Welcome to our new website!

6 June 2017

Sheffield Wednesday are pleased to reveal the club’s brand new website, swfc.co.uk.

From today, supporters will notice a fresh, clean, new look to the Owls’ official website.

Over the past six months, the media department at Hillsborough have been working hard behind the scenes to mould the new website, provided by new EFL digital partners Realise, and have all aspects ready for launch.

In addition, Wednesday PlayerHD has now been replaced in tandem to provide a completely fresh digital offering to supporters and subscribers to the club’s premium service.

PlayerHD will take up its new guise as ‘iFollow’ and we are delighted to welcome on board new providers, NeuLion – industry experts in digital video broadcasting and live streaming.

iFollow will, for the first time in English football, enable EFL fans based outside the UK and Ireland to watch their team live during the regular EFL season.

Kicking off at the start of the 2017/18 EFL season, overseas subscribers will pay the equivalent of £110 per season for the service.

Fans based in the UK and Ireland will still have access to live audio commentary, highlights packages, full match replays and exclusive content as part of the new offering.

For any questions regarding the switch from PlayerHD to iFollow, including subscriptions and payments, please email iFollow@efl.com.

SWFC director of communications Trevor Braithwait said: “We are extremely pleased with the look and feel of the new website and believe the iFollow premium service will be a fantastic addition to the digital side of the business.

“With the help of various analytical tools, swfc.co.uk over the past number of years has proven a consistently high performer amongst the top EFL and Premier League clubs on the platform, in terms of traffic, unique visits, page impressions, content output and subscribers.

“And as we welcome a new era for swfc.co.uk, we are very confident we will continue to see these figures rise as more and more Owls fans enjoy our unique and dedicated content over the season on a daily basis.”
