Reds fans to score at the Kop in world-first VR experience

Liverpool Football Club is giving Reds fans the chance to score a goal in front of the famous Kop, thanks to a world-first Virtual Reality (VR) stadium experience.

Available exclusively to LFC stadium tour visitors, the unique ‘Score at the Kop’ experience replicates the sights and sounds of matchdays at the home of Liverpool FC and allows supporters to immerse themselves in the incredible atmosphere from a player’s perspective.

Every detail of Anfield has been meticulously reproduced and, using the world’s only full-body VR technology MiHiepa, fans will be transported onto the penalty spot in front of a sell-out Kop Stand, which will celebrate every goal in full-voice.

Liverpool FC are the first club in the world to adapt the elite training tool for use by its supporters, with the platform typically implemented by professional teams to measure and develop players’ performance, cognitive responses and decision-making capabilities.

The technology was debuted during the Club’s recent LFC World roadshows in Mumbai and Jakarta, and will be available as part of stadium tours at Anfield from Saturday (28th July).

Paul Cuttill, General Manager for Conference and Events, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to bring this experience home to Anfield for our visitors to enjoy.

“Scoring a goal in front of the Kop is usually something only players can experience, but now our fans can enjoy that euphoric feeling too. The level of immersion is above and beyond anything else in the world, so fans can truly get a taste of what it feels like to be a Liverpool legend out on the pitch at Anfield.”

The ‘Score at the Kop’ experience will be included free of charge with any stadium tour purchase between 28th July and 26th September 2018. For more information visit the website here.
