Premier League games are set for a groundbreaking change from THIS WEEKEND, giving fans even more access

PREMIER LEAGUE fans will get all-new access this weekend with a new camera feature.

Viewers who tune in to TNT Sports for the early kick-off between Wolves and Tottenham will have the opportunity to watch the game from a completely different angle.

That’s because one player from each team will wear a bodycam to warm up before the game at Molineux.

And so fans in their seats can see exactly what stars go through when preparing for a big game – including the various drills and shooting drills.

As reported by the Daily MailTNT and the Premier League have reached a historic deal to introduce the innovative new technology.

The two players will wear the special vests developed by the Israeli company MindFly.

The vests are equipped with a shatterproof, AI-powered stabilization body camera on the chest that allows a wide-angle view through a small hole in the kit.

The camera is said to be so light that it is barely noticeable to footballers who are used to wearing base layers and GPS trackers.

However, Ifab laws prohibit the cameras from being worn at competitive matches – meaning fans won’t get the incredible insight once the Wolves vs Spurs game begins on TNT Sports.

Rachael Nightingale, Premier League head of media operations and innovation, said: “Finding new ways to bring our fans closer to the action on the pitch is a key priority for us.”


“Following the success of bodycam testing at the Premier League Summer Series, we look forward to seeing what results this test will deliver for TNT and our audiences around the world.”

Fans got a glimpse of the future of live sports broadcasting as Youri Tielemans and Bruno Guimaraes wore the body cameras during pre-season training in the US.

Spectators were amazed at the speed of the friendly match, which required quick thinking and incredible levels of fitness.

A similar camera on referee Peter Bankes during Fulham’s game against Brentford also showed how difficult refereeing can be – and what they have to deal with when the ball is in and out of play.

At an FA trial, referees also wore body cameras to crack down on bad behavior and bad language towards officials, including in grassroots football.

And in May, Moises Caicedo strangely wore a bodycam for the pre-match handshake when Brighton hosted Manchester United.
