Although it is disappointing we aren’t able to have our fans at Edgeley Park watching the action pitch side, we are able to offer our fans the next best thing, Live Streaming!
Since March we’ve all jumped on the virtual bandwagon, whether its family quizzes, facetiming friends or business zoom meetings and there’s no exception for getting our football fix.
We successfully launched County Live Stream for our first home match against Halifax where County won 2-1, over 8000 fans were watching including 2400 of our dedicated season ticket holders.
For fans, the stream is restoring some sort of normality into their lives whilst being as close to the action as possible. We spoke to some of our fans on how they feel about County Live Stream;
Andrew Findlay writes… ” High quality streaming unrivalled outside the big broadcasters with informative and knowledgeable commentary plus pre and post-match interviews with the manager – County have filled the void left by not being able to attend live games as best they can..”
Billy Byrne writes…”From the pre-season games that were streamed live it is clear that County have learned how to stream – the league games shown so far have been different quality than the streaming we’re seen from other clubs. Well done County.”
Steve Cree writes…”The live streaming of games from Edgeley Park is thoroughly professional and inline with all we are seeing from the club these days. I congratulate the club on providing fans with the best solution possible to enable us to still be able to watch our beloved County during these unprecedented times.”
Samuel Fuller writes…”Really clear picture with quality commentary from Jon. I cannot wait to get back into Edgeley Park but the professional live streaming County are providing is really helping provide my County fix.”
Stewart Blacow writes… “A massive well done to County on the live streaming they are now offering from EP while we cant go to games – a great effort and very well executed. The kids and myself love it“
As well as all the positives for fans, there are also countless benefits for businesses, sponsoring County you’re alongside big-name brands such as Project Solar and Vitality, as well as lots of local businesses.
There are a number of ways to feature in our live stream and gain brand exposure to thousands of fans, including becoming a streaming sponsor. This would be a season long commitment with pre, during and post-match exposure on all live streamed games, along with commentary mentions.
We also offer Virtual Match Sponsorship, this means businesses can chose which match they would like to feature on, as well as chose man of the match.
