Premier League could take the unprecedented step of putting forward artificial crowd noise from FIFA 20 video games to support live broadcasts-with a vote scheduled for Thursday.
Premier League clubs are being asked to embrace the FIFA 20 video game crowd noise broadcast at their next meeting Thursday.
Using a bestseller soundtrack has emerged as the Premier League ‘s favorite choice to improve the back-closed-door TV experience as the season resumes on June 17, but clubs will have the final say.
The artificial crowd noise will be optional for UK viewers and displayed on the red button instead of the main channels, a proposal first disclosed by Sportsmail last month. Also, the Premier League ‘s broadcast advisory committee has come up with suggestions that will be put in on Thursday for clubs.
These include a mosaic of fans in the stands at any game showing the clubs involved, 360 ° replays, and a new tactical cam powered by Premier League analytics provider Second Spectrum. It is expected that the broadcasting plans will be accepted without opposition, although there will be uncertainty surrounding other topics that will be discussed on Thursday regarding the proposed resumption.
Clubs will be asked to approve the principle of using neutral venues for up to 12 matches that the authorities consider to be high-risk, to determine the method of assigning league positions in the event of curtailment, and to vote on proposals for disciplinary action if the Covid-19 protocols are violated.
The season is expected to resume with matches between Manchester City and Arsenal, and on June 17 between Aston Villa and Sheffield United.
