Stansted's match against Holland FC in the Essex Senior League's Len Cordell Memorial Cup has been selected for its live-streaming pilot.
The Airportmen will take on the seaside club on Saturday April 17 (3pm kick-off) in Group C of the competition and the fixture will be available to watch on an online pay-per-view service for a nominal fee.
Stansted had been placed in a group with Sawbridgeworth Town, Bishop's Stortford's tenants Enfield and Saffron Walden Town, but all three have subsequently withdrawn. Ground works have forced Enfield and Walden to withdraw while Sawbo have opted out for financial reasons, although their second string are still due to feature in the Len Cordell Memorial Trophy for reserve teams.
The Essex Senior League are working with WD Sportz and Ticketpass.org to live stream selected fixtures. The latter will donate 50% of its profits to charity.
Stansted will begin their cup adventure against FC Clacton on April 10. After taking on Holland FC on April 17 they will meet Billericay Town reserves on April 24.
