This webinar invites experts to provide their view on the future of how we watch and play sports.
Sports grounds, centres and stadiums have long been enablers of an area’s regeneration and provide a pivotal place for communities to come together to play or watch. In a time where we are unable to gather physically and where the virtual world of gaming is becoming the widespread means of engaging with sports, it is uncertain what these spaces might look like in the future. The goal posts are changing.
This webinar invites experts to provide their view on the future of how we watch and play sports. How will stadiums have to adapt to enable social distancing? How can we create spaces that allow us to come together physically even when playing sports digitally? How do we ensure the spaces we build now are resilient and flexible enough to cope with changing behaviours in the future?
