Making Your First Request

Introduction

You need to create an account and api_token before you can make requests to our API. Once you’ve created your account, you can create your API token via the settings page. For security reasons, the api_token will only be shown to you when you create it. Please make sure to store your token safely.

To authorize a request to our API, you must add a parameter to your request called api_token. The value of this parameter is the actual token you received when you created it. An example of a request:

GET https://soccer.sportmonks.com/api/v2.0/leagues?api_token=__TOKEN__

SportMonks will measure the usage of all the tokens you have generated and will make them visible via your dashboard. Please note that endpoint limits count against a user and not against a token.
