On Screen Creations are proud to be providing all of the video content for Guernsey FC in the 2016/2017 season, as they compete to gain promotion in the Ryman Isthmian League Division 1 South.
Guernsey FC drew 2-2 against Thamesmead Town in the preliminary round of the FA Cup at Footes Lane earlier this month. Three days later we joined the squad who travelled at short notice to the opposition’s home ground for a replay. As we had over 1000 fans visit Footes Lane for the previous Preliminary Round, the replay played at the Thamesmead home ground provided the perfect platform to announce the new video offering. It seemed logical to announce our live streaming subscription package for a game that lots of supporters back in the Bailiwick would want to watch but wouldn’t be able to see in person.
Testing began back in the middle of last season where I tested out various applications on mobile devices on home games whilst a few select mainlanders tuned into the broadcast I was able to make available. A few months later, and after considerable investment in new broadcasting equipment and learning the ropes of the new broadcasting platform based on a Mac Book Pro, we are at the point where, behind a paywall, we are able to show them the full 90 minutes with live commentary, a running stopclock and in due course, live action replays and further video features to enhance their viewing experience.
The new GuernseyFC.com platform has provided the ideal opportunity to enhance the video opportunities available to supporters. This season we are pleased to be offering a selection of video packages that include an interactive goal of the month feature where you can vote for your favourite goal, match day highlights, as well as the new match day livestream feature in addition to the full playback of the 90 minutes.
We also have a dedicated Facebook & Twitter page so you can stay up to date with the latest video content made available on GuernseyFC.com/gfctv. So what are you waiting for Green Lions fans, head over to GuernseyFC.com and sign up! #COYGL
