The Rams and The Brewers: How to listen and watch!

As the 2009-10 football season gets underway, here's how you can follow Derby County and Burton Albion on BBC Derby with commentaries, match reports, audio and video.

Following the Rams and the Brewers on BBC Radio Derby

BBC Radio Derby now has the privilege of following two league clubs throughout the season and providing commentary on all games for both sides.

But with two teams to follow, often playing at the same time, we've had to split our frequencies between them. So here's how it will work...

Derby County logo

DERBY COUNTY: Commentaries of the Rams games will ALWAYS be available on BBC Radio Derby's FM frequencies (104.5FM, 95.3FM and 96FM). If Burton Albion are NOT playing at the same time, you'll also be able to hear the Rams on 1116AM.

Burton Albion logo

BURTON ALBION: Commentaries of the Brewers will ALWAYS be available on BBC Radio Derby's AM frequency 1116 kHz. On Saturdays, if Derby County are NOT playing at the same time, you'll also be able to hear the Brewers on 104.5FM, 95.3FM and 96FM. There may be other occasions when we can bring you the Brewers on FM frequencies as well, but this will be decided on a game-by-game basis.

So, normally on Saturdays when both teams kick off at 15:00, you'll need to tune to FM for the Rams and AM for the Brewers.

See all the goals!

New for this season - you can now watch all the goals in a new service - right here!

All the goals from Derby, Chesterfield and Burton league matches will be available to watch online:

  • Saturday goals will normally be available from early on Monday morning
  • Sunday goals will normally be available from early on Tuesday morning
  • Mid-week game goals will normally be available from around 10pm on the following day.

You'll find the video available as part of the match report for seven days. Use the links on the right to get to the most recent match reports.

Please note that this service is only available to internet users in the UK.

Following the Rams and the Brewers online

Live scores and match reports will be available for both teams for almost all of their matches - and you'll find links through to those games from our homepage, bbc.co.uk/derby. Some post-match interviews and previews will also be available.

Commentaries are more complicated, though, and the rules are very strict.

In short, the BBC is NOT allowed to make football league commentaries for either the Rams or the Brewers available on its websites - so, sorry, but you won't be able to find commentary on this site for league games.

The reason for this is that the commentaries are legally owned by the Football League and although they grant us the rights to broadcast those commentaries on the radio, they have not given us the right to stream those commentaries on the web. That is a national arrangement.

However, BBC Radio Derby does share those commentaries with the clubs and the clubs DO have the right to stream the commentary on their own websites. The clubs make a charge for that service (but please note that the BBC does not receive any money from those subscriptions). We understand, though, that Burton Albion's website may not be in a position to offer commentary for a few weeks.

FA Cup matches are different and we DO have the right to stream commentaries of those games and games in some other competitions. We will stream those commentaries we have the rights to via links available in our Sport section.
