Premier League Clubs Could Use German App For Fans To 'Send Cheers Or Jeers' While Watching From Home

Premier League Clubs Could Use German App For Fans To 'Send Cheers Or Jeers' While Watching From Home

Premier League clubs are weighing up the possibility of using an app that would allow fans to send cheers or jeers for matches held behind closed doors.

That's according to the Daily Mail, who reports that fans would be able to interact with live matches from their homes in the hopes of creating an atmosphere for fixtures.

The newspaper added that Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal have all held talks this week with a German tech company responsible for the crowd-imitating app.

The app would allow fans to choose from one of four choices to create noise, ranging from cheering and clapping to singing or whistling.

The MyApplause app could also be modified to generate different levels of noise for home and away fans during a match.

And the Daily Mail reports that clubs could be in favour of the move if they play at neutral venues, especially for creating a home-side buzz.

Jurgen Kreuz of hack-CARE has revealed that the app can support up to one million fans by delaying the transmitting sound by a tenth of a second.

The German company hasn't made a pitch to the whole of the Premier League yet and is hoping to spark interest with the big clubs first.
