This Noise-Making App Helps Fans Cheer for Football Games from Afar

This noise-making app helps fans to remotely support Professional Football League games from afar. The Tunisian Government disallowed fans from attending any of the football games for safety reasons. Although sporting events can be watched live on the television, the players feed off the support of their fans and an empty stadium doesn't provide any motivation.

To help fans show their support, the Oglivy agency designed a the '12th Man App' and connected it to speakers in the stadium. The more fans that press the buttons on the app, the louder the sounds of cheering get in the stadium. Even though there are no people in the space, the sounds of fans cheering boom throughout the 40 speakers of the stadium. Even though fans are not allowed to be in the stadium, this is a great way to help fans show their support.
