The inaugural virtual matchday will take place for the Eagles’ first home game of the restart: Palace v Burnley tonight (Monday, 29th June).
Supporters will be able to arrange and enjoy private video calls with friends and family, tune-in to an exclusive hour-long pre-match show from Selhurst Park to watch warm-ups and more, and even listen to audio commentary of the match if they wish to do so.
All users can customise their own experience – turning audio commentary or the pre-match show on or off as required. Additional options such as enabling supporters to record their group video call to clip up goal celebrations and reactions are also planned developments.
The experience is completely free and easy to set-up your private room with friends – and you can do so whenever you want this evening – before, during and after the match.
