Sony and Manchester City Partner to Create Groundbreaking Metaverse Proof of Concept

Sony has teamed up with Manchester City soccer club to create a groundbreaking “proof of concept” for a metaverse, offering fans the opportunity to interact with a virtual version of the team’s Etihad Stadium using custom avatars.

The immersive experience will allow users to participate in activities at the virtual stadium, as well as experience highlights from multiple angles and even see digital recreations of the players themselves, all captured using just seven sensors.

This exciting development in the world of virtual reality shows promise for the future of sports fan engagement and the potential for widespread adoption of metaverse technology.

It is not yet clear when this proof of concept will be available or in which countries and regions, but it is a promising step towards the inevitable mass adoption of VR and metaverse technology.
