The Vanarama National League has confirmed that all the play off matches in the top tier as well as North and South divisions will be live streamed one way or another.

Details of how Slough Town fans will be able to watch their side at home to Dartford in the National League South eliminator are limited at the moment but a post on the league website says a partnership between BT Sport and Sportradar will allow the games to be shown on a brand new platform.

The Rebels are due to kick off their ‘Road to the National League’ on Sunday at 1:30pm in the snappily titled Elimination Round Match A, the winners will then face Havant & Waterlooville in the semi final and then either Weymouth, Bath City or Dorking Wanderers in the final on Saturday 1st August.

National League Chief Executive Michael Tattersall said: “Due to matches being played behind closed doors, confirming a broadcast solution for fans has been an important part of our play-offs preparation.

“This pioneering streaming service will create an opportunity for exposure of the competition on a global stage.

“We would like to thank existing partners BT Sport and Sportradar for their support during this process.”

We eagerly await news of exactly what the pioneering streaming service will be. In the meantime, the Vanarama National League South play-off fixtures and dates in full are:
