While matches are played behind closed doors, or with limited capacity, the EFL have confirmed that all matches that are NOT LIVE on Sky Sports will be streamed via iFollow for supporters to purchase at a match pass price of £10.
However, 2020/21 Northampton Town season ticket holders will, under the newly agreed framework, be provided access to all of the Cobblers HOME LEAGUE GAMES.
The match by match streaming and season ticket offer is a TEMPORARY measure that has only been put in place whilst clubs operate at a zero or reduced capacity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and will be subject to regular review by the EFL with the first review set for early October.
EFL Chief Executive David Baldwin said: “There is no argument that attending live matches is what the League, its clubs and fans want to see and, clearly, the overriding objective is to get supporters back into stadiums as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, this framework allows our clubs to reward their most loyal supporters by providing what we hope is only short-term access to watch their matches.
“It’s important that whilst the doors remain fully, or partly shut, we ensure there is the ability for fans of all EFL clubs to be able to gain access and watch their team and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sky Sports for their support in this matter. Collectively, it’s not our preferred situation but given the circumstances COVID has presented us it gives us a temporary option whilst we finalise our plans for fans returning.”
In addition, round one Carabao Cup matches, including the Cobblers clash with Cardiff City, will be shown live on iFollow on a match pass basis at a cost of £10 for all supporters.
