Following on from the launch of the new mfc.co.uk in the summer and the revamped Middlesbrough FC Official App, the club is continuing to develop its digital capability to provide supporters with an enhanced online experience.
Online Ticket Office Upgrade
This Tuesday, November 28, the MFC online ticketing website will be receiving an update to improve the user experience. Key benefits of this upgrade are:
- The ticketing site will be fully responsive across mobile, tablet and desktop and will be quicker to load
- The interactive seating map has been redeveloped to work on all devices, modern browsers and operating systems. It will also have added functionality such as pinch to zoom and landscape view when using smaller touch screens
- The ticketing site will be clearer and easier to use, with better search/filtering facilities to simplify the purchasing process
As part of the upgrade, some downtime is to be expected and supporters are advised to avoid using the eticketing site on the morning of Tuesday November 28. It is anticipated that the deployment will be completed by 10.30am, but the site may be unavailable for longer.
Live Commentary Now Available in-App
Live audio matchday commentary is now available within the Middlesbrough FC Official App on both Apple and Android. This adds greater choice to those supporters wishing to listen to the games live and allows them to take advantage of the benefits of using an App, such as the ability to allow audio to play in the background while using other functions of the device.
Supporters need to have a valid subscription to listen to live audio commentary on the Middlesbrough FC Official App.
Owing to licensing regulations with the EFL, there is a stipulation that live audio commentary on club websites must be placed behind a paywall for fans both in the UK and around the world. Further detail regarding the audio commentary charges and the different options available to supporters.
