Overseas EFL fans wanting to watch their club in action via iFollow can now purchase match passes, in addition to season-long subscriptions.
A match pass, costing the equivalent of just £5, will allow overseas fans to choose specific Sky Bet EFL matches to watch during the regular league season and offers fans greater choice in how they follow their side.
The new subscription offer is available ahead of the opening day of the season, which sees Nottingham Forest host Millwall live on iFollow on Friday 4th August in the first ever Sky Bet EFL fixture to be broadcast online to overseas fans. A further 30 fixtures will be available to fans over Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August.
Additionally, the EFL has launched new official apps for 55 clubs* which are available for free from the App Store and Google Play Store. Fans must download the official app for their respective club in order to live stream any match via iFollow when using an iOS or Android device.
iFollow will, for the first time in English football, enable EFL fans based outside the UK and Republic of Ireland to watch their team during the regular EFL season.
With an estimated 270,000 EFL fans based outside the UK, iFollow will allow clubs to enable their supporters to follow the action wherever they are in the world. More than 1,500 matches will be available in HD quality, with iFollow showing every EFL match live unless that match has been selected by the EFL’s overseas broadcast partners.
Fans based in the UK and Republic of 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 previous PlayerHD platform.
*New apps have been built for 55 of the 58 clubs within the EFL Digital agreement. The three remaining clubs (Brentford, Cardiff City, and Nottingham Forest) have produced their own apps in conjunction with the iFollow service.
The following clubs are not currently part of the EFL Digital agreement and therefore have not launched affiliated EFL Digital apps: Accrington Stanley, Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Bristol City, Charlton Athletic, Derby County, Fulham, Hull City, Forest Green Rovers, Leeds United, Middlesbrough, Queens Park Rangers, Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
