The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and Tap ‘N’ Play are working together to bring fans the chance to collect Hero CPL Digicards. These cards can be downloaded using the Tap ‘N’ Play app where they can be saved and traded. Fans using the app can unlock special acheivements as the CPL progesses towards the knockout stages. 

Fans can play games to win in game coins to unlock cards or they can buy whole sets through the app. These collectable Digicards have been available for the ICC Cricket World Cup and the Big Bash in Australia.

Chris Watson, Hero CPL’s Head of Marketing, said: “We are always looking for innovative and engaging ways for our wonderful fans to get more involved in our tournament, and these Tap ‘N’Play cards are a great way for them to do that. It is a great app that allows fans the chance to collect really beautifully designed Digicards featuring their favourite players and we are delighted to have this new addition in 2019.”

Neil Armstong, Managing Director of Tap’N’Play, said: “Trading Cards have entertained sporting fans for decades and Tap’N’Play are really excited to work with the CPL to introduce fans to the new world of digital trading cards through our Tap’N’Play app.

“The colour and atmosphere of the CPL is unrivalled in world cricket and we have hopefully designed the cards to reflect that unique Caribbean culture. Fans can collect all the cards of their favourite players and teams, and the special cards that are released to celebrate the milestones throughout the tournament. We hope the fans enjoy the experience.”
