It’s almost time for action at the Kassam Stadium as Oxford United welcome QPR for a pre-season friendly this Saturday (2pm)
It’s a chance for Karl Robinson’s new faces to play at the stadium for the first time and after impressing at Crystal Palace on Tuesday night the U’s will be hoping to put the final touches to their preparations before they kick off the season proper against AFC Wimbledon at home in the Carabao Cup on Saturday 5th September.
The one thing missing will be the fans and we are certainly going to miss you. But there’s no need for season ticket holders to miss out on Saturday.
We have been working hard to find a way to stream the game live to our season ticket holders and believe we now have the technology in place to do so. Even better, it will have commentary from the excellent BBC Oxford Sport team to make it truly feel like a home game.
Season Ticket holders will receive an email with the link before kick off on Saturday* but there are still a lot of you who will miss out. The club is missing email addresses or correct opt-in information for a large portion of Season Ticket holders, which means you won't receive your exclusive link to watch the game straight to your inbox. Full information on how you can update your personal and opt-in details can be found by clicking here
And why give you one free gift when you could have two?
Our award winning matchday programme is back on Saturday and that is also FREE to season ticket holders. We will email you our amazing interactive digital programme 24 hours before kick off, complete with news, views, features and exclusive video content produced just for the programme.
Communications Manager Chris Williams told us
“The programme looks great and the interactive elements take it to another level. The streaming is new and is a challenge technically, especially with iFollow being under maintenance this week. I want to thank QPR who have been brilliant and offered us their stream of the game but we wanted to try and include BBC Oxford if we could because those are the voices that people love to hear describing our games.”
