How fans can help Port Vale when they stream live games



Port Vale will have to do without their supporters when the league season kicks off in September, but clubs have reached an agreement to stream games live until crowds are allowed back.

Live streams for home league games will be available for season-ticket holders at no extra charge while other fans will be able to buy a match pass for £10.

That means watching games through the EFL’s iFollow service.

The club is expecting plenty of demand and is asking fans who buy a match pass to do so through the Vale’s own website, even when the team are away from home.

League Two clubs have agreed a deal where money from the first 500 match passes bought by followers of the away team will go to the home club. But money from match passes sold to away followers after that first 500 will go to the away club.

So, Vale are urging fans to buy their passes through their own website so they count towards Port Vale’s profits.

Vale kick off their league season at home to Crawley on September 12 and then are away to Exeter City on September 19.

They are hoping supporters can return in restricted numbers in October, subject to government guidance.

Meanwhile, Vale have made clear that season-ticket holders will get priority when fans can return.

The club is expecting a busy spell before the early-bird deadline on August 31. The Port Vale ticket office will be open tomorrow (Friday), 9am to 5pm, on Saturday, 9am to 2pm, on Sunday, 10am to 4pm, and on Bank Holiday Monday, 10am to 4pm.
