InCrowd and the International Cricket Council (ICC) are delighted to announce the launch of the new Official ICC FanScore Champions Trophy app.
The app, which is available to download on both iOS and Android allows fans to play for their country through a series of cricket predictors and will run throughout the ICC Champions Trophy, held in England and Wales from 1-18 June.
ICC FanScore Champions Trophy utilises a series of easy-to-play predictor games and polls, giving cricket fans the chance to add some extra spice to the tournament by challenging their friends, competing against other fans, representing their nation and winning some fantastic money-can’t-buy prizes.
ICC FanScore Champions Trophy allows users to vote for their MRF Tyres Fans’ Player of the Match as well being able to predict on multiple events within a match such as:
- Match Winner
- Number of Runs in 1st Innings
- Highest Run Scorer
- Best Bowler
Prizes will be awarded to the best performing fans on multiple occasions throughout the tournament.
FanScore’s integrated push notification system will give the ICC a new data-driven and highly targeted channel to communicate to their fans on a regular basis during the competition.
Aarti Singh Dabas, Head of Media Rights, Broadcast & Digital at International Cricket Council said:
“On behalf of the ICC, I welcome InCrowd to the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The Official ICC FanScore Champions Trophy app is a fantastic way to enable cricket fans across the globe to engage with the action on the pitch by predicting the outcomes of each match. It will be fascinating to see which nation’s fans emerge victorious come June 18th and which fan will be the overall ICC FanScore Champions Trophy winner.”
“The decision to work with InCrowd is testament to the innovative work they are doing in mobile fan engagement. The app provides a perfect companion for both the casual fan and the partisan supporter alike. May the best fans win!”
Aidan Cooney, CEO of InCrowd said: “It is a huge honour to be working with the ICC on such a prestigious tournament as the ICC Champions Trophy. We are excited at the prospect of giving cricket fans the world over the chance to participate in the action using the FanScore engagement platform. With so many people watching the tournament worldwide it is a great platform for FanScore to give the supporters something extra to look forward to during the competition.”
