FILMING AND LIVE STREAMING UNACCEPTABLE
Bristol Rovers Football Club have been asked to advise supporters about filming/live streaming within the Memorial Stadium is against the copyright rules of the EFL.
Any supporter believed to be streaming live content is infringing the EFL copyright agreement.
With the development of mobile phone technology and ever increasing capabilities of social media sites, supporters are now able to showcase their sides action almost instantly from the terraces.
However, these incidents are causing problems for the games Governing Bodies as they are seen to be in breach of the exclusive rights to broadcast live action from stadiums all around the country.
Everyone at the club would like to urge supporters to not film or take photographs whilst the game is in progress and refrain from publishing video on social media sites.
