EFL Agree To Streaming Live Matches

EFL Agree To Streaming Live Matches

The good news: The English Football League has agreed to live digital streaming from the start of the 2017/18 season. The bad news: The service will only be available to overseas subscribers.

The EFL confirmed earlier in the week that every Championship, League One and League Two game, from August and which is not being broadcast via local / territorial TV companies will be available to watch via iFollow in every overseas country.

iFollow platform


Subscription

Overseas iFollow subscribers will pay the equivalent of £110 per season, which will provide coverage of up to 46 live games per club, and every game will be streamed in HD (High Definition) quality.

Currently, 61 of the 72 EFL clubs have signed up to the EFL Digital platform, however the remaining 11 are expected to follow suit well before the season kicks off.

Shaun Harvey


EFL Chief Executive Shaun Harvey said on the official EFL website…

'The launch of iFollow is a notable development and will revolutionise the access thousands of overseas fans enjoy when following their EFL team.

'The new iFollow platform represents a potentially significant new revenue stream for clubs, while enabling enhanced engagement with existing fans now living abroad.

'iFollow will also present the EFL with an important opportunity to stimulate the interest of new groups of supporters who follow our clubs overseas, which in turn will help support the growth of our competitions on the international stage.'
