Like many teams the Sixers have limited or no fans (as of 1/25 they were not allowing fans) at games. This makes scoreboard cams a little trickier.
But the Sixers found a solution to still show their fans supporting the team and connected to the show, with Family Cam.
I love the simplicity of this crowd-sourced album: Fans in Sixers gear, supporting the team while at home with family. So much right with this.
Of course it also makes a great social post.
Finally, for teams who have some fans in arena but are challenged finding enough fans to fill a time out they can use these images to fill in the gaps. Or use them to create more time for camera operators to find the next shot. Then package the results for a social media post that blends the in-arena fans with the fans at home.
Great work around by the Sixers.
