Referee Camera For Video Analysis

Through the website I got talking to Blake Sporne. Blake has taken the dive into being a ‘freelance’ video analyst and while we were sharing some ideas he alerted me to a video he had taken a few weeks back.

He basically had one camera at the end of the pitch primarily focused on the referee and the other camera was a bullet-cam attached to a cap the referee was wearing. I think this is a fantastic idea and a novel way to use video. I’m sure the referee can see more than the bullet-cam shows but it gives a good idea of what he sees and his positioning on the pitch.

Blake is an independent video analyst and you can contact him on

Has anybody tried something similar that they want to share or got any comments on how valuable something like this is?
