The first-person perspective is a brand-new idea from Bruno Guimaraes of Newcastle and Youri Tielemans of Aston Villa in England's top division. The cameras were included in the GPS vests worn by the athletes, which record information like how far and how quickly they ran.
In order to provide the lens with enough viewing space, a hole was cut out of the shirt, giving the players the appearance of futuristic footballers. Additionally, they are mic'd up, enabling a completely exciting view from the seat on the couch.
In addition to speaking with those around him and jogging a lot in the middle of the field, Tielemans is seen in the video taking a corner and mingling with his rivals and the referees after the game. In Fulham's Summer Series match against Brentford, Premier League referee Peter Bankes also wore a body cam, allowing him to view Harry Wilson's incredible goal from a new angle. Premier League also posted "best body cam footage" that featured Bruno Guimaraes, Youri Tielemans, and Peter Bankes.
Watch the video here:
The Premier League has been working with an Israeli business named Mindfly to give their clubs the chance to employ the system, and the fans' opinion is unanimity that they want to see it implemented immediately. Referees have also donned the cameras, and if anything, their footage makes for a longer-lasting viewing experience because they are always close to the action and track every kick.
The International Football Association Board's most recent guidelines, which were posted on its website, prohibit the use of body cameras during competitive matches, thus sadly, these recordings will be scarce. The FIFA Quality Programme has set requirements for technology used in competitive matches. Working with the group, however, might result in future game clearance.
