Town have been given reassurances by the EFL that fans will be able to watch games if the current season resumes - even if games are behind closed doors. 

The current campaign has now been suspended indefinitely because of the coronavirus crisis, with any return unlikely in the near future. 

Town director, Philip Day, has sought reassurances from the EFL that iFollow would be robust enough to cope with the high demand of supporters looking to watch every game. 

Mr Day clarifies the situation after several queries from concerned supporters.   

Speaking to gtfc.co.uk, Philip said: “The position is that we don’t yet know whether the games will be played behind closed doors. However, there is a strong likelihood that they will if this is the only way to complete the season. 

“It is interesting to note that the 3pm curfew for live games on a Saturday being screened has now been lifted by UEFA. This is a further indication that live TV of behind closed doors games is being considered.

“I asked the EFL if iFollow was robust enough to cover all the games being played and was assured that it was. I also asked if the technology was available to give season ticket holders a free pass to the games - and again I was assured that it was. It has always been our intention to provide this free facility for season ticket holders,” he added.
