Overseas fans can watch Pompey matches throughout 2017/18 season
The opening matches of the new campaign will be available worldwide for the first time in through the EFL’s new digital streaming platform iFollow.
Launched for the 2017/18 season, more than a million people have already visited the iFollow club platforms ahead of the new campaign, with the innovative service set to revolutionise the way overseas fans follow their team.
More than 1,500 matches will be available in HD quality this season across the iFollow network for fans who are based outside the UK and Ireland.
Subscribers will pay the equivalent of £110 per season for the service, which will provide coverage of up to 46 live Pompey games.
League matches selected for live TV coverage, including those on Sky Sports and one other Saturday 3pm kick-off that will be broadcast internationally, will not be available to stream on iFollow.
On the opening weekend, international Pompey fans will be able to see Kenny Jackett’s side take on Rochdale in League One.
iFollow and the EFL’s new club websites have been optimised for all devices ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
Fans based in the UK and 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 former PlayerHD platform.
EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said: “We are confident that iFollow will revolutionise the way thousands of EFL supporters overseas gain access to their club, which will not only provide a potentially significant new revenue stream for our clubs, but also help raise the profile of our competitions on the international stage.”
