iFollow – How To Watch Your Team During The 2021/22 season.
Welcome To iFollow
iFollow is the official streaming service for EFL fans. With live video streaming of matches, audio commentary, behind the scenes content, newsletters, match highlights and much more, there is no better way to get closer to your club.
Live Streaming of Matches
The EFL has returned to the position it held prior to the pandemic when the live broadcast or streaming of any match in the UK (including Isle of Man, Channel Islands and the Republic of Ireland) was prohibited between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on Saturday afternoons (Article 48).
For the 2021/22 season, EFL Clubs* have the right to stream midweek matches on iFollow or a Club-equivalent service, with Sky Sports also able to stream the same Sky Bet Championship fixtures to subscribers across their Red Button interactive and digital services.
Fixtures that have been moved from their scheduled Saturday 3pm kick off for non-TV purposes are known as displaced matches and can be streamed domestically and internationally at the discretion of the Home club.
Matches that fall on an international weekend will be streamed domestically and internationally in Sky Bet League Two, but only internationally in League One, as agreed by Clubs.
Live domestic and international streaming of Carabao Cup ties will not be permitted due to the existing broadcast arrangements.
Papa John’s Trophy
With the exception of the Semi-Finals and Final which will be live on Sky Sports, all Papa John’s Trophy fixtures are permitted to be live streamed domestically and internationally.

*Please note that the iFollow service is only available to clubs playing in the EFL during the 2021/22 season who have opted in to utilise the iFollow platform. Those Clubs who have not will have access to the same live streaming opportunity and will be able to provide their fans with access through their own club digital services.
We are therefore unable to provide subscriptions to fans of AFC Bournemouth, Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers, Blackpool, Bristol City, Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic, Derby County, Forest Green Rovers, Fulham, Harrogate Town, Leyton Orient, Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest, Plymouth Argyle, QPR, Reading, Salford City, Sheffield United, Stoke City, Sunderland, Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion and Wigan Athletic. Please contact your club for more information.
