For those Bucs fans who can’t wait to get a taste of the newly renovated Raymond James Stadium, the team unveiled a virtual sneak peak on Tuesday and most fans won’t be disappointed.
The teams official website, Buccaneers.com, described what fans can see online, and also in person at One Buccaneer Place.
“The New Raymond James Stadium Experience – a comprehensive visualization of the $140+ million stadium renovation that utilizes state-of-the-art computer modeling and virtual reality technology – to provide fans with the ability to virtually sample the new gameday enhancements that will debut beginning with the team’s 2016 season.
The centerpiece of the new initiative is the PreView Center, a dedicated interactive space located at the team’s training facility, One Buccaneer Place, which features a first-of-its-kind virtual reality presentation co-hosted by Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston and team insider Casey Phillips. Through the use of an Oculus Rift VR headset, the user is guided through a field-level virtual tour of the all-new videoboard displays by Winston before heading up to experience the all-new, all-inclusive Hall of Fame Club offerings. The Buccaneers are the first professional sports team to integrate live 360 video inside a 3D environment with full freedom of motion touring capabilities.”
Bucs COO Brian Ford talked about the virtual stadium experience.
“The addition of ‘The New Raymond James Stadium Experience’ allows us to showcase all of the exciting changes that are taking place in preparation for the upcoming season. While there’s nothing quite like attending a Buccaneers game in person at Raymond James Stadium, the PreView Center, through the use of innovative technology, allows us to simulate the experience and provide potential members with a great representation of what they can look forward to this fall.”
