The National Football League and StatusPRO, a sports technology and gaming company that uses real-time player data to create authentic extended reality experiences, announced a partnership for an NFL-licensed virtual reality simulation game. Available on Meta Quest and PlayStation VR, this title will bring fans closer to the gridiron than ever, allowing them to play like a professional football player through a first-person, 3D-immersive experience. 

“Virtual reality gaming is rapidly expanding and our partnership with StatusPRO allows us to explore a new immersive version of NFL gaming with support of the two largest VR platforms within this emerging space,” says Joe Ruggiero, senior vice president, consumer products, NFL. “We are seeing a growing number of fans engaging with VR and we’re excited to launch the first-ever VR gaming title that complements our existing offerings in the market today.” 

“Today marks an important milestone for StatusPRO and the VR industry,” says Troy Jones, co-founder

and chief executive officer, StatusPRO. “By partnering with the NFL, we will offer a new form of engagement between athletes and fans unlike anything in the marketplace. NFL football fans and gamers alike will be able to connect with the world of sports through authentic, immersive gaming products that democratize the experience of the professional athlete.” 

The NFL and StatusPRO will leverage StatusPRO’s athlete-led technology and work alongside their experienced team of developers to change sports gaming as fans get a first-person experience like their favorite football players.
