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.
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
