Description

$14,000 in prizes. Two days. Three cities. More than 400 participants from across Canada.

SportsHack will bring together teams of hackers in Toronto, Vancouver and Halifax to compete in developing innovative sports-related software solutions.

This year, in partnership with the Canadian Football League (CFL), SportsHack challenges you to develop real world technologies from the CFL's real world data.

The final challenge(s) will not be announced until the event begins, but all of the necessary materials and data will be released prior to the event. Follow #SportsHack15 for upcoming details, so that your team can start planning.

At the end of the weekend-long hackathon, regional finalists from the three locations will advance to the national round, where they will have the opportunity to make a virtual pitch to our panel of judges. The winning team will have an opportunity to work with the CFL and mentors to bring their solution to market.

For more information, please visit sportshackweekend.org.

Need a team? No problem. There will be an open window at the beginning of the competition where we can help connect you with other registered participants.

Wondering where to stay? You can stay with us, just bring your pillow and sleeping bag.

Don’t know much about football? We’ve got you covered. We’ll have mentors attending that can help show you how to apply your tech know how to the CFL. We're looking for fan engagement solutions. Consider the CFL your first customer.
