For the first time ever, soccer fans will be able to experience watching all 64 games with virtual reality.  With the VR experience, you can walk into a premiere box and see the playing field. Looking right, or left will allow you to see what's inside this skybox, such as a TV, a bar and people sitting there. As the game is taking place, you can look at the game from different perspectives, or interact with different things inside the suite.

Catch free live streams of select FIFA World Cup matches on FOX Sports using your Oculus Go or Gear VR headsets. Hangout with your homies in Facebook’s VR social space as you cheer on your home team from the comfort of an immersive environment complete with the lights, sounds, and action of the real thing.

The World Cup is also available through the BBC Sport VR app which is available for free on iOS, Android, the Oculus Go, Gear VR, and Playstation VR.

Telemundo, the United States’ most popular American Spanish network is also offering 180-degree live VR coverage of all 64 matches in what may very well be the most ambitious VR coverage of the tournament yet.

Telemundo Deportes VR is available free for the Gear VR. Of course you’ll need authentication from your TV provider in order to enjoy all the excitement.
