How can I view/download the entity media?

Some elements have an image. All images reside on our static site. You can access the image by going to the following URL:
https://static.soccerfootball.info/images/?i=ID_ITEM
Replacing ID_ITEMwith the code of the element you are looking for

How paginate work?

Endpoints with many returns routinely paginated. Here I explain more about how pagination works. First of all, you need to know that the number of elements per page changes automatically depending on your subscription. There is no possibility to specify the number of elements per page.
  • BASIC: 25
  • PRO: 25
  • ULTRA: 75
  • MEGA: 100
Using the p parameter you can specify the required page number, if you omit it as a default value page 1 is required. In the body of the endpoint response you will find the paginate section. This indicates that pagination is active in the following call. If the value would be an empty array, then the call is not paginated.
{
"status": 200,
"errors": [],
"pagination": [
{
"page": 1,
"per_page": 100,
"items" : 6726
}
],
"result": [
...
]
}
  • page indicates the current page number
  • per_page indicates the number of items there are per page
  • items indicates the total number of items
To see if there are any new elements, you can store the last items value and check it periodically. To figure out how many pages there are for each endpoint (and then call them with the p parameter) just divide items with the per_page value, rounding up.
If you use a CSV format, the paginate data appear in the first column with this format: page_1_perPage_100_items_38250
  • 1 indicates the current page number
  • 100 indicates the number of items there are per page
  • 38250 indicates the total number of items
In general if you want to know how many page there are can do the following operation: items / per_page = number_of_pages

How can i request a custom query/endpoint?

The first question is: Why do I need a custom endpoint? Simple, sometimes to optimize your project you need to perform very complex queries on a large database. Here's an example: I want to know the average dangerous attacks and normal attacks of teams that scored at least X goals in a predefined time frame.
We can help you! And we will create a custom enpoint for you that you can call as many times as you want, with different parameters, in complete autonomy.
To request it is very simple: write to [email protected] and describe what your endpoint should do and we will guide you step by step.

Tools

Our API is simple and straightforward even for a human.
For read JSON you can use a simple browser, compone your URL and go to the page. If you use Google Chrome we suggest an extension that format JSON result.
To use API in more complex mode, as well as obviously write a code in the language you prefer, you can use a API software like Postman (https://www.postman.com/) or Swagger (https://swagger.io/)
If you using Postman we have develop the collection file:
If you need to read the CSV format you can use some office software like MS Excel, Libreoffice, OpenOffice or Google spreadsheets.
Our CSV is all in UTF8 linux format, that is compatible with double click open without needed import.
If you need simple the OpenAPI v3 Manifest:
