live stream of port vale games


Recommended Posts

Hope you're all OK out there! Sorry if this topic has already been covered, but if we're still playing behind closed doors for a while, will we be able to watch all our games on live stream somehow? Any advice gratefully received!

vale say people have been giving them a ring to complain about ifollow and giving the staff dogs abuse . If your doing this you need to give your heads a wobble , totally out of vales hands !!

Well if they’re being arsey about fans watching league cup games, maybe when fans are allowed back everyone should boycott the games, see how they like that.

I’ve put this on the match thread too but you can put your code in days before the match. If you put it in as soon as you get it you have time to sort it out with the ticket office if it doesn’t work.

Apparently the EFL have relented and it will be on ifollow for a tenner. Remember that at least 70% of this goes to the club folks. I double checked that this was the case.

What I just hope is that ifollow does not screw up. It has generally been pretty iffy at the start of the season, before ironing out the glitches. And I assume there will also be increased demand. Let us hope it works from the off, so people don't get put off.

I wonder if the EFL would ever consider letting pubs show the games via Ifollow. Having worked in pubs myself I know sky sports and box office were ridiculously expensive to have as they count as entertainment. However if they want to improve the hospitality trade surely this would be beneficial? I can't imagine the pubs in Burslem doing well without the match day rush.

You raise a good point there. The answer is ifollow is a personal thing. In fact it is a bit paranoid. One device. I've been kicked off several times for more than one device, when in fact it had just crashed. And I was only using one device. A license to broadcast would be a very good idea.

SKY have the rights for Championship, league one and league two , so it is SKY who have after consultation with the EFL that have allowed I follow to show the games at the beginning of the season ! 

As SKY is on in most pubs , why would SKY allow another company to show football in Pubs once things are back to normal ?

How long until things are back to fully normal though? Even when fans are allowed back it's only gonna be what 20% or so. Many pubs rely heavily on the Saturday trade. This could go on for a year or two. 

There's also ways round this, Many pubs show games for instant There's a few bars in Leeds that have Leeds TV and show the games. While living in Scotland my local had Rangers tv which showed the home games as sky didn't have rights.

Whether it be Ifollow, sky , BT or even amazon alot of people won't be able to watch the games at home for whatever reason.

I'm talking about while things are not normal. And about Vale.  If a pub in Burslem wants to show Vale.. why not? If the club wants to show Vale with a bit of hospitality, why not? Brings in a bit of revenue. People get to watch the game. Why not?

I should also point out the if you have an ifollow pass, even if you cannot watch the game live, you have full access to the full game later. I am not trying to big up ifollow. Just saying that you get to see the game. And most of the money goes to the club. So if you sign up, you get to see the game. And it helps out the club.

No more, no less. There seems a bit of an opinion on here that it is a bit "shifty". It is not. You pay your money and you get to see the game. And most of the money goes to the club. And under current circs that is the best we as fans can do.

Basically what I am saying (I assume it will be free for season ticket holders, quite rightly) is sign up. Pay your cash, which mostly goes to the club, watch the game. Hopefully we win.

I would absolutely agree with that.

Last season I was trying to big up iFollow a bit for the midweek away games in my match previews. My thoughts at the time was that while it's good for Vale to have an away following a lot of people can't make away games. I can't as I don't get home to Aylesbury till 6-7ish - so there's no chance I can get to  midweek Northern games by then. So my thoughts are - if you can't make it in person, it's better that (if your finances allow) you pay a few pounds to iFollow, watch the game, and Vale get some money that they wouldn't otherwise get. 

As things have changed so none of us can see games right now then if you're not a season ticket holder and can spend a few pounds, then support the club through iFollow.

Is Tommy's still shut ? Perhaps they could do a deal with the Vale to show a game with a small number of vale fans in to watch. Tickets and money spent on drink could go towards both the bar and vale 

Absolutely. Tough times so have to stay safe. But at the end of the day we have to get on with it. With sensible measures in place this should be doable,
