Sport England has launched a Sports Technology Design Challenge in a bid to find technology that will get more people playing sport.
The search is particularly focused on technology that can get more women, young people or disabled people playing sport.
The technology competition will open in September 2014 and a £10,000 prize will be awarded to the winners of the challenge in order to help them develop, protect and market their creation.
The Challenge will be open to all businesses and organisations with the winning entry set to be revealed at next year’s Sports Technology Awards.
"Technology has transformed so much of the rest of our lives and we believe it holds the potential to revolutionise the way we play grassroots sport,” said Sport England’s Executive Director of Business Partnerships Tanya Joseph.
"We want to unearth an initiative or inspire a technological creation that will get more people playing sport, especially more women, young people or disabled people.”
Criteria for the Sport Technology Design Challenge will be published later this year on the Sports Technology Awards website.
