New Japan Pro Wrestling issued the following press release announcing that the promotion will be using their new "Remote Cheerer System" for the upcoming Summer Struggle supershow from Jingu Stadium. This is to allow fans to give reactions to NJPW action without fear of spreading COVID-19. Check out the details below.
At present, in compliance with our Coronavirus guidelines and in a bid to promote a safe viewing environment, fans in attendance at NJPW events are currently being asked to refrain from using loud voices and chanting. We thank all of our fans for adhering to these requests.
As we continue to look for new ways to encourage our fans to express themselves at live events, we’re excited to adopt Yamaha’s ‘Remote Cheerer Powered by Sound UD’ system for the following events.
Wednesday August 26 Korakuen Hall (test)
Thursday August 27 Korakuen Hall (test)

Yamaha’s technology is currently in use in pro baseball and soccer events in Japan, and will offer fans bleeding edge technology to allow their voices to be heard, without having to raise their voice!
(System is only for use by attendees. Attendees will be instructed on the system’s use on arrival in the venue)
