Anders – CEO Comperium AB
This case study is written about Fotboll. We spoke to Anders Karlsson, CEO and owner of Swedish-based Comperium AB, a small company with over 15 years of experience in web development, online marketing and affiliation. The company has several successful projects within gaming, sports, and the finance vertical.Go to Fotboll
“Our flagship is Fotboll.com, Sweden’s most comprehensive football site and app, with sports data exclusively provided by Sportmonks.
Fotboll.com is used by up to 60.000 Swedish football fans per month to stay updated on the top football leagues and cups in Europe and to follow the international tournaments, such as FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro Championship, the corresponding championships that are played in the other continents and more. And, of course, the fast-growing women’s football leagues, cups and tournaments since Sportmonks offers excellent coverage.”
Using Sportmonks sports API, only our imagination and creativity limit the content and the statistics we can shoot. That’s why we can constantly develop, improve and expand our product. Hence, we have a long list of ideas, tools, features and functionality in the pipeline.

That’s on top of everything we offer already. Such as pre-and post-match in-depth statistics, match events, results, livescore, highlights, broadcasts, live streams, news, merchandise, odds, predictions and more.
We strive to make Fotboll.com a prominent place for every Swede who loves football. It’s also an excellent platform for those who take betting seriously, where we provide several tools and tons of information and data that helps the user to make confident and educated decisions for his/her bets.”
The idea for Fotboll.com popped up in November 2016, and the first line of code was written on 1 January 2017, shortly after the launch of Sportmonks. Much research was done to find providers of sports data APIs that included everything we needed to build the excellent football website we had in mind.
We decided to give Sportmonks a try. Today, six years later, both have grown exponentially alongside each other. Still, our product is entirely built on Sportmonks API, and we are very happy that we made that decision.
Sportmonks is providing all the data we use from 4,539 football teams in 102 leagues, cups and tournaments, which includes a total of 65,893 players and hundreds of thousands of football matches.
There are a few things that put the cherry on the cake when it comes to Sportmonks API, and that’s the fact that we even get images of each team’s arena in the API, which we can use to make our match pages look great.
It was straightforward to get started, especially since we have in-house knowledge of working with APIs. Of course, we found a few non-accurate things over the years, but with super fast and constructive support, I can only think of a situation that was solved immediately.
I believe we have had more than enough data and information since day one to build the site’s first beta and develop and expand the site. We can still be very creative with the API, even on such a level that we have features and functionality in the pipeline and the “idea box” we have never seen on any other football site.
So, there’s much more exciting stuff to come!
When we found Sportmonks, we quickly realised that they offered a complete product for football data, with great coverage at highly competitive prices.
