Livescore API Documentation


On this page you will find everything that you need to start using our API. This is the entry point from where you can check the Overview of the API, the Getting started section is here too. You will also find sample code in a variety of programming languages from which you can pick your favourite one and copy paste it into your project and start using it. To dive deeper into our api documentation you can check the full reference of it.

Overview


This section follows a brief overview of why this livescore api is created and it scratches the surface of some of its features. In the examples of url calls, source code, and response we have left a copy option indicated by the icon. When you press this icon it will copy the related exmample to your clipboard and you can paste it directly in your source code.

Why?

If you are running a sport website about football or as they call it soccer in the United Stated you need a livescore feed on it. Football fans are constantly checking the scores. Whether it is their favourite team they are looking after, or maybe they are just checking if their bet is going to pay out. Fans need this service. We have complete a number of interviews with football fans from all over the world that tell us what livescores mean to them. You can read more about them on our interviews section. This is why fans need livescore, but why do you need them. If you have visitors that check out your website form time to time, it is much more likely to make them stay if they have a reason. And what a better reason than having a livescore that can keep them engadged for 90 minutes and why not 120 if ther es extra time.

Architecture

We are constantly developing and improving out api services. The most important part of our work is that we are trying to follow the REST recommendation is much as possible. In order for you to use our services you need a programming language or any other software that can make requests over the internet. This way you can access our services from any point in the world in any given time of the day or night.

Authentication

The majority of the requests that you are going to make are GET. Therefore we have simplified the authentication to be as easy as possible. All you need to do is to register yourself in the website or login to your account in case you alrady have one to obtain your API key and API secret pair. This is the only thing that you need to make you first request to our API. You can also follow our full tutorial on getting your api key and secret pair from your profile.
