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 data driven 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.

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.

SportsHack is organized by the Ryerson Centre for Cloud and Context Aware Computing (RC4), Big Data University, IBM Canada, and We Are Wearables with the support of Ryerson’s Sport Innovation Hub. This event was made possible through a collaboration with the NRC-IRAP Canada Accelerator and Incubator Program (CAIP) supported university network of Ryerson University, Simon Fraser University (SFU), and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), as well as Volta Labs.
