But definitely, technology has improved, there is no need for actual fans to make atmosphere, Tebas is already searching such solutions.
For TV the solution has been there years ago. For example, here in the UK a comedian would prerecord his shows on television with no audience, but the production team would use "canned” laughter to create an atmosphere.
I love my football, but personally have no appetite for the game at this moment in time. Only see leagues (especially EPL) scrambling to restart the leagues to save their arses through the TV money.
