EFL CLUBS are reportedly set to debate whether to scrap the 3pm television blackout rule during the summer.

Current rules prevent games from being shown on TV (and iFollow) between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on a Saturday.

However, domestic viewers are able to matches outside these times if they have not been selected for TV coverage live.

Such fixtures are broadcast live on iFollow for a £10 fee, while international viewers can watch all matches live.

It is worth noting that these rules were temporarily eased during the pandemic when matches were played behind closed doors.

The issue is set to be discussed during the EFL’s annual general meeting, which is set to take place in June.

Earlier this season, EFL chairman Rick Parry admitted they will “probably have to be open-minded in terms of scheduling”.

Speaking in October, he said: “I don’t see (an end to the blackout) as being essential. Having said that, I don’t necessarily rule it out.

“We are almost unique in Europe now in having a blackout period. I’m not presuming that it goes.

“But equally, if we’re looking at streaming, at new technologies and new broadcasters, we will probably have to be open-minded in terms of scheduling.

I dont think it will make a jot of difference to attendances for clubs, it will mean more money for the clubs from fans who cant go for whatever reason.
