EFL attempts to keep Rotherham United supporters in the picture ahead of new season

THE EFL is trying to ensure supporters of Rotherham United and other league clubs don't miss any of the action when the season returns next month.


A new flexible framework worked out with Sky Sports will ensure league matches are either available for broadcast or streaming when access to matches is restricted.


The broadcaster will show 130 live EFL league matches throughout the season and when doors remain shut to fans or have limited access, an arrangement has been put in place whereby all matches that are not live on Sky Sports will be available to stream by clubs on iFollow (or club equivalent service) for a match pass price of £10.


Millers “season tickets” could take on a different form for 2020/21, containing a mixture of streaming and match passes. Details are expected soon.

The Government has said crowds could be let back into stadia in October, initially with limits.
