Frequently asked questions

I’ve checked my junk folder, still no code
If you paid by PayPal, the code will go to the email address that you registered with PayPal.
I’ve still not got a code?
The mail server isnt liked by many corporate email gateways, so if you’ve registered a work email address it might never show up, if this is the case please DM us on Twitter @fcunitedmcr
Why can’t I watch an FA Cup/Trophy game outside the UK?
The English Football Association has made agreements with broadcasting companies around the world, and many of these own the exclusive rights for their countries, therefore we have to agree to only show FA Cup games in the UK, by geo-blocking to allow only UK IP addresses.
Hmmm, the picture quality isn’t amazing
The stream is broadcast in three different levels of definition, try one of the others to make sure you’re getting the best picture possible.
Also ensure that you’re best placed to get the strongest internet connection possible, streaming requires a good signal.
When can I start watching the stream?
The stream goes live typically between 15-20 mins before kick off

I thought you guys hated football on TV?
FC United is not opposed to live football being shown on television.
TV exposure and the revenue it generates are important to football. However, we believe that the balance has swung way too far in the TV companies’ favour - and too far away from the match-going, admission paying, regularly attending football supporter.
FC United seeks to change the way that football is owned and run, putting supporters at the heart of everything. This includes a better and more balanced relationship with TV.
