EFL Matches to Be Streamed Live in UK and Ireland
Thursday, 21st Jun 2018 10:21

Town fans based in the UK and the Republic of Ireland will be able to watch some Blues matches live on iFollow Ipswich for the first time during 2018/19.

Last season, the service was introduced for fans overseas but in the season ahead clubs will be able to stream Sky Bet EFL matches to those closer to home.

According to the official site: “This development has been made possible due to the new broadcast agreement with Sky which was agreed last year, whereby EFL clubs have been granted the rights to stream games to a domestic audience in addition to their followers overseas, which has been available since the start of 2017/18.

“EFL clubs will be able to live-stream in the UK and Ireland any league match via their respective iFollow (or equivalent) service that takes place outside the blocked hours of 14.45-17.15 on Saturday afternoons and that is not broadcast live on Sky Sports. Fixtures taking place on Bank Holidays or Easter will be unavailable for streaming.

“Sky Sports will have the right to stream the same Championship fixtures to subscribers across their interactive and digital services. Details of how to access EFL matches domestically will be announced in due course.”

The iFollow service will also be enhanced for the season ahead: “Improved production values are being implemented across the online broadcasting service, providing clubs with the scope to introduce bespoke commentary as well as on-screen graphics.

“Some midweek Championship matches will also benefit from a four camera set-up while additional enhancements to iFollow include more in-game statistics via the app, mobile/desktop websites and an improved match centre.”

The price of an International Season Pass, which is available now, remains at £110 with further details on the club website.

This is a service that I've wanted for years of living abroad, but with the style of football last year, I wasn't going to waste my time or money. I'll seriously consider it this year.

Anyone got the time to look at how many games that would mean we could see Town for, provisionally?

By our current fixtures list, I count 9 games that out watchable. Basically any game that’s not kickin off at 3pm...

I only count 8. I think you might have included a Bank Holiday one. Those 8 also depend on Sky not televising any of them.
