Mumbai: Gigabyte Technology and its gaming brand ‘Aorus’ the associate sponsor of Lucknow Super Giants have launched the team’s metaverse. It is the first of its kind for sports in India that will help the team and fans to get closer.

This created 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 cherry on the top will be visitors will have a unique opportunity to be one of the lucky few people who will get to make metaverse history and meet their cricketing idols in an exclusive 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. They can also explore featured Gigabyte devices in a beautiful product lounge.

Gigabyte India Director Sunil Grewal said that everyone at Gigabyte has been looking forward to this launch, which will serve as a great experience for the fans. “We at Gigabyte are very excited about the Metaverse project in partnership with Lucknow Super Giants and XRC. We will be bringing to fans an immersive experience that will enthrall them for sure. At Gigabyte, we strive to make our community experience future ready/world-class products. And, this will be a perfect opportunity for them to know more about our brand and products”.
