaps I'm just informing or reminding you of this visit.)
