Once one of the largest international providers of banking and financial services HSBC purchased a piece of land in the metaverse of The Sandbox, the company decided to use part of the space to “build” a virtual rugby stadium.
The result of this work was the announcement of a virtual rugby tournament in the metaverse. The project was implemented in partnership with the Hong Kong company Index Game.
The companies will present an “immersive gaming experience” called The Hong Kong Sevens in honor of the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens 2022 championship, which will be held in Hong Kong from November 4 to 6. This will be a series of quests that will immerse players in the world of rugby.
“The Metaverse is how people will experience Web3, the next generation internet, using immersive technologies such as augmented reality, virtual reality and augmented reality. We see great potential at HSBC to create new experiences through new platforms that open up a world of opportunity for our current and future customers and the communities we serve,” said HSBC Asia Pacific Marketing Director Suresh Balaji.
