On December 10 of 2016, Toronto FC played against Seattle Sounders for the finals of the 2016 MLS Cup in a match that concluded with a goal-less scoreboard as neither teams were able to score a single goal throughout the entirety of the game and the winner had to be decided through a penalty session.
Seattle Sounders was the side that emerged victorious after what was an intense and dramatic penalty kick-off and Brian Schmetzer along with his squad marked their name in the history-books of the MLS outfit as they had never been able to lift the MLS Cup before, this is and was their very 1st MLS Cup that the American club has lifted.
It was and continues to be a historic date for Seattle Sounders and the MLS club has recently unveiled a way for supporters of the club and for anyone at all to kind off experience what it’s like to see them fulfilling this memorable accomplishment.
A few months ago it was announced that the MLS side Seattle Sounders had partnered up with a Seattle technology software startup called: Pixvana as they wanted to take a step closer towards the world of virtual reality.
“Virtual reality has opened up an entirely new way to experience sports and we’re thrilled to be able to share this unique view of the historic 2016 season. We have enjoyed working with Pixvana and Intentional Futures in the continuing pursuit of providing our fans with some of the most memorable match day experiences in the league.” The chief operating officer of Seattle Sounders Bart Wiley said.
Pixvana released a 360 degree video which incorporates footage from 5 matches of Seattle Sounders as well as never before seen moments of players training as well as celebrating after emerging as victorious.
