To amplify women’s rugby in New Zealand during the Rugby World Cup, Mastercard and its agency partner Octagon created the first-ever sonic trophy, a memento of the women’s game that would live on as a celebration of the event for players, future generations and Māori culture as a whole.
The collection of audio tracks encapsulated a living story—the emotions, passionate fans and community recordings themed around each Player of the Match. More than 2,000 minutes of gameplay were captured across six weeks, edited into soundtracks and embedded into 26 trophies, which were then awarded to the Players of the Match after the games’ final whistle.
