Wiltshire Cricket and NV Play enter broad ranging Live Streaming and Technology Partnership

NV Play are pleased to announce a new three-year partnership with Wiltshire Cricket to become Wiltshire Cricket’s official Technology Partner and Preferred Live Streaming Provider.

This new partnership will enable matchday live streams for Wiltshire CCC's Men’s and Women’s NCCA teams, bringing Wiltshire Cricket supporters even closer to the action, whilst also promoting video analysis capabilities throughout the pathway to capture, share and analyse data to enhance players‘ understanding of performance.

NV Play’s award-winning cricket technology has been helping deliver the game at the highest levels for over 15 years.  We are proud to deliver ECB’s Play-Cricket Scorer Pro (PCS Pro) platform that helps drive high-end recreational and professional cricket across England and Wales, and is used by thousands of clubs & teams to capture tens of thousands of matches across the globe.

As part of the partnership, NV Play will be Wiltshire Cricket’s Preferred Live Streaming Provider. This means Wiltshire will be investing in fully maximising use of NV Play’s best-in-class video analysis tools, whilst supporting Clubs across the County to embrace Live Streaming using PCS Pro and NV Play.

The 2022 season will see Wiltshire Cricket launch its new Live Streaming and Video Highlights service through the use of NV Play's Live Streaming for PCS Pro, helping further showcase the game across the County.

“NV Play's comprehensive Video Analysis and Live Streaming  capabilities are built to not only accommodate the professional level of the game, but also enhance the visibility and performance of recreational clubs in Wiltshire - particulalrly in the ECB West of England Premier League (WEPL).

For us, this is an exciting opportunity to democratise access to these elite tools and allow amatuer clubs to gain a performance advantage without the need for dedicated resources.”

Neil Fairbairn
Commercial Manager, NV Play

“As a County, we plan to use the NV Play platform to its full capacity. It will provide matchday live steaming for online viewing, and be a fantastic tool for player development, enabling the Wiltshire Coaches to analyse and coach in greater detail after games.  Its in-game analysis software will provide insights for our players to learn and take on the information before, during and after games.

This is a level of support for our players which was only previously utilised in the professional game, so we believe it will significantly impact player development in both the amateur and NCCA game.”

Pete Sykes
Director of Cricket, Wiltshire Cricket

In addition to this, NV Play’s world leading Video Analysis and High Performance tools will be deployed across Wiltshire’s Talent Pathway Programme, and will play an important role in supporting, growing and developing the next generation of players to ensure Wiltshire's continued success.

Clubs can apply for funding to purchase the NV Play Live Streaming Camera Kits through the ECB's County Grants Fund under the Creating Welcoming Environments funding category in the Digitising section. 

Find out more about the County Grants Fund Scheme on Wiltshire's website.

Later in the year, NV Play will hold a webinar for clubs and schools across the County, offering an overview & demos of their scoring, streaming and performance analysis capabilities.  

In the meantime, scorers or a performance analysts with PCS Pro experience who are keen to support Wiltshire Cricket in deploying NV Play's platform across the Talent Pathway Programme, contact tom.morton@wiltshirecricket.co.uk to discuss opportunities to assist.

At NV Play, we're excited to kick off our relationship with Wiltshire Cricket and play a small role in growing the game experience across the County.
