ICC launches official event site for ICC Champions Trophy 2013

MUMBAI: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has launched the official event site for ICC Champions Trophy, which will be staged in England and Wales between 6 and 23 June 2013.

Containing all the latest information on the tournament, the site, accessible from on any device, will be an essential resource for supporters wishing to follow the event.

The site will have short form match highlights from all matches in the tournament as well as exclusive behind the scenes content with all the teams and leading players, as well as special pieces around the event.

The official match centre will be one of the most informative and interactive to date, allowing fans to follow live ball-by-ball coverage, including an exclusive interactive video scorecard, of all warm-up and event matches. Fans will also get a chance to use the integrated Reliance Rankings predictor along with an opportunity to post comments using their social media accounts. Containing exclusive event features, supporters will also be able to catch the latest event news, and there will be profiles on all of the tournament participants.

A new feature of the site will allow fans to enter the ‘Hot or Not’ contest to choose the ‘hottest’ moment in ODI cricket from among a selection of the 50 best moments in the format. The supporters of the game will receive an opportunity to pick, for example, whether Sachin Tendulkar of India’s double hundred in February 2010 against South Africa in an ODI is hotter than Javed Miandad’s last ball six to seal Pakistan’s famous win against India at Sharjah in 1986.

The site has been developed by global digital media company, Pulse Innovations. Pulse specialises in the sports sector, providing Sports Federations and Media Publishers with a turn-key solution in the capture and delivery of sports content across internet-enabled devices.

ICC GM commercial Campbell Jamieson said, “The ICC Champions Trophy 2013 website will allow fans to connect with the official voice of the tournament with a number of exclusive behind the scenes content from across the tournament in all variety of formats, be it video, photo or text.

“The concept of the ICC Champions Trophy is of course the best versus best in the ODI format and this seems an ideal time for us to have launched the opportunity for fans to pick their best moment in the ODI format.”

Pulse Innovations MD Wyndham Richardson said, “The ICC Champions Trophy 2013 is yet another example of our continuing effort to deliver best-in-class sports websites.

“We’ve focused on building a destination that will bring cricket fans closer to the event than ever before, from social initiatives in partnership with Twitter, to real-time Hawk-Eye data-visualisation. It is a proud moment for us to be associated with the world governing body of the sport, the International Cricket Council.”

The ICC will be releasing information on its other digital and social media activations in due course.
