You can now import data directly from the England and Wales Cricket Board's (ECB) Play-Cricket platform using Spond's exclusive integration.


NOTE: This feature is only available in the UK. 🇬🇧

Key advantages of the Spond and Play-Cricket integration include:

  • Effortless Data Sharing

    • The integration provides a streamlined method for clubs to share essential information with players, coaches, and parents. This ensures everyone involved has the necessary details for a seamless cricket experience.

  • Simplified Match and Event Scheduling

    • Spond's user-friendly calendar feature enables clubs to easily organise matches, training sessions, and other events. The data between Spond and Play-Cricket syncs automatically, simplifying the scheduling process.

  • Effective Attendance Tracking

    • Tracking player availability and attendance across both platforms is now more straightforward. This functionality assists clubs and coaches in making informed decisions about team selection, ensuring equal opportunities for all players.

  • Commitment to Data Privacy and Security

    • Spond adheres to GDPR regulations, prioritising the protection of user data. This commitment guarantees the confidentiality and security of all personal information within the platform.

How It Works

  • NOTE: The Season Planner feature can only be accessed through the desktop interface of the Spond App.

  • Login to get Started: Please follow this link on a desktop and login to your account, using the same login credentials as you use for the Spond App.

  • Importing Fixtures: Choose 'Create new event', select the group for fixture uploads, and go to 'Season planner'. Click 'Create event invitations'.

  • Selecting Your Club: Click 'Import...' in the top right corner, select 'Play Cricket', and search for your club.

  • Uploading Fixtures: After selecting your team, click 'Show events' to upload all season fixtures to your spreadsheet. Adjust settings like invitation timings as needed.

  • Finalising the Upload: Click 'Select recipients' to upload the fixtures to the chosen group.

Notes on Data Synchronisation

  • All data is sourced from the ECB.

  • If there are inaccuracies, they need to be addressed within the ECB system.

  • Spond's integration does not offer real-time sync with the ECB.

  • Any changes in the ECB fixtures, post-import to Spond, require manual updates in Spond.

  • This ensures your Spond calendar remains accurate. For any further queries, please get in touch with our support team.
