Fox to feature corner flag cameras at MLS Cup final

Fox will use cameras on corner flags for Saturday’s MLS Cup final as part of a 26-camera set-up at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

“There are probably a finite amount of camera positions left in terms of soccer coverage,” said Michael Davies, Fox Sports senior vice president of field and technical operations.

“We have seen the value of pylon cameras in American football from time to time, so we decided to try the corner flags. We’ll look for opportunities to use this new view to enhance our storytelling.”
