No fans? No problem.
The WWE and The Famous Group have created the virtual fan solution that brings the energy of live fans back during the pandemic. Welcome to Thunderdome.
This is like the NBA sideline fans, but raised to the extreme.
The Famous Group didn’t stop there, now they are finding new uses for the technology. For the USTA Tennis events they have connected players live to their families watching at home, putting friends and family back courtside. Post-match the winners are conversing with family in a way otherwise not possible during the pandemic.
Check out our interview with Andrew Isaacson from the Famous Group. Andrew shares the process of creating and installing Thunderdome. How the pandemic forced them to find a creative solution, and how they continue to innovate with the new tool.
This virtual fan is likely here to stay, with great sponsorship potential, virtual seating, fan engagement and exclusive access that wasn’t possible just six months ago.
