Kolkata Knight Riders has added more interactivity to its site, www.Kolkataknightriders.com, by launching a contest section powered by Contests2win.com (C2W), a user generated contesting website. The contest section allows users to test their knowledge about the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Currently, the section features eight quiz contests and there are plans to add five more contests in the near future. The contests test the knowledge of users regarding players such as Brendon McCullum, Sourav Ganguly and Chris Gayle. There are also contests to test overall awareness about the team and its mascot, Hoog Lee. There are plans to launch video based contests as well. The contests will be updated on a daily basis.

Users can play and collect points over a period of time. They are also allowed to comment on the contests. The highest scorers will be awarded.

Kolkata Knight Riders has tied up with various portals to power the content on its site. For instance, it has tied up with Zapak.com, an online gaming portal of Reliance Entertainment. Zapak has created a dedicated cricket zone on KolkataKnightRiders.com and launched five games specially developed for the team’s fans. More games will be added later.

Cricketnext.com, a cricket portal from Web18, is offering news content on KolkataKnightRiders.com.

Mobshare, a mobile content sharing website from MobMe, a Kerala based mobile media company, is helping the site to share photographs taken by Shah Rukh Khan during the Indian Premier League matches.
