I suggested the other day that potentially people could buy a digital subscription and get a ticket to watch by VR a live match, from the comfort of your own home hundreds/thousands of miles away. This would be an amazing way to cash in on all of those millions of digital only fans. Part of your subscription could be watching youth matches, womens matches, VR tours of the stadium, watching clips of old matches, reading digital match programmes etc. could be a massive money spinnerI'm on board with this but how do you see the augmented and virtual reality fitting in? I can see a future where people can VR into the stadium as if they are there in the stands but that doesn't mean much if you are actually there.
AR could be interesting. Getting live stats, replays, ball tracers etc whilst you watch in the stands. Surely that would mean everyone has to be wearing some kind of headset though?
I'd also hate it with a passion and moan about it constantly! Then again I despair every time broadcasters overlay tables of random stats onto their feed so I'm probably just being a miserable sod! It's going to be the future ain't it
