The British online casino operator Sportsbet.io has been known in the online gambling industry for a long time. The operator decided to overcome the lockdown with the help of virtual reality.
As part of its partnership with Southampton FC, the bookmaker Sportsbet.io has introduced virtual reality (VR) technology to cover the game day at the club’s home stadium. Now viewers can watch panoramic videos of exclusive football content directly from mobile devices.
The initiative belongs to the PR agency Fuse, which came up with an unusual way to advertise the company at Home Matches Southampton. With the help of VR, the title sponsor of the Saints hopes to attract football fans.
The reputable VR and AR East City Films agency has taken over the production of 360-degree live content. Now Southampton fans can get a unique experience, such as a tour of the stadium with a famous club player or a seat in the front row on the training ground. Entries are published on the official YouTube channel of the bookmaker’s office, they can be watched without a special VR headset.
Sportsbet.io has long been known for its reputation and authority in the online gambling industry. It is one of the famous Bitcoin football betting sites and was a pioneer in BTC gambling. Sportsbet.io currently sponsors a lot of Premier League teams and looks forward to increasing its partnerships even more. In general, the trend of Bitcoin football betting has become a norm in the past few years when the value of Bitcoin hit its maximum.
The technology was first used in December 2020 before Southampton’s home game against Manchester City. East City Films recorded a tour of St Mary’s Stadium with Saints legends Francis Benali and Matthew Le Tissier, as well as a penalty masterclass.
How is Southampton doing this season?
Even though there have been positive moments for Southampton in this season we can say that the team is doing pretty badly in the recent period. The Saints have lost 6 Premier League matches in a row, with the recent one being against Wolves. They have also suffered a humiliating 9:0 defeat against the Red Devils and Ralph Hasenhuttl is on the brink of getting fired.
They also defeated former champions Liverpool 1:0 but have struggled since then. Currently, the team sit in 13th place in the Premier League with their next game coming on 20th February against Chelsea, who have been in form and won 4 games in a row.
Candidate for relegation?
Southampton are currently 11 points above the relegation zone, but if they continue to play like this the threats of being relegated will fall upon them. Danny Ings, who is a leader of the team struggles to score goals, as well as Theo Walcott and Moussa Djenepo. Still, it is earlier to talk about the future, because Southampton have proved to be able to come back with incredible results.
