We will be following the team throughout the tournament with news, views and interviews including exclusive videos on our free membership channel. We will be bringing fans footage on periscope & our vine channel during the coming week. 

Executive Producer Alan Ryan is in South Africa with his production team looking to bring live coverage of the games from the pre-season tournament to Eagles followers back home in England.  

"On Saturday 18th July the CPFC production team successfully piloted their first live match stream in our 2-0 defeat to FC Union Berlin.  Whilst some viewers experienced little or no problems at all there were many who did have some difficulties when attempting to view the stream.   As explained in our publicity prior to kick off we did expect to encounter a variety of technical issues, some of which could not have been envisaged beforehand, which is why a "Live" test was necessary.  To that end the club are striving to eradicate further issues ahead of our planned live match streams from South Africa and we have already identified and solved a number of issues."

Further details of the live coverage will be announced later this week.
