The tour is the first virtual reality experience of its kind for any New Zealand sports team, offering viewers a front row seat at a Blues team talk and training session, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at their Auckland training facilities.

Blues Chief Executive Officer Michael Redman said the initiative played a key role in helping foster the next generation of rugby talent.

"If we could, we'd love to give every fan the chance to sit in on a training session," Redman said. "This is the next best thing – which is why we jumped at the chance to be involved."

Tonight saw the first fans in the country take the virtual reality tour, as part of an ultimate 'at-home' stadium experience to watch the Blues take on the Highlanders.
