In a bid to maximise the potential of online fan engagement experiences Gigabyte Technology and its gaming brand ‘Aorus’ the associate sponsor of Lucknow Super Giants have launched the team’s metaverse. This move will help the team and fans get even closer.
This platform will serve as a one-of-a-kind experience for the fans who especially this time around can’t visit the stadium due to the fact that the entire IPL group stage is being hosted in Maharashtra. The experience features a virtual creation of the Cricket Sports Stadium, from its distinctive curved facade to the spiral walkway at the front. Also featured are exclusively designed panels along the stadium’s internal walls, where visitors to the experience can view player stats and try on their jerseys. The external walls of the stadium are covered in vibrant custom artwork evoking the unique spirit of Lucknow through dancers, musicians and place-specific details.
The visitors will have the opportunity to meet their cricketing idols in a meet-and-greet in this virtual world, and additionally, have a chance to win a real-life Gigabyte PC by competing in a PC assembly game.
