Manchester City supporters will be able to try out a new smart football scarf during the 2022/23 season

Manchester City supporters will be able to try out a new smart football scarf during the 2022/23 season. 

The ‘Connected Scarf’, created in collaboration with tech company Cisco, has a biometric sensor integrated into the fabric. 

The sensor records a range of emotional and physiological responses, including heart rate, body temperature and blood flow through the skin. 

Scarf data will give the club a better understanding of how fans feel at different moments of a football match and the physiological emotions they go through. 

Fans could show a rise in heart rate and body temperature during crucial moments of a match – like a penalty miss or a last-minute winner, bucksays for example. 

Select supporters of Manchester City will sport the latest in wearable technology next season as the humble soccer scarf gets an upgrade, complete with a biometric sensor integrated into the fabric to monitor emotional, physiological and movement data
