Incredible footage of Feyenoord – Ajax game sets benchmark for rest to follow

In the modern era of innovating and evolving, doing something out of the ordinary is what sets one apart from the other. Various TV stations have attempted to innovate their broadcast with some neat additions, some have added the use of statistical data in their regular broadcast taking the game to new heights, tactical analysis during the half-time show with some neat graphics have further expanded the way we see the game, clubs have jumped in with some fascinating behind the scenes tunnel-cam footage for their YouTube channels, and as seen in Ligue 1, broadcasters have also added different camera angles changing the viewing every time the ball reaches a crossing position down the flanks.

But with all this innovation, some times, a simple alteration is all that it takes to set yourself apart. Dutch freelance camera man, Ben De Graaf, uploaded this video of his footage of the Feyernoord – Ajax game this weekend at the De Kuip. It has been described by him as a “One-take shot”. Upon further research we learnt that he is a Movi Operator, which is a fancy type of camera to take a single continuous shot.

The results are absolutely magnificent, with an incredible view, helped by the incredible stadium appearance and atmosphere for the biggest game in Dutch football.

We suggest you watch this in full-screen mode. It’s absolutely fantastic, and you are sure to be impressed.

The experience provided by this sort of footage has rarely been experienced before, except some daring advertisements and the MLS All Star game vs Roma last season, where the referee was fitted with a GoPro camera.

Hopefully, leagues and broadcasters across Europe take note of this and follow suit. Stats, data, graphics and what not have all improved our TV viewing of football games from the comforts of our living room. But a simple change of cameras, could take it to a whole new level.
