Watch Mansfield Match On iFollow

Round Two Tie To Be Broadcast On Streaming Platform

3 December 2017

Blackpool's Round Two Checkatrade Trophy clash against Mansfield Town on Wednesday will be available to watch in the UK and overseas on iFollow.

Supporters living domestically and internationally can purchase a match pass for just £5 to watch a multi-angle broadcast of the fixture, which kicks-off at 7pm. Any existing annual or monthly iFollow subscribers will be given access for free. 

All ties up until the conclusion of the Quarter-Finals are now scheduled to be streamed online. The Semi-Finals and Final will then be screened live on Sky Sports.

This development has been made possible due to the recently announced domestic broadcast agreement with Sky, whereby EFL Clubs have been granted the rights to stream Checkatrade Trophy games to a domestic audience from the start of the 2019/20 season. That opportunity has now been brought forward to take effect from this season’s competition.

In addition, Round Two matches of the Checkatrade Trophy will be used as the start of a trial to consider enhancements to the iFollow offer, as the EFL starts planning to increase the quality of coverage and production values ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey said: “The ability to live stream EFL matches is an exciting new innovation that is already having a major impact for overseas fans of EFL Clubs since we launched iFollow ahead of the 2017/18 season.

“This opportunity is being extended to UK-based fans from next season, as we develop plans to deliver live domestic streaming for any non-Saturday 3pm league and live TV games."
