The UEFA Champions League final is close at hand and you know what that means. Great football matches of teams across Europe competing against each other. Football is for those Americans, but football is for everyone else. UEFA has some great games and they’re more accessible than ever this year because you can watch straight from YouTube. What’s more, you’ll be able to watch in virtual reality if you have a YouTube-enabled VR headset. We have details for you here!

Can I watch the UEFA Champions League Final in VR?

Yes, with a few caveats. YouTube will host a virtual reality stream that you can watch while wearing headphones. It is provided, of course, that you can access YouTube whenever you need to. If you can do that, then you are amazing and all you have to do is go to the BT Sport YouTube page and upload the video you want to watch.

If you only have access to Gear VR, you’ll have to take a few extra steps, but it’s not a big deal. Namely, instead of using the YouTube app to open videos and watch matches, you will need to use Samsung Internet to open YouTube and navigate from there. With any of these options, you will be able to follow the matches and feel like you are in the middle of the action, and not just sit on the couch.

Anyone in the UK will have access to several different streams, including a 360 degree stream with a recommended minimum connection of 10Mps. You can also select a specific camera if you’re particularly interested in a specific game angle. If you are not in the UK, live streaming will not be available unless you change your location using the VPN.
