I use Sportmonks to get Football data to show live feeds and results on kickpros.com. I feel Sportmonks offers the best value for money.

Stephan
Kickpros

I’m using the Enterprise Plan Standard. The most prominent data we use are the lineups. With Sportmonks, lineups of most matches are available an hour before kick-off, which is absolutely great!

Sander Bootsma
Owner Masterscout

Sportmonks’ APIs are fast and reliable, with close to no downtime. JSON formatted responses help a lot.

The best part about their API is the different levels of nested includes, which helps reduce the number of API calls because you can get all information you need in just one API call.

Rakesh Sharma
Owner fantasy sports website

The Sportsmonks soccer API was the best we could find, in terms of coverage that we needed and more importantly a well-made API.

Excellent documentation and the free plans give ample opportunity to test the API with a product in development.

Jason Baylyst
Owner Crowdcoach

Very good product with great price/performance ratio.

Live scores are delivered fast and reliably.

Clean, easy to use API. It builds a base for our own app. Well done!
