Find out all the details on how to watch the opening round of the Gas' 2020/21 FA Cup journey...

Rovers travel to Walsall on Saturday, 7th November (KO 3pm) in the FA Cup 1st Round.

Under government guidelines, the 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 any other 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 Walsall game. We also recommend checking out 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. Users can select between both home and away commentary on the setting wheel that appears when viewing live video.

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

Season-Ticket holders are entitled to free iFollow match passes for all home league games. As Saturday's encounter is an away cup match, 2020/21 Season Ticket holders will have to purchase a match pass to watch the 1st round tie.

Can I watch this game from anywhere?

Due to FA Cup broadcasting regulations, only UK based users will be able to catch this weekend's fixture. 

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 is necessary for the process of applying free passes to accounts of season-ticket holders when needed.

Match pass purchases must take place on a web browser, but games can be viewed on a mobile or tablet device. The EFL have supplied a PDF guide on purchasing match passes that's available to view HERE.
