Take a look at our comprehensive guide to the all-new iFollow Bluebirds service and how it can benefit you this season!
With matches beginning behind closed doors this season we know that providing you with the best coverage of Barrow’s return to the Football League is crucial.
We’re delighted to have recently launched our brand new EFL Digital Official Website and we’re now happy to confirm that Season Ticket holders will be able to watch our behind closed doors home league games online for FREE!
With the iFollow Bluebirds service select games throughout the campaign will be available to stream, complete with audio commentary and replays – making sure that you can enjoy every second of 2020/21.
We will communicate further in the coming days regarding how Season Ticket holders can claim their free match passes but, for now, we wanted to give fans a broader understanding of iFollow is going to take you to the heart of the action in the new campaign.
What is iFollow Bluebirds?
iFollow Bluebirds is the Club’s in-house channel bringing you video interview with the management and players around each game, as well as providing exclusive video content from behind-the-scenes.
It’s also the place you can follow every single game live online – through the Match Centre on game days with up-to-the-minute stats and text commentary, as well live audio passes and video streams.
We've teamed up with BBC Radio Cumbria for 2020/21 and iFollow Bluebirds will be the only place to access live commentary online anywhere in the world.
How Do You Access iFollow Bluebirds?
You can find the channel on the Official Website by clicking here now.
You need to be a registered user to enjoy much of the content – if you’re already a member then simply sign-in. If not, then sign-up for a FREE account and please use the same email address as you’ve used when buying Season Tickets.
A free account will give you access to the Club’s weekly newsletter as well as to a variety of free-to-view videos with David Dunn and his players.
Once you have that account you can then move on to buy Match Passes. You can buy Audio Match Passes with live commentary, or you can buy Video Match Passes* with live video plus audio commentary so you can watch The Bluebirds’ games as they happen live!
*For selected games
How Much Is iFollow Bluebirds?
Opening an account is free. And you can buy single Audio Match Passes for £2.50 or single Video Match Passes for £10. Not all games are available to stream but you can check which ones will be by clicking here.
What If I Am A Barrow Season Ticket Holder?
If you have bought a Season Ticket for 2020/21 then you will be able to live stream our Sky Bet League Two home games that are played behind closed doors for free.
Season Ticket holders will be issued with an individual voucher code that will be sent to your registered email address in advance of the game. Once the code has been received, you can go to the relevant game and click on Buy Match Pass but, instead of paying, simply insert the code from your email.
Each Season Ticket holder will receive one code and this can only be redeemed once – so do not pass on your code or share it with others as that will mean you will not be able to access the game.
Season Ticket holders will still have to buy a Match Pass for any cup games.
How Do I Watch Streamed Games?
You can watch the games on your PC, tablet or mobile phone. Visit the Official Website on matchday, visit the Match Centre and if you have an eligible Match Pass you will be able to log-in and watch the game.
There is also a brand new EFL iFollow App available for all devices so download that from your relevant store to make accessing content even more straightforward – more details below.
Can I Watch Games On My TV?
To watch the live stream on your TV you will need to connect your computer with a HDMI cable.
What Do I Need To Enjoy The Game?
In order to enjoy the live streaming service you will need:
- An internet-connected device (a PC, tablet or phone)
- A good consistent Wi-Fi connection
- An up-to-date operating system and compatible browser. To check this, register for an account and watch any video on iFollow Bluebirds. If you can view the video then you’ll be able to watch a live stream.
What If I Use The iFollow App?
The new EFL iFollow App is available now from the App Stores and you download and simply select ‘Barrow’ as you’re preferred team – and then you’re good to go!
