Opening day clash against Birmingham the first of many Blues games available to watch for overseas fans
The opening matches of the Sky Bet EFL season, including Town’s home game against Birmingham on August 5, will be available to watch live to supporters outside the UK and Ireland for the first time in English football through the EFL’s new digital streaming platform iFollow.
Launched for the 2017/18 season, more than a million people have already visited the iFollow club platforms ahead of the new campaign, with the innovative service set to revolutionise the way overseas EFL fans follow their team.
More than 1,500 matches will be available in HD quality this season across the iFollow network or comparative club service*. Subscribers will pay the equivalent of £110 per season for the service which will provide coverage of up to 46 live games per club.
League matches selected for live TV coverage, including those on Sky Sports and one other Saturday 3pm kick-off that will be broadcast internationally, will NOT be available to stream on iFollow.
iFollow and the EFL’s new club websites have been optimised for all devices ahead of the 2017/18 campaign. Fans based in the UK and Ireland will still also have access to live audio commentary, highlights packages and exclusive content as part of the new offering, rebranded to replace the EFL’s former PlayerHD platform.
