As the Indian Premier League fever is taking the cricket crazy nation in its grip, all cricket lovers have an opportunity to test their knowledge and expertise on the game with the chance to win­ lucrative prizes, including an all-expenses paid trip to Sydney. Sports gamification app SportsHero will make it happen.

SportsHero App, a commercial venture that aims at taking fans experience into their digital worlds, beyond the stadium and television, has been launched in India.

The app, featuring cricket and football, requires a decent degree of knowledge and skill. “It’s unlike anything else on the market. To rank highly on SportsHero you need to combine genuine knowledge, skill, and analysis of the game along with a passion for the sport. Our users are constantly up-skilling by reading news, pre-game reports and post-game analysis, and pulling it apart with friends and family to make highly-skilled predictions. There is a real sense of reward in being a successful SportsHero user and we are excited to share this experience with Indian sports fans,” SportsHero Chief Executive Tom Lapping said at the launch of the App, which brings fans together virtually to compete and test their knowledge while predicting the results of the games.

Cricket world’s biggest commercials event IPL is also included to the App platform.

SportsHero is offering its global community of sports fans the world over an opportunity to win daily, weekly and monthly prizes. “Across the globe, our users are passionate sports fans that have an innate desire to be closely connected to the games. India is a dynamic market with a huge love of cricket coupled with astounding mobile and social media consumption, making it an incredibly exciting market for us,” added Lapping.

Former Australian Cricket captain and one of the most respected cricket analysts Ian Chappell is the global brand ambassador for the App. “Throughout my career, I have experienced first-hand the unbelievably strong passion India has for cricket. The IPL has been built on this love of the game and it has naturally sparked robust discussion, debate and predicted results amongst fans. SportsHero takes that culture to another level by connecting users with like-minded fans around the world and intensifying the competitive nature of the game with digital recognition and reward. The app allows users to get deeply involved in the analytical side of the game and make better predictions by harnessing the power of the other sports fans in its social community,” said Chappell.

The knowledgeable predictors also stand chance to win weekly and the grand prizes, which includes an all-expenses paid trip to Sydney with the former Australian captain Ian Chappell.

The app is available for free for the iOS and Android users.
