Overview

We are very pleased to confirm an official integration with the ECB's Play-Cricket.com and FixturesLive.

This saves club volunteers hours each week from entering match information on two separate systems.

If your league competition isn't available via an API integration, you can manage your fixtures in our Competitions Database or your club control panel.

The league competition is powered by the ECB's Play-Cricket.com

Pitchero has an official integration with the ECB's Play-Cricket.com. As part of the integration, Pitchero receives the following data:

  • League fixtures (fixture date, home and away team names, start time)
  • League results
  • League tables
  • Match scorecards

This information can only be entered or updated via the ECB's Play-Cricket.com website.

Data entered or updated on the ECB's Play-Cricket.com is synced with the Pitchero platform within 24 hours automatically.

Please note:

The data is pulled from the league's ECB's Play-Cricket.com website, not the club's or county's

We do not receive any cup or friendly fixtures as part of the integration

Match scorecards show on individual fixture pages, but do not show the team's Stats page.

The club should continue entering the following information on a fixture in Pitchero:
