Rezzil, a virtual reality training provider, has announced the debut of ‘Rezzil Player 21’, its home consumer version. Available on Valve Index and HTC Vive, the firm has created Rezzil Player 21 with its virtual reality simulation technology, which helps train professional football club players worldwide.
Vincent Kompany, the Anderlecht player-manager and a former Manchester City player, has backed the Rezzil Player 21 along with other ex-football professionals. The system puts users in the elite players’ football boots with ‘actual’ drills and challenges created in conjunction with physiotherapists and sports coaches.
Sharpen their skills
As per the company, Arsenal, PSG, and Manchester United are some of the football clubs that are using Rezzil to train both their primary and youth academy players. The firm also mentioned that the French Football Federation, the English FA, US Soccer, and many other global federations are using their training platform for the next generation of talent and also to sharpen their skills during the present pandemic.

The VR system challenges players with training drills that mirror the way professional players train in reality and allows people to interact with a digital ball. Rezzil Player 21 assesses players’ shooting capabilities and movement patterns to build a range of detailed data points and stats from a training session.
