Town Top League One iFollow Table
Thursday, 3rd Jun 2021 11:00
The EFL have confirmed that Town were League One's most-watched club on iFollow during 2020/21.
In email to subscribers, the EFL listed the Blues as the most-watched team in League One followed by Portsmouth and Plymouth.
In the Championship Norwich City, Nottingham Forest and Luton Town headed the list and in League Two Bolton Wanderers, Bradford City and Tranmere Rovers were the top three.
Early in the season, Town averaged sales of around 2,300 match passes for home games in addition to season ticket holders. Away from home, the Blues were averaging around 3,300 match passes per game at that point.
More than one fan was able to watch each stream so it was impossible to equate match pass sales and season ticket holder redemptions to an ‘attendance’, although the Blues calculated that around 75 per cent of season ticket holders watched the Rochdale game in September given the number of fans living in the same households.
Match passes cost £10 but with £2 of that figure covering admin costs for the EFL. Clubs agreed how the revenue was split based where possible around the previous season’s away attendance. If the clubs were unable to agree terms the EFL arbitrated.
The EFL say 360,000 fans, including 160,000 season ticket holders, watched their team on iFollow during 2020/21 with 1,659 games streamed, equating to 805 million minutes of live football.

How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues 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.
Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative and Don’t Mess with Mr Inbetween by dusth
Tracking through the forums and reading the comments on TWTD is a weird rollercoaster these days, more extremely polarised and more vitriolic than I can remember. We’ve never fallen so far and regretted it so much.
