Jugo, the global leader in immersive virtual experiences, today announces a new global partnership with Arsenal Football Club creating new and exciting ways for supporters to engage with us, and bring them closer to the players and the sport they love in a dynamic 3D environment.
While Emirates Stadium continues to attract a vociferous crowd on matchdays, many supporters worldwide can’t attend matches and instead interact with the club digitally. The partnership between us and Jugo will offer brand-new virtual experiences that will boost engagement for global supporters.
Jugo’s platform will give supporters the chance to enjoy a variety of events including, memorabilia auctions, Q&A sessions, interactive screenings and opportunities to meet players virtually. Jugo will bring the power of human interaction into each of these events, creating realistic virtual connections between supporters and the club.
Joseph Toma, CEO of Jugo, says: “Jugo is bringing people closer and revolutionizing the way in which leading sports teams are engaging with their global fan base. Jugo will help Arsenal connect with global supporters by offering next-gen, immersive, digital, and player engagement events. When people feel purposeful and connected, anything is possible.”
Juliet Slot, our Chief Commercial Officer, added: “We’re delighted to announce Jugo as our official digital events partner. By using Jugo’s cutting-edge technology, we can now offer unrivalled supporter engagement experiences, globally.
"Our relationship with supporters is at the heart of everything we do, and Jugo will allow us to further connect with our Arsenal family across the world.”
