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.

Two Bundesliga clubs have tested the MyApplause app ahead of the German league resuming later this month.
Munich-based company hack-CARE is eager for Premier League clubs to adopt the technology ahead of their season potentially returning next month, according to reports.
The MyApplause app will be offered to Premier League clubs for free and they could reportedly receive a slice of revenue in the future.
But fans could be charged at least £1 to download the app in the first place.
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.
According to reports, Sky Sports and BT Sport could show some Premier League matches for free on YouTube.
