Rovers head to Sunderland on Saturday, 12th September (KO 3pm) to begin thier Sky Bet League One fixtures.

Under government guidelines, Saturday’s game will take place behind closed doors, with only essential personnel allowed inside the stadium. We must stress that supporters should not congregate around the ground for this game, or another game until government guidelines change.

Can I still watch the game?

Yes! The fixture is available to stream for UK-based fans with a £10 iFollow match pass. Head here to get your pass! Scroll down to “Match Passes’ and ‘Subscribe Now’ for the Sunderland game. We recommend also the dedicated ‘Live Match Centre’ – which will house the link to watch or listen to Saturday’s game.

What can we expect from our iFollow experience?

iFollow streams will consist of single-camera coverage and commentary from the team at BBC Radio Bristol.

I am a season-ticket holder, will I be sent a code?

Not for this game. Season-Ticket holders are entitled to free iFollow match passes for all home league games.

Information on how you will receive this code will be published prior to our first home league fixture, which is against Ipswich Town on the 19th of September.

We would like to stress that Season Ticket holders have an up-to-date email address linked to their ticketing account, so we can facilitate the delivery of redeemable codes to their email inbox when the time comes.

Can I watch this game from anywhere?

Yes! Sky Bet League One fixtures (which aren’t selected for live Sky TV coverage) are available to watch for overseas subscribers. Fans wishing to view this game from overseas can do so by purchasing season passes, or by purchasing an overseas match pass.

I can’t watch the game live on iFollow, will there be highlights?

Yes. After the game, there will be a short highlight package made available on our Youtube channel. Extended highlights will also be uploaded to the iFollow section of the website for subscribers to view.

Do I need an iFollow account to buy the game?

You will need to have an iFollow account to purchase your match pass, to do so, Register here.

It’s also worth noting that having your iFollow account under the same email as your ticketing account would be recommended, to simplify the process for sending out the free passes to season-ticket holders when needed.
