Football stadium in Metaverse from Manchester United

Just imagine watching football or any of your favourite sports in the metaverse. Well, soon you don’t need to just imagine, but you can experience it too. Yes, you read it right. With the help of virtual reality (VR) experts from Sony, Manchester City, the current English Premier League winners, has begun the building of the world’s first football stadium in the metaverse.

According to an exclusive story by inews.co.uk, City has teamed with Sony on a three-year initiative, and while the project is still in its early phases, teams of the company’s specialists have already visited the Etihad Stadium to map it digitally and construct a virtual reality version of it.

Thanks to image analysis and skeletal-tracking technology developed by Hawk-Eye, a subsidiary of the tech and entertainment behemoth, Man City’s stadium, the Etihad, will be transformed into the major centre of the club in a virtual reality environment.

The virtual Etihad Stadium would be full to capacity, allowing supporters who will never go to Manchester to watch live games from the comfort of their own homes, wherever they are in the world.

Hmm, I wonder when I will be able to watch an IPL match in the metaverse.
