Brighton are one of several Premier league clubs who have discussed playing artificial sound in stadiums to help generate an atmosphere.

The times claims top flight sides are exploring ways to minimize the loss of home advantage, if matches are to go ahead without any spectators at their own grounds , rather than natural venues which is also an option .

Reports also states clubs are looking to cover the huge empty seats that would be visible to viewers .

Brighton Chief executive , Paul Barber , said : “ We’ve started to give some thought internally into how we can make the stadiums better for home games.

Could we look at noise being brought to the stadiums in some way , because that’s what the fans at home watching would want ,and it will also help the players too , it will give them a feeling they are playing in an empty stadium .
