VR Football
The Fox Sports mobile app plans to offer football fans a near real-time virtual reality experience for the Super Bowl. Users will be able to don a headset to experience game highlights and certain aspects of being in the stadium during the game.

It's almost impossible to score Super Bowl tickets. Unless you're willing to sacrifice your first born or shell out thousands of dollars, you're out of luck. Though most people prefer to watch the game from the comfort of their own home, FOX Sports, a mobile app, wants to take it a step further. The app actually wants to put you inside the stadium via virtual reality.

FOX Sports will be broadcasting Super Bowl highlights in near real-time. All you have to do is strap the mobile headset to your face, fire up the app, and experience a handful of select clips from various angles. Whether it's down on the field or up in one of those special boxes, you'll be able to see it all. Unfortunately, you can't watch an entire game in virtual reality just yet. A girl can dream, right?

You can download the free app on iOS, Android, and Gear VR. It works with both Gear VR and Cardboard. Just download the app and drop your phone in your mobile headset. The Super Bowl starts at 6:30 pm EST on Sunday, February 5th. Don't miss it!
