This season, we’re looking to offer supporters improved coverage of Southport games with our new Matchday Live service on the club’s official website.
For the past six years, we have provided live text updates from the majority of the Sandgrounders’ matches.
This campaign, we’re looking to develop the service available to supporters who aren’t at our games. The text commentary will continue and, as the season progresses, it is our aim to introduce audio commentary from a selection of away matches as an alternative way of following the action.
To access Matchday Live, users will have to be registered with SFC Online. Registration is free and gives users full access to our full range of highlights, Matchday Live coverage, interviews and exclusive articles until the end of the season. You can register for SFC Online HERE.
New features will be introduced to the coverage during the matches.
Among the key features we’re looking to promote is greater interaction with fans on a matchday, as well as offering a more complete picture of the match. Audio snippets during the game and its build up will be posted to the Matchday Live feed through the day.
For our opening game at Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday, Matchday Live will open at 9am on Saturday. We’ll bring you all the build-up to the match, there will be opportunities to have your say ahead of the first game and let us know what you think about the season ahead.
We’ll be previewing the match with news and press articles from both camps and we’ll also be looking to bring you an interview as kick-off approaches.
If you’re on social media, use the hashtags #WeAreSouthport or #DAGvSOU.
Wherever you’re following the Port, make sure you keep in touch with all the action on Matchday Live.
