Premier League will use fake crowd noise from FIFA video games to liven up matches

oy oy!

With Premier League set to restart soon, many people were wondering what exactly matches would look and sound like with games being played in an empty stadium. Luckily, the league has partnered with EA Sports to use their virtual crowd noise technology from the FIFA video games.

Fans will be able to decide if they want to use the feature and it will include not only the oohs and aahs that you’re used to when a big play happens but also chants and crowd tones that are specific to certain stadiums. Old Trafford won’t just sound like any old stadium, it will sound like Old Trafford.

You won’t have to wait much longer either, Premier League kicks off its strange 2020 season on June 17.
