Liverpool could use FIFA 20 crowd noise during behind-closed-doors games at Anfield

Liverpool could lift the Premier League title with the backdrop of supporters cheering on as the Premier League debate innovative ideas as part of Project Restart.

The 19/20 league season is due to resume on 17 June, with a full round of fixtures played the following weekend, including Liverpool’s fixture against .

All 92 remaining games will be contested behind closed doors and broadcast live in the United Kingdom, with Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC and Amazon Prime making a selection of 33 fixtures free-to-air between them.

Whilst the Premier League are keen to resume action, they wish to improve the watching-experience of supporters at home to offset the lack of atmosphere at grounds.

Clubs are set to approve the broadcasting of crowd noise from FIFA 20 when they meet on Thursday, with another detailed discussion set to take place between all stakeholders.

Per the Mail, viewers will be able to use the red button to watch matches live with FIFA 20’s crowd noise added in the background.

The Premier League will put further suggestions forward during their meeting with clubs on Thursday. These include a fan mosaic in the stands at each ground, 360° replays, and a new tactical cam which could provide a birds-eye or behind-the-goal view of the match.

Liverpool’s first fixture back, scheduled to be against at Goodison Park, is one of those considered being moved to a neutral venue.

However, Everton are hopeful the Merseyside derby will go ahead at Goodison Park, having requested Liverpool City Council to convene on the matter.

1,197 Premier League players and club staff were tested for coronavirus in the Premier League’s fifth round of tests on Wednesday. Of these, one club member tested positive from .
