Interact with the game

The journey of this exceptional experience began with a relatable need shared by every fan: the desire to know more about a player. By simply pointing their phones at the pitch from any spot in the stadium, users could click on a player and instantly access FIFA’s live analysis of his performance.

Live AR analysis

To further enrich the fan experience, real-time insights were overlaid directly on top of the on-field actions. Thanks to ultra-live data feeds and next-gen metrics provided by FIFA’s analyst team, fans had access to cutting-edge information right as the game unfolded.

Machine Learning

The magic behind these mind-blowing features was Immersiv.io’s machine learning proprietary pitch recognition system.
