FAN Take is a series that highlights trending events, issues, and decisions in the world of sports and analyzes how they may or may not factor into the Fan Controlled Football League. We would love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think about each FAN Take!
One of the few highlights of quarantine has been Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl’s storytelling, but this week he took his talents to The Atlantic, writing about the hole that the lack of live music has left in our lives. We feel that, just as strongly with live music as we do with live sports (what a surprise), and know the fans do too. But thankfully, artists are taking notice and doing what they can. While it may not be live, per se, people are still experiencing concerts in a different way. Some artists are doing livestreams, others are making past recordings of their concerts available on their YouTube channels, and a select few are doing special concert events in Fortnite.
We’ve previously discussed the impact that VR elements have added to live events for both fans in the stands and those watching from the comfort of home – from an augmented reality K-pop group performing at League of Legends Worlds to the Baltimore Ravens unleashing a bird to soar across the stadium. At the FCFL, we’re all about amplifying the league experience for the digital fan, so we need your help here! We want to know what would amplify the experience of every game for you. Do you want to feel truly immersed into the game with VR elements? Do you want to see those elements utilized to help you feel more connected to your specific team? Or the game you’re watching as a whole? Let us know, fans! At this point, anything is possible!
