With the aid of a headset and earphones, the content puts fans in the players’ shoes and gives a unique insight into the team’s inner sanctum.

The platform, which is an elite level tool used by professional footballers, will put fans in the shoes of an LFC player and give them the rush of scoring in front of the Kop.
