Premier League closed-doors return to feature fans on live video wall

Getty ImagesPremier League clubs can give their supporters the chance to appear on a live video fan wall that will be streamed into stadiums as part of the return of English soccer's top flight this week. The move is part of a plan to minimise the impact of games having to be played behind closed doors due to the social distancing implications of the coronavirus pandemic. Other moves include a club-specific wrap around each stadium’s lower tiers, the use of music at key moments, and a designated ‘celebration cam’ for players to share their goalscoring exploits.

It is similar to the initiative debuted in Denmark by AGF Aarhus, who used teleconferencing platform Zoom to show supporters on a virtual grandstand during their game against Randers on 28th May. Tottenham were among the clubs to respond swiftly, confirming the video wall would be in place in time for their top-flight resumption against Manchester United on 19th June.
