The possibility of watching Super Bowl L on February 7, 2021, live in Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida is low; however, the odds are in our favor if we were to watch the Super Bowl LVI, on February 6, 2022, LA Stadium at Hollywood Park, Los Angeles, California, LIVE via Virtual Reality.
With COVID-19 changing every way of life as we know it, sports are being hit hard. Fans are not allowed to attend, no gathering in sports bars, yet alone leagues all over the world are being postponed, if lucky played behind closed doors and in many cases cancelled all together. TV rights are the main source of financial income to a sports club, that goes across the board for just about any sport.
If the next El Clasico is to be played in Camp Nou with Zero or if lucky 50% attendance, the TV rights will become the sole source of income. Fans are not going to be satisfied with just watching on TV missing out on the Live action and feel of being at the stadium. And comes the opportunity, VR.
FOX Sports VR lets you watch top live sports events in Virtual Reality from your own VIP stadium suite or from on-the-field camera positions. The potential of having full VR from your own VIP couch at home to cover the 2022 FIFA World Cup should in fact be a tangible possibility. FIFA and Qatar cannot possibly think, with this Virus lingering for the next few years, that filling a 40,000 or 60,000 seat stadium will be a reality, but it can be a Virtual Reality.
