Two exciting games at the Chevrolet Pavilion Passabilities and Colorado Co-driver kept the visiting guests engaged through-out.
Passabilities is an exciting game for football lovers that will allow them to don a Manchester United jersey and “play” in a match that will be captured using a custom-designed app. They will be provided a short film of themselves passing the ball to and from members of the team to share with their friends. Each pass goes towards a worthy goal where Chevrolet and One World Play Project will donate 2 million footballs, impacting 60 million kids in over 90 countries across the globe.
