There’s no wrong way to watch the game. Whether from the stands or from the couch or from the pub, you have the best seat in the house. MLS has upped the ante with ref cams during the MLS All-Star match.
Please, please, let this be a regular thing.
MLS hooked referee, Allen Chapman, up with a body camera to bring a unique angle to the match. The footage has been edited and there’s very little match audio that you can make out–the unedited footage with player commentary sure would be interesting though. The video looks like it’s straight out of the Guy Ritchie Nike ad produced some years ago.
While we may be some time away from seeing this kind of angle live during matches, it certainly adds an entertaining way to relive the intensity of the match.
