During the summer, it was announced that National League North and South Clubs would stream all their games not subject to UEFA Article 48 regulations on National League TV.
This decision was made following a number of test events last March that were deemed to have proved an appetite for streaming National League North and South matches.
Sadly, the demand for streaming this season for National League North and South matches has not been enough to warrant the continuation of the streaming provision in its current guise.
The changes outlined below will allow the League to provide less games but apply more focus on those selected games and ensure a high-quality stream is provided.
What is changing?
From the beginning of February, the number of National League North and South games will be significantly reduced – however, selected fixtures will continue to be streamed and will be selected on a round-by-round basis. These will be communicated to fans in advance of the fixture and these fixtures will still be available both domestically and internationally.
There is no change for streaming provision in the National Division.
When will games be streamed?
On ‘full’ match days – fixtures will be selected from each division. Remaining ‘full’ match days are on the following dates:
- Tuesday 20 February
- Tuesday 12 March
- Saturday 23 March (International Break)
- Friday 29 March (Good Friday)
- Monday 1 April (Easter Monday).
Fixtures not on these dates that have been rearranged will be reviewed to assess their viability for streaming.
I have purchased a Season Pass – am I entitled to a refund?
Any supporters who have purchased a Season Pass and selected a National League North or South team as their selected team will be entitled to a pro-rata refund if they wish.

Will anything change next season?
Streaming provision for the National League North and South is under continual review between now and the conclusion of the current season. Any announcements about streaming for next season will be made in time for the new season.
