EFL: iFollow review - a season like no other

What following us on iFollow meant across the leagues

1 June 2021

Here at Carlisle United we've kept you updated every step of the way with our iFollow coverage and following figures as the pandemic kept the majority of last season's fixtures behind-closed-doors in an unusual and unique playing environment.

Our May update [click HERE to read the article in full] highlighted that over £340,000 of vital revenue had been provided by our iFollow streaming service as fans backed the Blues in this new way on a match day.

Chief executive Nigel Clibbens said: "iFollow is a crucial flow of new income and has helped us to mitigate the £1.2m lost income suffered in 20/21.

“The support has been brilliant, even through the second half of the season when results have not been what we would want.

"With two games every week for a prolonged period of time, the cost to fans of watching every game soon starts to mount up.  

“A massive thank you goes to everyone who has backed the team in this way. We are very grateful. It has been vital and it has been a real success."

The EFL have now produced an overview of the positive impact of iFollow across the divisions, with an opportunity for you to sign up to 'Be The First' to find out about the iFollow options which will be available for the 2021/22 campaign.
