FAQs For Overseas Fans

Ahead of the 2017/18 season, Wanderers PlayerHD was replaced by iFollow, a digital live streaming and content platform that will revolutionise the way football fans overseas can follow their EFL teams.

As part of your club's new website iFollow will, for the first time in English football, allow overseas fans to live stream up to 46 live games featuring their club within the regular EFL season. In addition, fans will have access to extended highlights and exclusive behind the scenes videos in HD, across desktop, mobile, tablet and app.

Please see below details on why some games may not be available to watch live on the platform.

Season passes are priced at the equivalent of £110.

Australia - AUD$185
