Premier League TV plan to include option of fake crowd noises and could give unprecedented dressing room access

PREMIER LEAGUE TV plans will include the option of fake crowd noise and could give fans rare dressing room access, according to reports.

TV coverage is one of the items on the agenda at today's meeting between all 20 Premier League clubs.

Sky are said to be one of the channels considering the move for the games that will be played behind closed doors from June 17, according to the Mirror.

Supporters had the option to listen to fake crowd noise during recent Bundesliga matches and the feedback was mixed.

Some fans got behind the idea but many said it was "too weird" and had to "mute the unnatural sound".

As a result, Sky could offer each game on two of their channels - one with crowd noise, and one without.

The effects will reportedly be taken from the FIFA 20 video game.

Premier League chiefs also set up committee to consider the prospect of half-time interviews and dressing room access - much like American sports coverage.

However, several managers have expressed concerns about the suggestion believing the dressing room to be sacrosanct.

Both Sky and BT will be able to have their commentators and reporters in the stadiums but they will have to abide by strict protocols and rules.

But their pundits are expected to be based off site so Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher are unlikely to be at the games.
