Danish soccer returned with a Superligaen matchup in which AGF Aarhus hosted Randers FC at Ceres Park. Like other sports leagues, Superligaen will have no fans in attendance, but Aarhus got creative on Thursday.
The team set up a Zoom video conference call and set up a wall of video. FOX Soccer got some pictures from the event where you could see the fans enjoying themselves.

In the return of sports around the globe, we’ve seen some teams use cardboard cutouts, and one team in Korea using robots. The upside to the Zoom idea is that theoretically fans could at least offer a little bit of noise through the video. The big question if the Aarhus organizers forced everybody’s line to be muted, or if we got to hear them.
Crowd noise was piped in, according to the Associated Press, but it would have been a lot of fun to leave everybody’s sound on and let fans cheer however they could through the Zoom video.
