Teams of developers and designers will descend on Indianapolis for the AT&T 5G Sports Hackathon coming to Butler University next month. AT&T (NYSE: T) says the tech competition will focus on how 5G technology can transform the sports world.

The event will be held at the Health and Recreation Complex on the Indianapolis campus.

AT&T says the teams will be posed with questions from organizers to devise tech solutions to challenges in the sports world. Participants will also hear from 5G experts, local sports teams representatives, venues and public safety to help tackle the challenges. 

The teams will be vying for more than $100,000 in prizes.

“There’s no question that Indianapolis has become a national mecca for major sporting events. Couple that with the tremendous momentum we’re seeing in the state’s technology ecosystem and we know this is the right place for this AT&T 5G Sports Hackathon,” said Eric Kammeyer, director of Esports and Gaming Technology for Butler University. 

High school computer science students from across Indiana will also be engaged in a 24-hour competition utilizing technology geared toward teens. The “Believe Indy” initiative is aimed at reducing violent crime in the area.

“Events like this certainly help close the digital divide in our community, by exposing young people to the inner workings of app development and other meaningful tech experiences. Some may even find their passion,” said Karen Jung, president of Nextech.
