Social Betting App

Social Betting App

The Idea:

Develop an application that enables you to compete with your friends and social network in sports betting. This time it is not about money and the user is the one to define the stake. Is it about cleaning the flat or just a beer you are competing for? It is completely up to the user to decide.

Your Tasks:

Must Haves:

  • Use Sportradar APIs to offer the broadest possible sports betting portfolio to the user.
  • Develop an easy and simple to use application that helps the user to choose the event, the bet, and the friend he wants to compete on and with.
  • Suggest possible stakes.

Nice to Haves:

  • Chat functionality (messenger) within the application.
  • “Debts cleared” functionality to see if you still owe someone something or vice versa.
  • Betting history to oversee your previous “wins” and “losses”.

Your Tasks:

Must Haves:

  • Use Sportradar APIs to get all the sports data you will need.

  • Deploy the app on a cloud services like AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud.

FAQs

The Hackathon is an one-day event that aims to engage developers in the field of sports data.

If that’s you, welcome to the Sportradar Hackathon!

Get access to valuable data feeds and expert support for free. Have fun competing with other developers. Work on your very own idea and have an impact in the sports data industry.

You’re happy to work with others! While you can apply alone, you’ll be teaming up with others in a team of two to four!

When showing up to the event, you already know which Challenge you want to tackle.

At the end of the day you’ll present your progress to an expert jury in a 2-minute elevator pitch.

We want you and your team to have fun!

The application ends on Sunday, 20th of October, midnight. Please make sure you apply before that deadline. After your application for a ticket, we will get in touch with you to provide you with additional information.

Not at all! This is something we will clarify after your application when we get in touch with you. We might recommend you to add a team member, if there is a certain skill missing in your portfolio.

However, the decision who is on your team is completely up to you. Please make sure each team member applies, individually.

A team can consist of a minimum of two and a maximum of four members.

Each team member of the first place team will be presented with a voucher of 400 €.

Each team member of the second place team will be presented with a voucher of 200 €.

Each team member of the third place team will be presented with a voucher of 100 €.

There is also the potential for future employment and/or internships in one of Sportradar’s offices around the globe, whether you win the Challenge or not. Yet, this is at Sportradar´s sole discretion and not guaranteed.

We strongly recommend you to focus on one Challenge. Although 12 hours can be quite long, time is the limiting factor here. Moreover, one team can only present one solution to the Jury at the end of the day.

Professional sports data is data that is collected from professional sports events. This includes statistics you can see on the TV screen while watching the games on the TV, for example. Sportradar covers over 20,000 events every month, across more than 20 sports (including all the most popular ones). The events are covered with the help of an enormous network of more than 7,000 data journalists worldwide. All data collected at the professional sports events from professional athletes is considered professional sports data. Consumer sports data (e.g. data from running apps and wearables) is not considered in the same way as professional data.

Yes. Every successful applicant who received an invite to the Hackathon must participate in this event.

If you cannot come please inform us at least a week prior to the event via our contact form.

The creators of every idea, whether they win or not, retain full ownership of their Intellectual Property. After the Hackathon ends and, if Sportradar sees a commercial value in any of the proposed solutions, there are numerous opportunities for future cooperation between the team and Sportradar – and will be discussed between the two parties after the Hackathon. Winning teams, however, cannot enter into negotiations with any third party until six months after Hackathon result has been announced.
