HSBC unveiled today a series of virtual rugby quests in The Sandbox, to present an immersive and unique experience of the sport in the metaverse. The campaign coincides with the much-anticipated return of the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens from 4 to 6 November following the tournament’s three year-long hiatus.

In March 2022, HSBC became the first global bank to acquire a plot of LAND in The Sandbox, equivalent to acquiring virtual real estate in the metaverse. To celebrate the highly anticipated return of the Hong Kong Sevens, HSBC will be staging a virtual stadium in The Sandbox from 24 October to 14 November to activate its first community initiative there.

The public will be able to immerse themselves in rugby through six exciting quests that will take place in different locations around the stadium, comprising action-packed challenges, engaging mini games and educational quizzes related to the sport.

See you on October 24th in The Sandbox!
