What is SportIT ?
SportIT is a first-of-its-kind two-day sports innovation festival on January 18-19, 2020 in collaboration with the Sports and Youth Services Department, Government of Odisha, StartUp Odisha, High Performance Centers, higher education institutions and Sports Unlimitech.
The festival will have three different components which include a Sports Hackathon, Start-up Village and Sports Marathon.
JANUARY 18-19, 2020
SportIT will be hosted at Kalinga Stadium, which was the venue for the Men’s Hockey World Cup 2018; the festival is scheduled during the FIH Pro League 2020. The India National Men’s Hockey Team will be playing the Netherlands, in a buildup to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. This FIH sanctioned event will be followed by local, national and international press. SportIt would therefore also benefit from the publicity done by Hockey India and would attract the general public drawn to the International hockey matches.
