Sky Sports to make never-before-seen change for Arsenal vs Man City on Sunday

Sky Sports are set to make a never-before-seen change for Arsenal's Premier League clash against Manchester City on Sunday.

There will be plenty on the line when Pep Guardiola's side travel to the Emirates to face the Gunners, with both teams vying for top spot.

But among the drama, viewers tuning in to watch Sky Sports' coverage of the game will be treated to a brand new camera angle.

That's according to The Athletic, who claim that the broadcaster are preparing to introduce a never-before-seen angle to enhance spectator's experience.

The new angle called 'Game Mode' will be from the perspective of the gantry, providing viewers with an insight into what one may see see on a football video game.

Other broadcasters could well follow suit, too, with the Premier League set to make the system available to all of its domestic and international broadcast partners after it was successfully trialled during a WSL match between Arsenal and Liverpool last weekend.

Speaking about the new angle, Premier League head of media operations and innovation, Rachael Nightingale, said: “The Premier League is always looking for ways to enhance the broadcast experience for fans around the world.

“During this period of testing with Sky Sports and Arsenal, we hope ‘Game Mode’ will provide a new and exciting way to enjoy the action at home.”

Sky Sports director of production, Phil Marshall, added: “We’re very excited to see what ‘Game Mode’ can bring to the overall viewing experience for fans and believe it has great potential when it comes to in-game innovation.

“We thank Arsenal and the Premier League for their support in testing this innovation.”

The report adds that the usual angle will be available on a separate channel if fans don't like the new shot.
