Ballerz Dome Launches

Ballerz has been created by Rio Ferdinand, Bobby Zamora, Roberto Carlos and Mark Noble, alongside a team of sport and hospitality industry specialists.

The 30,000sq ft football dome is home to an immersive football experience and 6-a-side stadium-style 5G pitch loaded with tech, including instant goal replays, together with pro changing rooms, stadium-style seating and a players’ tunnel.

Rio Ferdinand said: “We’re giving the beautiful game a makeover, with a stunning pitch and unique touches that’ll create an electric atmosphere – including big screen replays, crowd noise and all your best match highlights ready to share. Ballerz is designed to make every player feel like a star.

“The immersive tech in our Skillzone will challenge players to seven specially developed football fitness games that test your technical, physical and mental skill. It’ll all be tracked with your QR wristband – so you can focus on achieving your personal best and see if you beat the scores of the Ballerz football legends. There’s also The Heineken Lounge, Ballerz Café and gaming lounge, so visitors can fuel up, wind down and enjoy the ultimate football experience.”

James Waugh, Centre Director at Bluewater, said: “We have had months of anticipation since the announcement of the Ballerz dome last December. Our guests are excited by the addition of Ballerz’s unique concept to our leisure offering here at Bluewater and we know they’ll be thrilled to be able to book their own time on the pitch. We are honoured to be home to the first Ballerz location globally, marking another milestone in our 25th anniversary year.”
