Design a solution that recreates the power of togetherness for fans, athletes, and teams competing in a sporting event even without the ability to be there in person.
Out of this central challenge emerge a series of important design questions that all teams involved should consider:
How can fans cheer differently?
How can that cheering be “felt” by the athletes?
How can we enhance ghost games for those inside the arena?
Can we design ways to not only show support, but to allow fans to heckle, or boo?
How can fans sense the presence of each other, and feel together even when apart?
The five winning entries in this Hackathon will get to present their ideas to a panel of top executives in the sports industry (major leagues, teams, and brands).
