Commenting on the club’s upcoming live stream, Marketing Officer Mark Donnelly said: “As soon as it became clear that we may not be able to welcome supporters to our games for the start of the season, we began investigating ways to ensure supporters could stay connected to the club – and streaming was a key part of that.
“We’ve spent a considerable amount of time and resource on making sure that the service will be up and running for the start of the season and we’re delighted to have this in place for the game against Lewes.
“Every second and penny spent on this is well worth it in order to keep our wonderful fan base – who have been so loyal over the past six years – up to date with how their team are performing.
“We have completed a number of tests over pre-season and in the week leading up to the game, but we know there may be some minor hitches on the day – and we’ll ensure we are ready to act quickly if anything should occur.
“I’d also like to thank the Football Association for their support on this matter, and StreamAMG for helping facilitate the game being broadcast on FA Player simultaneously.”
