Port Vale’s Checkatrade Trophy clash with Shrewsbury Town on December 5th will be available to watch online, the Football League have announced.
The League have decided to live stream all Checkatrade matches from round two onwards.
The match will be broadcast live on the iFollow service – which already streams league matches to fans based overseas.
iFollow also allows domestically-based fans to listen to live radio commentary of matches via an app or logging on to the iFollow area on the official Port Vale website.
Checkatrade round two ties are being made available at a set price of £5, while any existing annual or monthly iFollow subscribers will be given access for free.
This development has been made possible due to the recently announced domestic broadcast agreement with Sky, whereby EFL clubs have been granted the rights to stream Checkatrade Trophy games to a domestic audience from the start of the 2019/20 season. That opportunity has now been brought forward to take effect from this season’s competition.
