How to connect your club website to ECB Play-Cricket

One of the benefits for cricket clubs on Pitchero is our official integration with the ECB’s Play-cricket.com site.

It means that those of you managing club websites don’t have to enter league details manually all over again on Pitchero.

Speaking about the integration, Pitchero CEO Mark Fletcher said:

"The Play-Cricket integration is increasingly popular with Pitchero clubs as it allows them to save valuable time. Over 1000 more teams have connected to Play-Cricket competitions this year compared to 2020- cricket is back with a bang!"

Our comprehensive league database has thousands of competitions and so multiple teams are able to keep accurate, consistent records, saving hours of time in the process.

Any data added to or updated on Play-Cricket.com will automatically appear on your Pitchero website within 24 hours. 

This comes directly from your cricket league’s Play-Cricket website.

Powered by a third-party API, Pitchero receives:

  • League fixtures
  • League results
  • League tables
  • Match scorecards

As part of this integration, we don’t receive cup matches or friendlies so these will have to be entered manually.

In addition to this league data, Webmasters and Team Admins should continue to add extra fixture information such as team selections, previews, match reports and photos/video.

All you have to do is to connect your cricket team to the right league competition in the Club Control Panel.

  • Access the 'Teams' section of the Club Control Panel
  • Pick the team you wish to link up to a competition and then select 'Competitions'
  • Click the 'Join Competition' button
  • In the overlay, locate the division in the ones recommended and then select 'Join this competition'.
