Dundee company OOVIRT have teamed up with Dundee United to offer the country’s first VR stadium tour, which will allow disabled people and those with mobility issues the opportunity to visit previously inaccessible areas of Tannadice.
Fans will be able to navigate their way around varying sections of the stadium, taking a “virtual walk” from the outside to the accessible seating area, as well as the player’s tunnel, the dressing rooms and the hospitality areas.
Further to this, they will be able to test out the view from the any section of Tannadice’s five stands, including parts previously only accessible via long flights of stairs.
Almost the entire ground has been captured digitally, as well as the club shop.
Tourist body Visit Scotland estimates accessible tourism could add an additional £1.3 billion to the economy each year and Dundee United said they were taking part in the programme to make football “available for all”.
