Premier League To Vote On Use Of FIFA 20 Crowd Noise

Premier League To Vote On Use Of FIFA 20 Crowd Noise

Premier League clubs will vote this week whether or not to use FIFA 20 crowd noise for television broadcasts when the league restarts in two weeks.

English football fans have watched the return of the Bundesliga in the past two weeks with no crowd noise but when football in this country returns things could be different.

According to the Daily Mail, clubs will vote at their weekly Thursday meeting whether or not to broadcast fake crowd noise, taken from EA Sports' FIFA 20 game, during games to give a more 'normal' feel to games.

The report claims that the noise would be optional for viewers at home, through red button options, unlike in some South Korean K-League matches and American coverage of the Bundesliga, where crowd noise was part of the usual broadcast.

Fans have been able to hear the players shouting during games in the German top tier, without the crowd to drown out the players, and it would be interesting to listen in should that be the same when the English top tier returns.

All 92 games left are set to be shown and fans would certainly get a feel for which players are the loudest on the pitch but others may prefer the normality that crowd noise gives.

As well as voting on crowd noise the league are due to discuss other 'innovations' to do with the broadcast of the games, including 360 degree replays, a new tactical camera and cameras in the changing rooms.

The use of neutral venus for certain high profile fixtures, such as the Merseyside derby and the north London derby, is also set for a vote on Thursday.

According to reports last week the league and clubs want the games to go ahead in their usual venues but the police authorities are worried about fans turning up to celebrate outside the ground, ignoring social distancing rules, something that is extremely insulting to fans.

The league will restart on June 17th with Manchester City vs Arsenal and Aston Villa vs Sheffield United, the two games that were postponed due to the two home sides competing in the Carabao Cup final.

Once those two games are played everyone will have played the same amount of games, something that may be very important should the league have to stop again before all fixtures can be completed.

Would you listen to crowd noise if given the choice when the league restats? Let us know in the comments.
