Manchester City have announced a new project with versatile Canadian camera makers, GoPro.
GoPro is a company that manufactures high definition cameras, mainly to give a first person insight. It is often bought by adrenaline junkies who show off their stunts in high definition (HD).
Using GoPro's trademark point-of-view shooting, Manchester City will put their fans in the heart of their action. GoPro were given exclusive access earlier in the United States of America to Manchester City's players, staff and training session to test out their latest HD Pro 3 cameras. They were mounted on club coaches, French international Samir Nasri and English goalkeeper Joe Hart.
The video highlights a training session with Manchester City football club with fans getting exclusive access to a live experience, training as a professional footballer with Manchester City. One can see the dedication required by professional and many even enjoy the lighter side of the players which are rarely displayed on the pitch.
Go Pro were also involved in two of Manchester City's preseason games at the Yankees Stadium, covering the electric atmosphere using their latest technologically advanced devices.
This sentiment was shared by GoPro’s Head of Production, Wil Tidman, who added:
"It was an honuor for GoPro to work with Manchester City. The experience provided an amazing opportunity to showcase the unique perspectives and competitive edge our camera can offer to one of the most elite football teams in the world."
They are even testing out new 3D cameras which they feel could be a major hit in the near future.
