First Norilsk phygital sports championship made even adults nervous

November 07, 2023

Students played virtual and real football with schoolchildren.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. At the site of the Norilsk College of Industrial Technologies and Services, the city’s first matches in the digital space between schoolchildren and students were held, which were then consolidated with real mini-football meetings in the gym.

The term “phygital” refers to the combination of digital and physical experiences, including augmented and virtual reality. In our case, this is playing football with joysticks on the screen, and then an additional match on the court.

The technical school not only develops the phygital movement in Norilsk, but also holds competitions on high-tech devices: drones, robots.

The past competitions allowed participants to first compete in the popular computer game in the FIFA football simulator genre, play in the gym, and then try themselves in other activities – DOTA, Tetris, Mario, and drone racing. These computer games were proposed by the competition organizers with other gamers generations in mind, including the oldest ones, who still remember getting stuck to Tetris.

The winner of the competition was the site hosts – the team from the College of Industrial Technologies.
