EFL Reveal Domestic Streaming Information

The EFL have outlined streaming restrictions for the new season.

3 August 2021

The EFL have confirmed fans will not be able to watch games on iFollow on Saturday afternoons in the UK.

In respect of domestic streaming, the EFL will return to the position as was prior to the pandemic when the live broadcast or streaming of any match in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is prohibited between the hours of 2:45pm-5:15pm on Saturday afternoons.

EFL Clubs will have the right to live stream midweek matches on iFollow or Club equivalent service, with Sky Sports also able to stream the same Championship fixtures to subscribers across their Red Button interactive and digital services.

The position for the Championship is as below, so on occasion, some games will be available on iFollow, just not on a Saturday afternoon.

  • All scheduled midweek matches (unless selected as one of Sky Sports Exclusive midweek selections)
  • Displaced weekend matches – matches which are moved from Saturday 3pm kick-offs for non-TV purposes (at the discretion of the Home club)
  • Bank Holiday matches (at the discretion of the Home club)

In the UK, Quest will continue to be the home for all highlights of matches in the Sky Bet EFL, Carabao Cup and Papa John’s Trophy, with action from a full weekend schedule of matches broadcast at 9pm on Saturdays, and midweek League highlights and Carabao Cup midweek highlights also screened on applicable weeknights. Internationally, a number of the EFL’s broadcast partners show repeat transmissions and highlights.
