ACTIONABLE RESEARCH ON GEN Z AND MILLENNIALS

The Premier League is returning with “virtual crowd noise” from FIFA games in place of fans. 

The Premier League is returning with “virtual crowd noise” from FIFA games in place of fans. With the English Premier league restarting games soon, Sky Sports is working with the EA Sports FIFA division to create “simulated chants and crowd noises” for specific teams to mimic the usual live sports background cheering. The sports network is also working on other “innovative” experiences for viewers: on the Sky Sports website and inside the app, sports fans will be able to watch “select matches with friends in a video room and interact” as well as “influence the crowd noise they hear on screen.” (The Verge)
