WITH the new season just around the corner, we are doing everything possible to try and get you back into the Global Energy Stadium. Until then, we are doing our best to bring Ross County FC to you.
Next week, Season Ticket holders will receive their individual Pass to RCFCTV with login details which provide access to live match day broadcasts from Dingwall. The Club are endeavouring to make the RCFCTV process as easy as possible to access and use, however a technical support team will be in place on match days and during the week, to help with any enquiries. Details on how to contact the team will be included with your login details.
As this is a new way to watch the Staggies, here are the answers to some of the key questions you may have.
We will continue to communicate information regarding the Virtual aspect of Season Tickets across the club’s various channels over the next week, so please take a moment to familiarise yourself with how it will operate in order to give you a smooth matchday experience.
