From David Del Valle in Madrid

Spanish TV company Mediapro is set to produce live TV streaming of Arabian Gulf League football matches in Virtual Reality for the rest of the current season.

At least 10 out of the most important football matches will be produced in VR following the agreement between Mediapro Middle East and the football League of the United Arabian Emirates (UAE).

Mediapro will produce the content along with Visyon, a specialist in VR, through the VRoadcaster platform.

Arabian viewers will be able to enjoy an immersive experience as if they were sat in the stadium or stood on the pitch by selecting various camera angles via VRoadcaster. The content will be available through Android, iOS and most other common operating systems.

The project is called AGL VR Seat Experience and is sponsored by the telco Etisalat.
