Lucknow Super Giants, Gigabyte Technology launch metaverse to enhance fan engagement

The platform will provide a unique experience for LSG supporters who were unable to attend matches at the stadiums this season.

Lucknow Super Giants‘ (LSG) associate sponsor, Gigabyte Technology and its gaming label ‘AORUS,’ have initiated a metaverse to enhance the virtual fan interaction experiences of the franchise’s supporters.

This step is the first of its kind in Indian sports, and it will allow the team and supporters to get closer.

The platform will provide a unique experience for LSG supporters who were unable to attend matches at the stadiums this season. A virtual cricket stadium with a curved exterior and a corkscrew pathway at the front is featured in the experience. Exclusively created panels run the length of the stadium’s indoor walls, allowing visitors to study player statistics and try on their shirts. The stadium’s exterior walls are adorned with bright handmade artwork depicting dancers, musicians, and other place-specific characteristics to evoke the inimitable spirit of Lucknow.

Fans will also have the chance to be one of the select few who will make metaverse history by meeting their cricketing heroes at an exceptional meet-and-greet in this virtual environment, as well as compete in a PC building game for a chance at winning an actual Gigabyte PC.

“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,”  stated, Sunil Grewal, Director, Gigabyte India.

 “We are really excited about Gigabyte’s and Aorus’ metaverse project for our team’s supporters. Being our technology partners, It’s fitting that they create a tech platform providing a unique experience to engage fans and delight them. It will not only be interesting for the team’s fans but for our players as well,” said, Raghu Iyer, CEO of LSG. 

LSG have acquired the number one spot on the points table and will play against Gujarat Titans (GT) on May 10, 2022, i.e. today at 7:30 PM IST.
