Fans Can Watch Every Game Online

EFL club supporters, including those of the Mariners, will be able to watch all of their team's games online as long as there are restrictions on the number of fans entering stadia. This will apply to all games not televised on Sky Sports, which will only be available to subscribers.

Season ticket holders will not have to pay the £10 fee for home games they are unable to attend, although they will have to pay for the away matches.

Realistically Sky are unlikely to select many Grimsby games to show live at the early part of the season at least, so supporters will be able to pay to watch the games or get a season ticket. If and when Blundell Park does reopen it is likely to have a massively reduced capacity around 2000 or less.

Sky show EFL Cup and EFL league games so the arrangement covers both competitions. The broadcaster will show 130 live EFL league matches throughout season 2020/21, roughly 3 a week, but they are likely to be mainly from the Championship and some of the higher-profile League One sides - including newly relegated Hull City.

Town's season begins on September 12th at Walsall. The first televised game is the evening before when Watford play Middlesbrough in the Championship.

The EFL have said this arrangement is only temporary until the country returns to normal and capacities revert to what they were. Although, like home working, it's quite possible that pandemic may accelerate changes that have opened up as technology has improved, that otherwise might have taken much longer to come about.
