Presenting viewers with access to exclusive footage and detailed play-by-play of the action on the School Big Match field, Dialog Axiata PLC enabled the sport’s enthusiasts with the option to choose from four different camera angles while watching the Metaverse live-stream of School Big Matches in its Futureverse.
Introducing Sri Lanka’s First Metaverse Sporting Event, Dialog’s Futureverse revolutionized the way Sri Lankans experience sports action, as it creates a convenient and immersive experience for users to watch their favourite sports at their convenience and comfort. With no prior registration or tickets required, those who streamed the Big Matches via the Futureverse could zoom in and catch the moments missed by the naked eye with multiple viewpoints via four different camera angles, including 'Main View', 'Ground View', '3rd Umpire View' along with an exclusive 'Behind the Scenes View' of the matches. This also marked the first time in Sri Lanka that selected school’s big matches were live-streamed in the Metaverse with the 46th One Day Encounter between Royal College and S. Thomas' College, St. Joseph’s vs St. Peter’s Test Encounter and One Day Encounter making their Futureverse debuts.
The annual big matches played between rival school cricket teams in major cities around Sri Lanka are backed by a rich cricketing history and have a pattern of producing top, world-class cricket players for the Sri Lanka national cricket team. Dialog is committed to introducing new dimensions to experiencing sports by combining the thrill of celebrated sports events with cutting-edge technology, thereby presenting Futureverse visitors with a one-of-a-kind experience.
