In keeping with Euroleague Basketball's commitment to enhancing the fan experience with new technologies, Turkish Airlines Euroleague referees on Thursday will become the first in sports history to wear micro-cameras in an official game when Real Madrid plays FC Barcelona.

The cameras, to be worn on the referees’ uniform shirts, will transmit live images that put fans in the center of the action, giving them the same visual perspectives as the referees. Euroleague Basketball is proud to debut this exciting, breakthrough technology in its Game of the Week, which features one of the classic sporting rivalries on the planet and will be broadcast to more than 150 countries.

This pioneering initiative, a first in world sports, is a collaboration between Euroleague Basketball, Canal + and First V1sion.The jersey cams have also been tested by players for FC Barcelona with the intention of players wearing them during an official game in the near future. Barcelona players who tested them in practice were unanimous in their enthusiasm for the jersey cams.
