EPL’s historic move…. as Referee Jarred Gillett set to wear video camera

Referee Jarred Gillett will today wear a video camera for the first time in an English Premier League game during the match up between Crystal Palace and Manchester United.

He will use a head-mounted device called a ‘refcam’, although the footage will not be broadcast live.

The video will be used in a one-off programme providing insight into officiating in the Premier League.

Last year, Premier League referee Rob Jones wore a camera for a 2023 summer series match between Chelsea and Brighton in Philadelphia.

The use of bodycams was also trialled by the football association in adult grassroots football last year in an effort to reduce the amount of abuse officials at that level suffered.
