Have any NL clubs been posting their viewing figures for paid live streams. Our official site posted that there were over 8,000 (including season ticket holders) for a our first home game (v Halifax) but since then I've seen nowt. The strange thing is that some reasonably well supported 3rd and 4th tier league teams have posted figures well below that (For example none of Carlisle's first 5 games topped a thousand). Our stream was dirt cheap at 7.50 a throw and there was a lot of enthusiasm because of the investment going into the club but even so the 8,000 seems well out of kilter with most league clubs.

Think we averaged out at a couple of thousand. The last home game had 4100 fans in the ground and 1165 steaming. Our stream was a minimum of £12, or you could pay £16 or £20 if you wanted to support the club a bit more financially. So at around £25k per home game it kept things ticking over, at least

Did your figures include season ticket holders? With ifollow season ticket holders watched home games for free and weren't included in most reported figures

Our (King's Lynn) figures were pretty poor, I think we started somewhere in the 500s (not including season ticket holders) but by the end it was just over the hundred. Whilst this season hasn't been easy for anyone, furloughing the majority of the squad certainly didn't help viewing figures on top of having the highest streaming charge in the division and I would imagine the only time we really got 'good' numbers was when we had a good take up from away fans.

Think I remember we posted about selling just over 42k match passes over 46 games (not including season tickets). So just over 900 a game and I think we had around 1600 season ticket holders last season. For the away team to get income from ifollow, also meant having to sell more than 500 away passes I believe.

These were our figures with about 9 games to go

We've been around 2k as well, as low as about 1400 and as high as 3k I think. Not seen exact numbers but bits coming out of the club.

We had 1600 streaming on Saturday, but most weeks it was between 600 and 800. Our fans are pretty shit. I'm probably the pick of the bunch. :ds:

8000 seems way too high, surely? You haven't been averaging anywhere near that for a long time, I'd imagine? Plus there will be households of multiple Stockport fans that would ordinarily buy tickets as individuals that watched the match on one stream. Seems wrong that figure, to me.

From our official website:
"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."

Yeah, but again...those numbers sound crazily high though? When was the last time you had 8000 at Edgeley Park? And again, there'll also be several families, couples and housemates all watching on single logins. Do you not agree that that it sounds mental that you got 8000?

3oo of those watching were probably the furloughed players.

3oooo, sounds like the camp version of 300, staring Alan Carr as Leonidas

Considering Bolton reckoned they had the fifth highest amount of subscribers in the whole EFL on around 6,000, it's very unlikely 8,000 people could be arsed streaming a non-league match.

Presumably it's a figure dreamt up by the club's marketing. Like when a newspaper claims its readership figure is fucking massive - they estimate that something like 2.3 people per household read each newspaper sold. Which is bollocks.

That quote reads to me like some kind of contrived estimate of how many people they think were watching each stream on average rather than the number sold. Or they’d have said ‘more than 8,000 sold’.
