Laduma CEO, Ben Smith commented:
‘We are a company built on creating ground-breaking VR content and this project was interesting to us because it was a genuine industry first. To team up with a Premier League star and a well-respected global brand to create a piece of VR that gives fans unique and privileged access to one of their heroes was a huge challenge. Anyone who watches will get a glimpse of what it’s like to stand in the shoes of a Premier League footballer. Ross took a keen interest in the technology and the end result. He was fantastic to work with.’
