All Sky Bet EFL games are available on TV or online

While the doors remain closed to fans or only limited viewers are allowed through the turnstiles, there is an agreement that all games not live on Sky Sports can be streamed by clubs on iFollow (or an equivalent club service) for a match pass price of £ 10.

In addition, holders of season tickets get access to all home games according to the newly agreed framework, provided this has been agreed by the club where the supporter has a season ticket. In the championship, access to away games during the week is also offered as part of the season ticket package if the clubs offer it.

Match-by-match streaming and season tickets are a temporary measure that has only been introduced if, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the clubs are operated with a capacity of zero or less and are subject to regular reviews.

David Baldwin, Chief Executive Officer of EFL said: “There is no argument that the league, its clubs and fans want to see the live matches. The overall goal is clearly to get fans back to the stadiums as soon as possible this is certainly possible. ” In the meantime, this framework allows our clubs, if they so choose, to reward their most loyal supporters by hopefully only giving short term access to their games.

“It is important that the doors remain fully or partially closed, but we ensure that fans of all EFL clubs can access and watch their team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sky Sports for their support.” Support in this matter. Overall, this is not our preferred situation, but given the circumstances Covid has presented us with, it gives us a temporary option as we finalize our plans for fans to return. “
