July 24, 2019 By Ali M.
Fans at home can be transported to the Yankee Stadium, the venue of this friendly, after a VR partnership was announced.

Liverpool and Sporting CP are set to lock horns as both sides continue their preparation for the upcoming campaign. With the 2019/20 season right around the corner, this pre-season friendly should prove to be a crucial 90 minutes for both sides.

However, it's not the quality of the players on show that's grabbing the headlines right now, nor the fact that two popular teams from Europe will lock horns at the Yankee Stadium in the United States. No, the most eye-catching this about this fixture is that it will be shown in virtual reality?

How will this game be aired on VR?

As reported by Soccerex, NextVR has partnered with the Merseyside giants to virtually transport fans to the stadium via eight cameras placed around the stands. Anyone who is lucky enough to experience this pre-season friendly this way will be treated to "dedicated announcers for the build-up to the game, halftime analysis, and a post-match recap".

"Virtual Reality in technology is advancing at a very fast pace and transforming how sports fans consume content," NextVR’s Chief Operating Officer David Cramer said.

"Fans always want to be as close to the action as possible and now, with NextVR technology, they get to live the most exciting moments of this live football game to their fullest." 

How can this game be watched in virtual reality (VR)?
