How to catch Blackpool's visit to the Mem LIVE!

29 December 2020

Rovers welcome Blackpool as their first opponents of 2021, catch the Gas kick off the year through an iFollow match pass!

Find out below how you can watch the Gas' fixture against Blackpool, on Saturday 2nd Jan (3pm KO).

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 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 Blackpool 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.

In some cases, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the local BBC team may not be able to provide away iFollow commentary in certain areas, this will limit the commentary options to just the home side.

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. This process has now been streamlined, with Season Ticket holders having all home games automatically added onto their iFollow account, if the same email address was used to set the iFollow account, as we have on our ticketing database. This process will replace the code system used in all home games up to now. Full details on the new process can be found HERE

How do I check that my Season Ticket has been added to my iFollow account?

Season Ticket holders can check whether they have been granted access to all home games by following the process below...

  1. Log in to your iFollow account on the club website
  2. Click your name in the navigation bar top right to get to 'My Account page'
  3. Scroll down to Purchased packages.
  4. Click the + sign next to 'Purchased Packages

Under purchased packages, you should see the package, Bristol Rovers - Season Ticket. 

We recommend Season Ticket holders go through the above process as early as possible, to prevent any issues arising on the day of a fixture. 

Any issues with the addition of a Season Ticket pass to your iFollow account - please email

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.
