Town Issue iFollow Match Streaming Details
Wednesday, 2nd Sep 2020 12:15
Town have issued details of how fans will be able to watch matches via iFollow Ipswich once the season gets under way.
The Blues begin their 2020/21 campaign on Saturday when the face Bristol Rovers at home in the first round of the Carabao Cup with an EFL Trophy game against Arsenal’s U21s at Portman Road on Tuesday. Their League One fixtures start on Sunday 13th September when Wigan Athletic visit Suffolk.
While matches are being played behind closed doors or with limited crowds, season ticket holders can watch league games for free via iFollow with other supporters able to watch most matches at a cost of £10. The club has issued question and answers outlining how things will work.
So for anyone who doesn’t know, what is iFollow?
It’s run under the EFL umbrella with a vast majority of clubs from the EFL having their own iFollow service. Over the last couple of years clubs have been allowed to stream games live that aren’t played at the weekend and don’t clash with Sky’s live coverage.
With 2020/21 starting behind closed doors though, the EFL and Sky have struck up a deal that now allows clubs to stream their league games live regardless of when they are played. And season ticket holders can watch home league games for free.
If I’m a Town season ticket holder how do I watch home games then?
How do I do that?
So what happens after that?
When do I receive my promotion code?
But Town’s first league game of the season, against Wigan on Sunday 13th September, is live on Sky. How will this be different?

How do I watch cup games then?
How do I do that?
What about away matches, is iFollow showing them live as well?

Will season ticket holders get free access to iFollow to watch home league games all through 2020/21?

Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
From Marcus's Side of the Fence by essexccc
Most of the thinking, including my own, around the possible sale of the club, has quite naturally focused on the possibilities from the club's and supporters' points of view.
