Since there is no crowd in Football games right now. The intensity is significantly reduced, and games can become boring to watch. However, TV Channels and Leagues are now using different tactics to increase intensity. Leagues like Bundesliga are using, high tone music in the background when the game is being played.
Others are using, cardboard cutouts of fans, and so on. Similarly, the biggest football league, Premier League is set to return on 17th June, after being paused due to COVID-19. The League Broadcasters, Sky Sports will be using FIFA’s crowd noises to add a bit of vibrance to the viewership.
According to Sky Sports, EA had actually created team-specific crowd noise and chants “to replicate the vibrant atmosphere of Premier League clashes, so fans don’t miss out on the noise that goes with the action”.”
“We want Sky Sports viewers to still feel it all and have the best possible viewing experience – even if they can’t be in the stadiums or watch with their family and friends,” said Sky Sports managing director Robert Webster.
