Steelers Statement

The Sheffield Steelers would like to advise all our fans that from today our live streaming service will be selective. Due to a growing number of commercial outlets showing our webcasts illegally the Steelers have decided to show some but not all of the games during the remainder of this season. MD Tony Smith said” The live streams are a great option for away fans who can’t travel and home fans who for one reason or another cannot make the game, however when the live stream starts to affect  revenue at our home games a decision has to be taken”  Smith continued “ we will re-visit this issue at the end of the season”

The Steelers have also made a request to the SSSC to stop selling away travel for the remainder of the season, again Smith felt the combination of away travel sales  and live streaming could be affecting revenue into the Arena. In his match night programme notes tonight he commented “I have no concrete evidence  the two are affecting our arena income so for now I have asked our Supporters club  not to sell in the arena – obviously I cannot stop away travel from continuing and fans have the choice to organise this themselves. I apologise for any inconvenience or upset this has caused but can only do what I feel is right for the club”
