Top Three Teams - Editorial Coverage

The ultimate object of the Hackathon is to give students the platform to elevate their voice and ideas to position them as the innovators they are, whilst simultaneously providing them with vital industry exposure. For these reasons, SportsPro will prepare a feature editorial piece in the aftermath of the event, detailing the work of the top three teams.
