We are sure that cricket fans across the nation are still in awe of Virat’s innings in the opening match of India’s T20 World Cup 2022 campaign against Pakistan.
We are yet to reach the semi-final round of the World Cup, and it has already produced a ton of exciting and collectible moments. FanCraze, in collaboration with the ICC, has announced “Crictos” a first-of-its-kind series of digital collectibles which are available on the official website, i.e., crictos.com.
Furthermore, to make it more exciting for the audience and the game’s fantastic fan base, every match ticket holder is eligible to claim a free Crictos pack. ICC and FanCraze aim to introduce fans to the next generation of patronage.
To give you a better insight, Crictos are officially licensed digital collectible clips that fans can purchase to build a personal digital collection of iconic moments in cricket history. In addition, fans can utilize Crictos by trading them with their friends and exchanging them for rewards and real-world benefits.
So, you must wonder how to step into this world of cricket NFTs. Don’t worry! We’ve got your back.
Every matchday at 3:30 pm (IST), the queue is accessible to the fans for the next game’s packs in advance. The pack price starts at as low as USD 5 (INR 410 approx.), allowing you to collect one moment or collectible from the match. FanCraze analyzes the game to select the best moments and converts them into 3D digital cards, which are essentially a combination of a video and a photo of the moment. Once the match is over, test your luck by opening the pack and seeing what you have unpacked.
The ICC Head of Digital, Finn Bradshaw, expresses delight in launching the world’s first cricket digital collectibles in collaboration with FanCraze. According to Finn, the Crictos Pack will significantly add to the cricket memorabilia. He shared a memory about preserving his match ticket from the 1992 World Cup as a souvenir and is excited about this new technology that allows fans to collect permanent mementos.
FanCraze CEO Anshum Bhambri is incredibly proud of this initiative and refers to it as a ‘see now, buy now’ experience to the cricket NFT world. He states that gifting a Crictos pack to ticket holders is to provide the ‘I was there’ ownership experience.
Bhambri also announced special pack drops, rewards, games, and exciting real-world goodies for fans throughout the T20 World Cup 2022.
All the benefits are up and available for cricket lovers around the globe. So now don’t just watch cricket; own a share of its memories.
