SPORTSBET.IO & SOUTHAMPTON FC: 360° Video Tour
BRAND: Sportsbet.io / Southampton FC
PRODUCTION COMPANY: East City Films
OUR ROLE: Sound Recording, 3D Audio Postproduction
As part of their club partnerships with Southampton FC, cryptocurrency sportsbook Sportsbet.io commissioned East City Films to create a new VIP experience that uses VR technology to recreate the magic of matchday, at home. Viewers can now watch full 360° videos of exclusive football content straight from their mobile devices, as a part of the innovative new initiative.
This first Virtual Reality experience was delivered in December 2020 ahead of Southampton FC’s home fixture against Manchester City and featured a tour of St Mary’s stadium with Saints legends Francis Benali and Matthew Le Tisser, as well as a penalty masterclass with Le Tissier. More activity is due throughout 2021, with the potential to further expand the experiences on offer across their club sponsorships.
1.618 Digital was brought in to assist with location sound and audio post-production on this project.
