In an effort to enhance the match viewing experience while adhering to precautionary measures, the UAE Pro League announced a set of innovative initiatives ahead of the Arabian Gulf Cup final which brings together Shabab Al Ahli and Al Nasr at Sharjah Stadium on Friday, April 9th.
The match will see the UAE Pro League introduce the in-stadium interactive crowd noise for the first time, as players will be able to hear the fans’ chants as they fight for the Arabian Gulf Cup title. In an effort to unify the match experience, the same crowd noise will be used in-stadium and on TV coverage.
The match will be broadcast in 4K using more than 22 cameras, as well as augmented reality, 360 virtual reality, and player point of view technology. The event will also see the use of visual effects to feature the teams’ and competition’s logos as well as statistics.
The event is set to kick off with a magnificent musical production that draws inspiration from the Year of the 50th Cup Final slogan. It is produced under the supervision of poet and lyricist Ali Al Khawar and in collaboration with singers Fayez Al Saeed and Balqees.
