Commentary of the match will feature play-by-play commentator Chris Wittyngham and commentators Ray Hudson and Kaylyn Kyle.
Matches streamed on the app feature a series of functions to enhance its matchday live-streaming experience powered in partnership with pioneering video technology firm StreamLayer, together with Club data partner, Pumpjack Dataworks.
Among the features available in both portrait and landscape (or “full-screen”) video modes are the following:
• Watch Party: Industry-first “watch party” capability that enables fans to conduct a group video conversation with up to eight friends - while simultaneously viewing live match coverage. In full-screen mode, participants’ thumbnail images “float” atop the game action, allowing fans to reposition them on-screen and in-stream - for maximum game enjoyment.
• Live Chat: Full-featured private messaging within the live viewing experience, ensuring that fans don’t miss a second of fútbol while chatting with their friends.
• Real-Time Stats: Fans have access to live, in-game stats, all without ever having to leave the live action on the pitch.
• Social Engagement: Acknowledging that many fans enjoy sharing and keeping up with social media chatter throughout matches, the social engagement feature offers a non-disruptive way to stay on top of the conversation without missing a goal.
Fans outside the 100mile radius will be able to listen to live radio commentary of the match featuring color commentator Fernando Fiore and play-by-play commentators Chris Wittyngham and Thomas Rongen. The new streaming features will be available to all fans regardless of location.
