Have you ever wanted to sit courtside at a top Turkish Airlines EuroLeague game but not leave the comfort of your own home? Well, now you can with EuroLeague VR!
On Friday, February 24, get even closer to the action by using EuroLeague VR to watch Valencia Basket and Olympiacos Piraeus – two of the hottest teams in the EuroLeague – face off at La Fonteta.
A few weeks ago, in Round 21, this season’s first game with VR capability took place, as Real Madrid hosted archrival FC Barcelona at WiZink Center. Getting tickets for El Clásico is often a very difficult task, particularly if you want to sit courtside, but by using VR, fans were able to see the action up close and personal.
Thanks to the partnership between Euroleague Basketball and YBVR, a joint venture that first began at the Final Four events in Cologne and Belgrade, fans can enjoy the game from courtside thanks to the 180- and 360-degree cameras placed around the playing floor.
What’s more, fans are able to tailor the experience to their own needs and desires because it is possible to seamlessly switch between different camera angles to find the angle that suits them best.
Anyone watching on XTADIUM also has the ability to see the statistics in real time – a function that can be toggled on or off – and create private watch parties to take in the game with friends and family.
It is possible to watch these selected EuroLeague games in VR as part of the EuroLeague TV subscription package, while fans in the United States can use this technology via XTADIUM, the VR app created by YBVR that is available to download at the Meta Quest Store.
