Sports simulator at 53 West 53rd (DBOX) Sports simulator at 53 West 53rd (DBOX)
Sunday, November 20 marks the first day of the 2022 FIFA Men's World Cup in Qatar. While this year's event has attracted considerable controversy seemingly from the time it was announced, that may not be enough to deter diehard fans who are ready to watch at all hours of the day.

New York is a global city that attracts soccer fans from all over the world, but the sport enjoys considerable popularity among locals as well. The New York City Football Club was founded in May 2013; nearly 10 years and several games in Yankee Stadium later, it was announced that the Willets Point development will include a professional soccer stadium, the first in New York City. Completion is estimated for 2027; in other words, too late for the 2026 FIFA World Cup with host cities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. However, the New York City area will not be left out — the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ will be among the host cities.
For those who'd rather play than watch, it's getting a little cold to kick a ball around outside, and soccer fields aren't among the most in-demand amenities at residential buildings. However, sports simulators and virtual game rooms may be the next best thing. Technology has come a long way from the golf simulators that originally proved popular in residential buildings, and these aren't just for golfers anymore. Today's state-of-the-art simulators offer every sport one can imagine, and even some one can't (zombie dodgeball, anyone?).

Below, we take a look at buildings that count sports simulators among their amenities. More often than not, these simulators are located near lounges where residents can kick back with a beer after playing, whether a craft brew or a Budweiser.
