Football Widgets

Football data without the hassle of developing. Get it done in minutes!

Easy-to-use widgets are available for everyone!

We know the struggle

At Sportmonks, we have struggled to find a great and, at the same time, affordable football data provider. We wanted to build a fantasy game but found it hard to find a provider who knew how to meet our wishes and needs. We stumbled upon the issue of having cheap but terrible football data or having amazing but absurdly expensive football data. There was nothing in between.

Not anymore

As data freaks with a sports heart, we said: “No more struggling. We will do it ourselves.” And now, we have been a data provider for over 20,000 customers since 2016. We provide high-quality data for an affordable price!

We know development can be a struggle. At Sportmonks, we believe that football data should be trustworthy and available for everyone, with or without developing skills. Also, it shouldn’t take too long to implement your application.

Developing your own football data application costs too much time, so we have developed our widgets!

We have three types of widgets:

  1. World Cup widgets
  2. Team widgets
  3. League widgets

Why should I use widgets?

Widgets make your life easier. It is easy to use and can be used on multiple platforms. They are independent applications easily embedded (copied and pasted) into your website or application. The Sportmonks widgets are being copied and pasted into the head, body and end of the body of the website.

Widgets are easy to implement, and you can customize the widgets so that it fits right into the look and feel of your website or application. It seems like a part of your website!

The best part is that you don’t have to worry about the developing part. For example, developing a standings page or a livescore page.

Here is how it works

  1. Choose your widget(s)
  2. Configure the widget(s)
  3. Enjoy high-quality Football updates
