Saints vs Lincoln: Commentary update


As per previous rounds of the Carabao Cup, the club will be unable to offer free live commentary of tonight’s Carabao Cup match against Lincoln City due to EFL regulations.

Saints face their League One opponents at St Mary’s, in the fourth round of the competition, with the winner advancing to the quarter-finals.

While the club normally offers free audio commentary of its matches via and its mobile app, EFL regulations state that any live commentary on a Premier League club’s services must be behind a paywall if they face an EFL side in the competition.

Therefore, we will again not be able to make live commentary available via our Matchday Live page for this game. We regret any inconvenience this may cause to fans.

Supporters in the local area will still be able to listen to the match on BBC Radio Solent, while we will have our regular text updates in our Matchday Live centre, as well as coverage across our social media channels. Lincoln will also have a paid-for commentary service should fans wish to access this.

Tickets for the match also remain on general sale and can be purchased in advance by clicking here.
