XR Central & GIGABYTE Come Together to Launch IPL Metaverse


  • XR Central has partnered with Taiwanese PC Giant GIGABYTE for IPL metaverse debut.
  • The digital-access-only fan zone will be created exclusively for XR veterans and newcomers.
  • The partnership will put esports and metaverse under one roof.

XR Central is joining forces with Taiwanese computer hardware giant GIGABYTE and Lucknow Super Giants to form a unique, digital-access-only fan zone which will hook XR veterans and newcomers in a similar way. Undeniably, this move will bring together esports and the evolving metaverse.

Just like a real cricket stadium, this virtual revolutionary experience will also have a distinctive curved facade to the spiral walkway at the front. Specially designed panels along the stadium’s internal walls, covered in lively custom artwork will display the zeal and enthusiasm of Lucknow via musicians, dancers and other certain details.

Visitors will get an exciting opportunity to meet their favorite players virtually in a meet-and-greet session. Moreover, by competing in a PC assembly game, they will be able to win a real-life GIGABYTE PC. Not just this, but they will be able to explore featured GIGABYTE devices and that too in an aesthetically appealing product lounge.

GIGABYTE INDIA’S Director, Sunil Grewal said:

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.

XR Central’s Founder, Anshul Agarwal said:

We are extremely proud to be creating history by being one of the first to debut Cricket Fan Zone in the Metaverse with a fabulous immersive experience which is multiplayer and running on a web browser. We are extremely grateful to GIGABYTE and Lucknow Super Giants for trusting us with the opportunity. This is just the start and we are confident that our platform MetaQube will democratize the way Metaverses have been thought about.

Users will have the freedom to name as well as customize their avatars, thanks to a wide range of selections ranging from clothing to hair, skin color, headgear and eyewear. Furthermore, visitors will have the right to select avatars, switch between first person and third person views. They will also be able to communicate with family and friends in the virtual confines of the metaverse cricket stadium.

The metaverse event can be attended for free by everyone from visitors to their family and friends. Also, it accommodates various devices and browsers, including mobiles and tablets.
