Video: Here's a first look at what virtual crowds will look like

If you've been wondering what games on TV are going to look like as sports resume during the COVID pandemic, you're not alone. I think we can all agree that one of the strangest things about sports resuming is going to be getting used to watching games with little-to-no fans in the stands.

The technology being used is from Silver Spoon Animation and everything from clothing choices and team colors, cheers, and movement can be controlled - making for about as realistic of a look as one could expect during this difficult time.
