Live streaming has become a mainstay of the county game over the past few years, which has allowed fans to watch matches that aren’t televised on sky, from the comfort of their home.
Wouldn’t it also be great for Palace Shield teams to do the same? The footage of that 6, that slip catch, that drop would be great to help your club become more appealing to your playing members! Plus, it’s an incredible opportunity for your sponsors to support new technology in amateur sports by putting their logo on the action. Not to mention attracting more followers to your ever-growing social media networks.
Well, the wait is over. Waffle is a company who have been helping amateur cricket clubs live stream for the past two years, including a couple of Palace Shield clubs.
They’re launching their new product, the iCast to be ready for the 2020 season. The iCast comes as three parts. The portable camera that streams the footage, a sight screen shelf (which the camera slots into) that sticks permanently to your sight screen to hold it in place, and a smartphone app for you to control the stream from.
The iCast usually costs £500, with a monthly subscription of £35 on top, but they’re running a campaign in the off-season that will dramatically reduce this cost for some clubs.
Signing up to their waiting list will get you 1 free month of subscriptions instantly. But that’s not all. Once you join the waiting list, you will receive an email containing information on how your club can “queue jump”. On March 20th 2020, the top 10 clubs in the list will receive a FREE iCast and 4 free highlights videos – a bonus package worth £580! The next ten will also receive a FREE iCast, and the third ten will receive £100 off the cost of their iCast.
Not only that, but Waffle are offering a special Palace Shield boost. If you quote “Palace Shield” as your referrer when you sign up, you’ll be boosted twice as much as other clubs would. If more than 10 Palace Shield clubs sign up, all Palace Shield clubs will profit, with a league boost.
Sound good? Head over to www.wafflesport.com/icast to register your club to the waiting list, don’t forget to quote “Palace Shield” as your referrer, and then follow the instructions in the email you receive shortly after you sign up to boost your way to seriously cheap live streaming next season. Never miss that incredible (or not!) moment.
