TV cameras on players' chests?

AIC President Damiano Tommasi confirms TV companies are testing miniature cameras on players’ shirts.

The experiment is planned by Sky Sport Italia and could eventually allow spectators to have a chest-eye view of the game.

“This idea of a miniature camera on the players’ shirts could bring fans the sensation of being increasingly inside the match,” said Players’ Association chief Tommasi.

“It is something I have heard about and I know they are evaluating whether it is possible to achieve, but there is a problem of reception.

“Besides, I also think we’d need to consider how this fits in with the rules of the game.”

If the camera were to include a microphone, it could also prove decisive in disciplinary matters.
