2020 First Pitch Case Competition

Every year, the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference hosts the First Pitch Case Competition for top graduate students from around the globe who are attending the conference. The competition focuses on the evaluation and analysis of a major sports organization’s most challenging issues, while providing a networking and educational platform for graduate students with sports career aspirations.

In teams of three, students are tasked with analyzing provided data and recommending solutions for a challenging sports business issue. Three finalist teams are then selected to present in front of an open audience at the conference. Previous years cases have been developed in conjunction with Eventellect, Ticketmaster, Zebra Technologies, MLB Advanced Media, the NFL, and AECOM.
