Fans Of Brighton & Hove Albion Get Virtual Reality Experience

Tue 1st Nov 2016 | IT & Technology

Brighton & Hove Albion are giving fans a virtual reality experience takes them behind the curtain on a matchday, with an up-close look at player warm-ups, the tunnel, and even at the heart of a goal celebration.

The experience is the first of its kind in the UK country and following a successful launch in the club’s fanzone, will be exclusively available within the family stand at the stadium from their match with Aston Villa on 18th November.

The virtual reality experience will form part of a renovated family stand concourse at the Amex, putting the club at the forefront of stadium innovation.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s head of marketing, Tom Gorringe said: “It is important for us to be doing all we can to improve the experience here at the Amex for all supporters, but particularly our younger fans.

“Having been at the stadium for five years, we wanted to give the family stand a bit of a face-lift and were interested in how we could use innovation and technology to do this.

“The VR experience created is unique in the fact that all of the footage was shot live at a match and it takes you into the heart of the action to places that you wouldn’t normally be able to go.

“The other aspects of the stand are interactive and in some aspects, educational, and so we hope that this will prove extremely popular with our supporters.”
