At Sportmonks, we know that you want to be trusted. In order to do that, you need reliable sports data.

The problem is finding a trustworthy and affordable data supplier is hard. This makes you uncertain about which supplier to choose. We believe that everybody deserves access to reliable sports data.

As data freaks with a sports heart, we understand the hassle of gathering the right data. That’s why we have made sports data easily available for 20,000 users since 2016, including high-end media companies and sports leagues.

This is how we do it:
1. Start your free trial
2. Build your sports application
3. Enjoy high-quality and reliable sports data

So, you can stop spending your precious time searching for the right provider and lose clients because of unreliable data.

And instead, stop worrying about the reliability of your data. Your developers will love you for it, and your clients will stick with you.

Beginning of Sportmonks

We’re excited to share our incredible journey that started in 2016.

Growth of online fan engagement industry

At the time, I (Jur) and my partner Ronnie were both living our own lives with different jobs. One day, we noticed incredible growth and potential in the world of sports fans and sports data and decided to start our own football fantasy website.

Getting High-quality sports data for a reasonable price was impossible

However, as you probably know, creating such a website requires good football data.

We quickly stumbled upon the issue of having cheap but terrible football data or having amazing but absurdly expensive football data. There was nothing in between.

There was no decent or good football data available for an affordable price.

There has got to be a way

And there was. We just said: ”Fine, we’ll do it ourselves.”. We decided to gather and refine the sports data that we needed ourselves, rather than purchasing it.

It started with small bits of data, but we became increasingly proficient at gathering and enriching raw football data as time progressed.





High-quality football data is necessary for success

Rise of Sportmonks: building the product we were looking for

After everything was running smoothly and we had refined our own sports data.

At that point, we realized that we were probably not the only ones who struggled with finding an affordable and good football data provider.

We also already had a pretty decent product in our hands. So, we thought: ‘Why not sell our gathered data ourselves?’ And so we did.

The Sportmonks

In 2020, we can proudly proclaim that Sportmonks offers its customers sports data with exceptional value for their money. Our Football data is the fastest and most reliable of every middle segment data provider while remaining highly affordable.

In these four years, we have reached major milestones. In 2020 we reached 17.000 user accounts. We also now offer Cricket and Formula 1 data. What started as a small passion project in 2016 has become a profitable and sustainable business over the years. We started in a small shed and have since then grown exponentially with a worldwide team of scouts, developers, data partners and journalists.

As Sportmonks continues its operations in 2023, we strive to continuously add new data features and offer more sports in the near future.

We hope you’ll join us in creating the future of sports together. Don’t see us as just a provider, but as your long-term data partner. We aim to become the best sports data company in the world.

Kind regards,

Founders Jur and Ronnie
