Matters arising from mtg 37 to discuss:

Queries made via FMTTM website :

a) I am an expat – I pay my £5 and watch the match on Boro Live. When a match is on TV, Boro do not show it at all. Most other clubs will show it to non-contracted countries – this is the list from “i-follow” of partner countries – https://www.efl.com/iFollow/international-broadcasters/ My country, Thailand is not on this list so surely Boro could and should be showing it to Boro fans in Thailand and many other countries. This season I have watched it on several occasions from the opposition website on “i-follow”. For example – I recently watched Nott Forest on their link. I have contacted Boro FC on each occasion this has happened and have been told it has been passed over to the development team.

Can you check to give me an update, Rob – worth trying to see why this is so. Thanks, Rob.

b) Gordon asked regarding celebrating 25 years at the Riverside. Anything planned for next season? Would an Anniversary shirt incorporate the dates?
