Fox Sports is making virtual reality a priority during the 2018 World Cup, giving enthusiasts greater control over gameplay angles and highlights

Broadcaster Fox Sports is using virtual reality to give viewers a better look at this year’s FIFA World Cup. The production team will be shipping truck loads of gear to Russia over the next month to make sure everything is prepared to capture the 64 matches of the tournament. Fox Sports will also continue its 2017 partnership with LiveLike to give fans access to VR suites, which are essentially the virtual version of having a private booth at the game. Inside the suites, Engadget reports, users can experience pitch action from multiple 180-degree camera angles and relive moments through a variety of replay features.

This immersive sport viewing experience is the product of much trial and error over several years of streaming large tournaments. Soccer is among the world’s most loved sports and with Fox Sports already broadcasting over half of the tournament on its standard channel, mixed reality elements will make for an exceptional viewing experience for the American audience.
