Browse the Championship TV schedule below for games from the Football League shown on US television and streaming. For the 2017/18 season, everything has changed.
ESPN has reached an agreement with BAMTech, the rights holder to the Championship and EFL Cup, to carry an average of 3-4 Championship games on ESPN3 every weekend.
For the first time ever, the English Football League (EFL) has decided to launch a paid-subscription service for every Championship, League One and League Two club that’s interested in participating. By doing so, it’ll allow supporters of these clubs outside the United Kingdom and Ireland to be able to subscribe to live and on-demand streams of their favorite club’s leagues matches. The groundbreaking change means that you’ll be able to stream all of your club’s Football League games for the first time ever.
Unfortunately there are some clubs who are decided to not offer the iFollow streaming services to their supporters. Those clubs are Accrington Stanley, Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Bristol City, Charlton Athletic, Derby County, Fulham, Hull City, Forest Green Rovers, Leeds United, Middlesbrough, QPR, Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
There are so many questions about iFollow that we’ve created an iFollow FAQ that will answer all of your questions in detail.
For soccer fans in the United States, the two most important things to know about watching your favorite Championship club this season are that (1) the league games that are shown by the US rights holder to the Championship will not be on iFollow, and (2) your subscription to iFollow will include home and away league games (as long as your club is using iFollow; see links below).
The FA Cup rights are currently under FOX Sports.
