Sport gets up close and personal

Andres Iniesta and Serge Ibaka endorse cutting edge technology

Since Serge Ibaka (NBA Oklahoma City Thunder) and Andres Iniesta (Barcelona FC) became partner investors in Spanish company FirstV1sion 300 fans have followed suit in investing in the company through an e​quity crowd funding campaign on

Fans who attended last weeks game between Zalgiris Kaunas and Real Madrid were able to watch the game for the first time from a player’s point of view thanks to a revolutionary piece of body kit. 

A 99-83 defeat by Real Madrid in Euroleague’s second group stage was most definitely the talking point for many of the fans and players. Zalgiris Kaunas were happy to endorse such innovation and decided to be the first international team to test the kit out.

The basketball players were given the opportunity to wear a smart wearable broadcasting vest (developed by Spanish company FirstV1sion) with in built cameras installed to give the audience an immersive experience.

Spanish company FirstV1sion are planning to bring innovative change for basketball fans as technology as such has never been used on a basketball court.

“It would be very good for fans or even basketball players to see what’s happening inside the game,” said E​dwin Jackson of F​C Barcelona Basquet of the Liga ACB.

Founders of FirstV1sion, Jose Ildefonso and Roger Antunez, firmly believe that what they have developed could immerse basketball and football fans deeper into the game just as in the cockpit of a F1 driver.

Over 300 investors and sports fans have invested so far in the Spanish company FirstV1sion through the e​quity crowd funding platform​ where they can join top sports legends such as Andres Iniesta and Serge Ibaka in becoming an investor in the company.
