The EFL have confirmed that Town were League One's most-watched club on iFollow during 2020/21.

In email to subscribers, the EFL listed the Blues as the most-watched team in League One followed by Portsmouth and Plymouth.

Match passes cost £10 but with £2 of that figure covering admin costs for the EFL. Clubs agreed how the revenue was split based where possible around the previous season’s away attendance. If the clubs were unable to agree terms the EFL arbitrated.

The EFL say 360,000 fans, including 160,000 season ticket holders, watched their team on iFollow during 2020/21 with 1,659 games streamed, equating to 805 million minutes of live football.

Wonder if there's any particular reason why Sunderland weren't the biggest subscribers?

That is highly unlikely for UK residents. Nearly all the League 1 clubs (not Argyle) have voted against it.

Does anyone want to try and see if this can be bypassed by a good vpn?


I Do hope the club use pre season games to test the new website thats coming very soon and the streaming service so they can detect any bugs or faults before the season starts.

With the website being a new server and a new overhaul they shouldnt trust that its going to work because they are uploading in the same way

Regarding using a VPN..? You probably won't be able to get an answer on that until the new system which comprises of two main elements is in place? I do know one thing... Argyle will really be on the case to make sure you can't use one.

Recent 'Plymouth Live' article on the subject copied here:


Plymouth Argyle are quitting iFollow and the EFL’s digital platform to produce their own packages for fans.

The League One club have appointed Other Media to develop ‘a cutting edge website’ and Argyle app for iOS and Android users.

Meanwhile, StreamAMG will lead on the club’s new streaming service.

Fans have relied on iFollow this season to watch Argyle in action while their games have been played behind closed doors during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Streaming promises to be an important source of income for clubs in the future, even after Covid-19.

So the move made by Argyle to leave iFollow is a significant one by them.

The combined website, app and streaming service is scheduled to be up and running by the start of next season.

Work on this project has been ongoing for a number of months behind the scenes at Home Park.

Reliability, ease of use, and quality of experience were all driving forces behind the decision to invest in a new digital offering for the Green Army.

Argyle head of marketing and communications Jamie Yablsey said: “This is a really exciting development for the club.

“This project allows us to produce our own digital solution, controlled by us, designed specifically for Argyle supporters.

“Not only will these new platforms offer a better, more reliable experience for Argyle fans, but they also provide us greater opportunities to enhance and amplify the Argyle brand – in line with the club’s long-term ambition to become a sustainable Championship level club.

“To do that, we need to grow our fanbase, engaging effectively with our current supporters, as well as inspiring those who are lapsed, or not yet interested in Argyle.

“The club is in an exciting place - we have a strong story to tell, the right people involved, and we now have the tools to press forward.”

More information and previews of the website, app and streaming service will be revealed as the project unfolds.

The new digital services will kick-start a long-term supporter services project at the club.

There are plans for a ‘single sign-on’ system, bringing areas like ticketing, retail, streaming and hospitality together in one easily accessible account.

George Crabb, managing director of Other Media, whose partner clubs include West Ham United, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Plymouth Argyle, an historic club that understands the value of putting the fan’s digital experience at the centre of the club’s development plans.

“Argyle join our growing network of clubs delivering customised digital products, powered by our Clubcast Fan Experience Platform, who are seeing the benefits of developing a strong digital strategy that places the fan experience at the heart of new engagement and commercial opportunities.

“Building stronger ties between the club and the fans is vital as we emerge from the Covid crisis.

“We’re looking forward to launching a range of new digital products in the next few months.”

Don't know what to think about streaming and it's impact of the game as we know it? Home park with ten thousand fans can be quite lively at time but for the majority is at about ten percent of the atmosphere of a full house. If you're able to watch it from the comfort of your own home for a tenner versus £24 plus for travelling how many fans will do that? We saw and heard during the pandemic how terrible the atmosphere was.
I've used Ifollow myself and thought its quality was shite and it's customer service was non existent so Argyle can't do any worse, definitely need some better cameras though.

It alright to watch the home game via Argyle TV but the away match coverage I think would be provided by the host system which would be the ifollow used by most of league one. The only upside there would not be any Radio Devon involvement

Could the away club not get the Exeter commentary piped in?
