If you are not an expert in APIs let’s start for the beginning:
What is an API?
Let’s say you’re trying to find songs about Ed Sheeran on Spotify. You open up Spotify, type “Ed Sheeran” into a search field, hit enter, and you see a list of songs and albums about Ed Sheeran. Our APIs work in a similar way.
If you search for football matches during season 2017/18 you will get a list of matches and additional information back from the service you’re requesting from.
Developers can make the connection between your application and our API. But if you’re not a developer follow the steps below and you can download the data in CSV format and open it in Excel.
So let’s get started, shall we?. But before we start, you’ll need an access key (API Key).
