Cricket Ireland Seals Expanded Data Partnership with CricHQ

April 23, 2013

CricHQ and Cricket Ireland have expanded their partnership that will see every ball of the 2013 Irish International season covered via the CricHQ software.

The product will be used right across the Cricket Ireland fixture calendar in 2013 with all Ireland Men’s and Women’s matches as well as Ireland’s Under 19, denture Under 17 and Under 15 international home matches being live scored.

Fans and players are able to follow the game closer than ever before and enjoy a level of statistical information, doctor live matches, rx online profiles and media content previously unavailable.

The CricHQ app has been developed in New Zealand and is backed by a number of high-profile investors including England off-spinner Graeme Swann and ex-New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming. In addition to Cricket Ireland, other governing bodies who are partnering with CricHQ include the International Cricket Council, New Zealand Cricket, Cricket Canada, and a number of First Class counties in England.

Andrew Leonard, Marketing Manager from Cricket Ireland said: “We’re delighted that our partnership is being strengthened and with 2013 set to be arguably the most exciting home season in our history the timing couldn’t be any better. The CricHQ product is developing very quickly indeed and the new Competition Management Solution is a particularly strong development, not just for the RSA Inter-Provincial Series but for all our tournaments and series this summer.” 

Rob Lynch, CricHQ’s Europe manager said: “We are delighted to have strengthened our partnership with Cricket Ireland. Our aim is to work closely with the Irish cricket community to showcase the benefits of using our products and what is possible by adopting today’s technology. Irish cricket continues to perform exceptionally on the international stage and we hope that our partnership with Cricket Ireland will help to continue to not only spread the good word about the sport in Ireland and around the world but also to inspire the next generation of Kevin O’Briens and William Porterfields.”
