EFL Clubs are encouraging supporters to stay away and tune in to all remaining 2019/20 matches from home with fans being given unprecedented access to Live games on Sky Sports and online.
The EFL have a proud history of developing innovative new ways to attract supporters through the turnstiles, but the message has been reversed in line with football’s return on a behind closed doors basis with the safety of fans, club personnel and the frontline services the principle priority.
Supporters are now being asked to maintain social distancing guidelines and avoid congregating outside stadiums as part of a new campaign message: ‘When we play, please stay away’ ahead of EFL matches returning for the first time since March on a behind closed doors basis.
All EFL matches are available to view from home, with matches being made available through coverage on Sky Sports or iFollow (or Club equivalent) streaming services.
On Thursday 19 June, Sky Sports will televise the first leg of the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Semi-Finals, before hosting live coverage of three Sky Bet Championship fixtures over the opening weekend of the restart, with Fulham v Brentford kicking off the action at 12.30pm on Saturday 21 June.
The live League fixtures broadcast on Sky Sports will also be streamed on a Club’s iFollow (Valley Pass for Charlton) service, with access provided for Season Ticket Holders.
This access will be determined by the Club where the supporter holds a Season Ticket and may be in lieu of a refund or part of a wider package as determined by each individual Club. Where applicable, clubs will send out promo codes prior to this weekends’ fixtures.
Non-season ticket holding supporters will also be able to purchase access to games not shown on Sky Sports for the current match price pass of £10.
