Fans are invited to watch the new virtual reality platform.
For the first time ever, the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 can be experienced through the power of Virtual Reality using technology that will let you watch the Opening and Closing ceremony in 360°, making it seem like you are part of the celebrations.
To make this happen, the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has partnered with the CreatorUp to develop a 360° VR experience. Also releasing today is UAE Now, part of a 3-part pre-Games film series that focuses on the story of how the UAE is gearing up to host the largest sports and humanitarian event of the year.
Also following the release of UAE Now is 50 years of Special Olympics that chronicles the story and impact of the Special Olympics since 1968 along with Athletes at Home, which will show the stories of athletes and their families and how they’re determined to fight the stereotypes that come with disabled athletes.
Hosted by influencer Max of Arabia, a live daily one-hour show will also be broadcast on YouTube that will air all throughout the Games at 6-7 pm.
The UAE will officially host the Special Olympics on March 14th-21st across Abu Dhabi and Dubai that will include more than 7,500 athletes from over 190 nations.
