Tripods:

Simple, cheap but very effective. This tripod is one of the first tripods we bought to use for recording sports games. Very easy to use with a 3-way pan head and a quick release camera mount this is an excellent starter tripod. Including the carry bag the whole thing weighs 1.56kgs which makes it very easy to take with you no matter where you are recording. Click on the below link to buy on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2KULpE3

Memory Cards:

SanDisk 64GB Extreme PRO SDXC SD Card

Sandisk 64gb Extreme Pro Memory SD Card
Sandisk 64gb Extreme Pro Memory SD Card

It may seem like when recording sports that any old memory card will do but when dealing with large file sizes it is essential to have a good quality sd card with a high transfer rate. This card can transfer at speeds of up to 170 mb/s and with 64gb of memory you will never be running out of space when recording a game. Again this is a highly durable piece of equipment – it is Temperature Proof, WaterProof, shock Proof, and X ray Proof so there should not be any need to worry about it when out in the open air.
