John Terry launches VR Football Academy

Chelsea footballer John Terry has launched a Virtual Reality Football Academy, which provides users with an immersive one-on-one training experience and behind-the-scenes access to one of the most successful players in the modern era.

The former England captain has partnered with infinite360 to create the mobile application, which utilises photorealistic CGI and specialist 360° video to immerse fans in personalised football and performance tuition sessions both on and off the pitch.

The experience includes an extensive library of lifestyle, nutrition and motivational sessions, with new training videos added every six weeks.

“I’m incredibly excited to announce the launch of the JT Academy”, said Terry. “Virtual Reality is without doubt fast becoming the future and the academy gives users the opportunity to experience and learn the skills required to make it as a professional sportsperson; both mentally and physically, as well as a behind the scenes insight into my own life and career experiences. It is the first of its kind and this is just the beginning.”
