Drive-In Live Football Could Come To Premier League After Successful Czech Trial

Drive-In Live Football Could Come To Premier League After Successful Czech Trial

Around 300 lucky football fans watched live football at a drive-in movie theatre in the Czech Republic this week - an idea which Premier League clubs are reportedly considering.

Supporters in Pilsen were treated to Sparta Prague vs Viktoria Plzen on the big screen. Fans were shown drinking beers, singing, sitting on car roofs - and even letting off flares, which we're not sure is 100% safe. Let's also hope it was just non-drivers enjoying a pint.

Still, social distancing measures were in place and efforts were made to clean and disinfect vehicles which entered the drive-in theatre.

Home fans were rewarded for their passion with a 2-1 victory for Viktoria, currently second in the recently restarted Czech First League.

But the real winners could be football supporters around Europe, if the experiment is widely viewed as successful.

This will have particular emphasis given how concerned authorities clearly are on football fans congregating around empty-stadium games when the Premier League returns in June.

If the Czech model, which could next be trialled in Denmark by club side Midtjylland, is seen as a success it could be a fine solution. One that allows football fans to enjoy a live atmosphere, watch games on a big screen, while also maintaining distance from one another.

What do you think? Is drive-in live football something you'd like to see trialled by Premier League clubs? Let us know in the comments below.
