EFL make huge deal with Sky Sports to allow clubs in ALL three divisions to stream every match of the 2020-21 season live on their websites

EFL have made ground-breaking deal with Sky Sports to allow streaming games
Clubs in all three divisions will be able to stream every match on their websites
Season-ticket holders can watch for free whilst casual fans will pay £10 fee

The EFL have reached a ground-breaking deal with Sky Sports that will enable clubs in all three divisions to stream every match next season live on their websites.

Season-ticket holders will get access to their side's home matches free of charge and more casual fans will be able to watch every game — including Saturday 3pm kick-offs for the first time — for a fee of around £10.

The clubs hope the money raised will help offset the loss of gate receipts while supporters are shut out of stadiums.

Sky Sports pay £119 million a year for exclusive live rights for EFL games and the Carabao Cup but are sympathetic to the plight of clubs who will be denied a considerable proportion of their usual ticket revenue for the foreseeable future.

As a result, the broadcaster will permit clubs to stream all games that were scheduled for live TV coverage without demanding any compensation as long as the majority of fans are excluded from grounds.

The arrangement will be reviewed on a regular basis but is expected to remain in place until the Government permits a 50 per cent occupancy rate at stadiums.

This is likely to be some way off given the initial plan is for a maximum capacity of between 20 and 30 per cent when fans return. This is scheduled for October at the earliest.

The innovative agreement will also involve Saturday 3pm kick-offs being regularly broadcast live after UEFA lifted the blackout during Project Restart.

The EFL's determination to make every match available for fans contrasts with the approach by Premier League clubs who, as Sportsmail revealed this week, rejected the opportunity to stream their own matches.

The money raised by the streaming fees will be kept by whichever club sells the service in the Championship.

A more complex revenue-sharing formula will be applied in League One and League Two due to the big disparity in clubs' respective fanbases.

All well and good, but will we still be able to get Tower FMs top class award winning commentary on Radio Nuts?

Hopefully if Karly is up for doing all the hard work for us again!

Reading between the lines on these tweets from the bloke who has done the commentary for the last few seasons it seems that Tower are doing it again?

I guess we'll find out soon enough.

I've got a mate in Finland who came on here not long ago, but ran away in terror when he saw some of the threads. Mind you, he's a Wigan supporter, so who cares.

Don't see why not.

Karly and BTID tend to operate it and I assume they will both will be doing so when they are about this season - hope so anyway.

Fook me, if we have to rely on KP for another season we are well and truly fooked.

Last season it was either "Sorry I forgot to do it" or "I'm currently in the bog roll aisle in Morrisons".

Amateur.

I really think we should all write in and nominate you and Cedric to co-host the show live from your penthouse suite having substituted the audio for your own match commentary. Even cries of pain and the gentle squeak of knots tightening is better than shite those tossers persecute us with.

Bolton and Bradford City fans wait for EFL to confirm stream options for cup

Wanderers say they will hear in the 'next couple of days' if their opening competitive game of the season will be available to stream for fans.

The Carabao Cup first round match against Bradford City will be played behind closed doors on Saturday, September 5, but staff at the UniBol were expecting to broadcast the match in its entirety.

A statement from Bradford released this morning, however, claims there will be no option for fans to see the game live on the internet.

“The game will be the Bantams' opening match of the 2020/21 season and first competitive outing in over six months,” it read.

“No streaming option will be available for the affair whatsoever.”

Wanderers tweeted from their official account a few minutes later that they would bring an update to supporters as quickly as possible.

The game will mark the end of a 179-day wait for the Whites, whose last official outing was in League One against Burton Albion on March 10, before lockdown.

Ian Evatt’s side have impressed in pre-season, winning all four of their games and scoring 19 goals in the process, and the chance to watch the Carabao Cup tie had been eagerly anticipated on both sides of the Pennines.

Wanderers met with other clubs and the EFL last week to discuss their options on factoring in iFollow with home season tickets, and whether away games could potentially be streamed.

Reports suggest the league has struck a deal with Sky Sports to broadcast games via the iFollow platform until clubs are allowed to fill 50 per cent of stadia with supporters.

The league said they would finalise a decision early this week – but it is unclear whether the Carabao Cup is part of the overall agreement with Sky.

Bolton Wanderers fans CAN watch Bradford City cup clash online

Wanderers fans WILL be able to watch Ian Evatt’s first game in charge after an agreement was struck with the EFL and Sky Sports to screen all Carabao Cup first round games not selected for live broadcast.

Bradford City had reported yesterday on their official site that there would be no streaming “whatsoever” – sparking concern on this side of the Pennines that supporters would miss out on what would be their first look at the new-look Whites.

But this morning it has been confirmed that online passes will be sold for £10 to allow access to the game via the iFollow platform.

The Carabao Cup game will NOT be part of the season ticket package, so separate payment will be required.

Supporters outside the UK will also be able to buy a pass.
