Making Your First Request

Before you are able to make requests to our API it is required that you have created an Account and an API token. You can create API tokens via the settings page which is available when you are logged in. The API token will only be shown to you when you create them. Please make sure that you 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. 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. You can generate your token on this page.
