As part of the second Festival dello Sport at Trento (Sport's Festival), our University and the University of Pisa will organize a Soccer Data Challenge open to all data and soccer enthusiasts. It will be an analytical football marathon: the participating teams will have 30 hours to solve an analytical problem related to soccer, using the largest dataset of game events ever released. The finalists will present their work to a jury of professionals from the world of football and BigData. The prize is € 5,000 for the winners.
Registrations will close on September 12th, so interested parties are invited to register using the registration form at http://bit.ly/2m2HThy
