SPORTAL | NFL is a theoretical virtual reality application that allows fans to attend the game from anywhere. Unlike competitors that only offer a select few games each season, SPORTAL | NFL would bring you every home game live in VR. Fans can pay to watch games individually or they can buy a Season Pass; a subscription service that allows fans to watch every game offered on Sportal|NFL. The end goal is to allow fans to virtually attend any game of any sport live.

Behind The Logo

The Sportal logo is designed to invoke a sporty feeling while simultaneously feeling both modern and technological. The portal forms the ‘o’ in the Sportal logotype, clearly referencing the naming of the app: sports + portal. The divider between the Sportal logotype and the NFL logo allows the main logotype to be reused for future apps with the logos of other sports leagues. The final logo has two variants, one for light backgrounds and one for dark backgrounds.
