This enables fans to choose from four different camera positions and watch scenes live or scroll back a few minutes and watch them in replay from a multi-angle perspective or slow-motion. CamCheck is active at all home matches and is available live via the stadium Wi-Fi and a 5G network throughout St. Jakob Park.
