Cricket Yorkshire is excited to partner with FrogBox, the cricket live-streaming solution offering professional broadcasting to any cricket club.
Cricket clubs can now stream matches in real-time to YouTube, offer highlights clips on social media and promote sponsors to a global audience.
FrogBox is the exclusive streaming platform to integrate with Play-Cricket Scorer and Play-Cricket Live.
That means clubs can score live, stream the match and overlay the scores on top, just like an England Test match on Sky Sports.
Create talking points every single week, build a bigger audience and give another strong reason for new members to join your club.
What is FrogBox?
Broadcast live club cricket matches for the world to see.
A club cricket live stream is easy to set up in minutes with a FrogBox streaming kit. It is portable, battery-powered and fully automated – so you can just let it run.
It includes: a Panasonic camcorder, 4.5m mast, automated video encoder with 4G, rechargeable battery for 20 hours’ capture and secure carry case for cables and mast bags.
Incredible quality footage and audio mean cricket clubs have visual assets ready to use that will catch the attention.
Why invest in a FrogBox streaming kit?
Asif Ali’s six that shattered his own car windscreen became a viral hit, attracting the world’s media after a FrogBox live stream from Illingworth St Mary’s Cricket Club.
Funny, poignant or unbelievable moments happen all the time in club cricket and they are powerful tools to promote your club and attract commercial partners.
Luke Brooksby not only racked up 1.6 million page views in a less than a year for the Halifax Cricket League outfit but club cricket live streaming has brought them new sponsors too.
The good news is that a FrogBox streaming kit can pay for itself. Cricket clubs can sign live streaming partners with guaranteed exposure throughout the season.
It’s another opportunity to sell or alternatively, a new offering for existing sponsors to encourage them to renew.
On top of that, national news organisations and cricket media outlets are always looking for stories. Video clips of games are perfect content so your club could get a publicity turbo-charge.
Champion your club sponsors
With the FrogBox Live on-screen graphics, cricket clubs can promote sponsors in a number of ways during a match being streamed.
There are four positions for club logo/club sponsor including:
- Top-right square logo
- Bottom scorebar home and away team logos
- Sponsor boards during breaks and in play
- Popups after end of overs
How to set up FrogBox?
Anyone can quickly learn how to use FrogBox at a cricket club. It’s a product that’s been designed with time-strapped volunteers in mind.
You don’t need to be an expert in video production. This short video below explains the streaming kit components included and how to get started.
How much does FrogBox cost?
There are two parts to buying FrogBox for your cricket club – and the prices have been dropped for the 2022 season!
- Streaming kit (£1,150) which includes a FrogBox camera, mast, rechargeable battery and carry case/cables.
- Streaming licence (£250 per year) – live streaming all matches, automated on-screen graphics, automated match highlights, integration with scoring apps.
It provides everything you need to offer your members and supporters a professional live streaming experience every week.
Yes, you could set up your own video camera but is the quality going to be good enough? Who wants to be the one to edit 8 hours of footage into bite-sized clips?
Do you get automated on-screen graphic overlays powered by your scorer? Similarly, will you get automated match highlights directly to your Play-Cricket scorecard?
Plus, no publicity for sponsors and you’d miss out on FrogBox integration with Play-Cricket scoring apps.
FrogBox does it all and enables clubs to broadcast matches across age groups on different pitches or separate locations altogether.
