Pompey’s Checkatrade Trophy match against Northampton will kick-off at an earlier time.

The second round tie will now get underway at 12.30pm on Saturday, December 2.

It will also be streamed exclusively live to UK and international Blues fans on the club’s iFollow service, in what is a first for Pompey.

This decision follows the news earlier this year that EFL clubs will be able to stream Checkatraade Trophy games to a domestic audience as part of new broadcasting arrangements being put in place.

The new deal kicks in from the start of 2019/20, but the Checkatrade Trophy live streaming right has been brought forward to take effect from this season’s competition, starting in the second round.

It will also form part of a wider trial for the EFL and its clubs, as plans are made to deliver live domestic streaming for any non-Saturday 3pm league and live TV games from the start of next season.

The EFL plans to announce further details later this week, including confirmed pricing for supporters.
