    You are correct the MLS is facing some serious times. Whatever is planned to replace the season it will not bring in much revenue. Even after the worse of this pandemic is over people may be afraid to return to stadiums.
    It will be most likely next year before there is a vaccine and unless if is shown to be safe and not rushed into distribution, many may not get the shot. Then there are those who for some reason say they will never get the shot and are willing to put others in danger.
    This does not make the future very bright for World Football and sports in general..

    Right before kick off on the Dortmund and Bayern Munich match the announcer stated that we would be able to hear everything on the pitch but instead all we heard was that fake piped-in noise. Showing a stadium that is empty and playing that piped-in noise is fake.
    Yes, crowd noise makes the match better but not when it is fake noise. I really really really do not like it!!! If there is no crowd in the stands, I want to hear the action on the field, the kicking of the ball, the communication of the players and the coaches. I want what is real, not some fake noise.
    Had the match playing in my office and one of my co-workers came in and saw the match on and the first thing this non-soccer watching person said was “what’s up with the crowd noise when there is nobody in the stands, that is just wrong.”

      Agreed. The sound of the crowd follows – and sometimes influences – the flow of the game. The fake crowd noise doesn’t quite follow that flow. So it is distracting.

      Just to confirm, it isn’t coming from the stadiums’ PA systems, right?

        The artificial crowd noise is coming from Sky Deutschland. They’re making an audio feed available to broadcasters worldwide that contains artificial crowd noise, if they want it.

        The only noise in the stadium is from the players and managers. Nothing on the PA.
