Vorto Gaming has claimed its biggest wicket to date, announcing an exclusive partnership with the new sports management title, Cricket Star Manager.

The deal will see Vorto Gaming and Cricket Star Manager developers, Gold Town Games work in unison with the game producer, CS Games, to create an innovative and revolutionary title that will have play-to-earn at its core.

In what will be a first for the sports management genre, players will be able to monetise their gameplay through a variety of in-game mechanics, allowing cricket fans and gamers across the globe the chance to own, run and drive real-world revenue for their very own sports franchise; turning fantasy sports management into reality.

“Sports manager games have been a staple part of the gaming industry for over three decades and we’re excited to join forces with Gold Town Games on a title that we feel has incredible global potential. For most of us, owning a real-world sports team is merely a fantasy, but we’re turning that into a genuine possibility for millions of fans. It’s a landmark moment for the industry and one we believe will shape the future of this genre of games for years to come.” Said Kris Vaivods, CEO of Vorto Gaming.

According to the International Cricket Council (ICC), cricket is the second most popular sport in the world with an audience eclipsing 2.5 billion across countries including India, Australia, South Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and the United Kingdom. Combined with a rapidly growing and influential gaming market that is estimated to contain over 40% of the world’s population, the foundation for a sports management game that can provide long-term, real-life benefits for its players is most certainly set.

Inspired by sports simulation titles and play-to-earn games that have showcased the true potential of blockchain gaming, Cricket Star Manager is the industry’s first sports management game that could provide lifechanging income for its players.

“The IPL, Big Bash and The Hundred have created a new look for cricket, one that champions franchises and ownership models that have turned sports teams into globally recognisable brands. We’re democratising that and giving everyone in the cricket community the opportunity to earn money from the sport they love. Sport has the power to affect change; together, sport and gaming has the power to change lives.” Said Lars Alin, Head of Product, Cricket Star Manager.

Players who could be set to benefit most from the play-to-earn model will be those across South Asia, where cricket is a major part of the social and cultural agenda; and with the average annual household income less than $1,000, Cricket Star Manager could provide a valuable additional source of income to millions.

“Our ambition is to build a thriving play-to-earn community that can become one of the top 10 income sources for people across South Asia by the end of 2023.” Added Lars Alin
