Real Madrid – Barcelona El Clasico to broadcast in virtual reality

The second El Clasico of the EuroLeague season between Real Madrid and Barcelona will be the first regular-season game to broadcast in virtual reality, the league announced on Wednesday.

EuroLeague Basketball and YBVR have reached an agreement that will bring select games into a whole new dimension that offers an immersive and social experience to fans.

Following a strategy to deliver new levels of innovation, Euroleague Basketball already collaborated with YBVR during the Final Fours in Cologne and Belgrade, allowing fans to take control of the action as though they were sitting at courtside through 180 and 360-degree cameras spread around the court.

The revolutionary production approach through VR will not just affect what the fans will watch but the ways in which they can interact while following the games, allowing them to change between cameras anytime they want with seamless interaction.

Fans watching on XTADIUM will also get real-time statistical overlays that can be toggled on or off and will be able to create private watch parties to enjoy the games with friends.

The VR games package will be included in all EuroLeagueTV subscriptions for all the countries where the service is operational, while USA fans will have the chance to watch on XTADIUM, the VR App developed by YBVR that is available on the Meta Quest Store.
