Get started with WNBA API v4



Please note that the current, stable version of our WNBA API is v8. We suggest integrating with this version.


To best utilize the WNBA API, you will need several parameters to create your API calls. The map below illustrates how you can obtain the parameters you need.

The primary feeds require only a date or season to call the endpoints. Those feeds provide Game, Team, or Player Ids which can be used to generate the game, team, and player feeds. All of the other feeds require no variables.

Data Retrieval Examples

To find a team's leader in assists for a given game:

  1. Call the season or series schedule and find the Game Id for the chosen game
  2. Call the Game Boxscore using the Game Id
  3. Find the Team Assists Leader statistics and locate the player full_name attribute

The name of the team's leader in assists is displayed.

To find a player's average points per game:

  1. Call the season or series schedule and find id for the team the player is on
  2. Call the Team Profile using the Team ID
  3. Locate the Player ID for your chosen player and call the Player Profile.
  4. Find the average element with the points attribute

The players's average points are displayed.

Coverage Levels

We provide two different levels of detail to ensure maximum coverage. We combine coverage levels with the correct feeds to ensure you are getting the most comprehensive data offering in the most efficient manner possible.

Extended Boxscore – We provide scores, time remaining, and team leaders (assists, points, and rebounds), in a timely manner, as the game progresses. We provide team- and player-level data for the game within 30 minutes of the official results being posted. Extended Boxscore coverage is available for any pre-season game not available via a reliable broadcast.

Full – We provide live play-by-play coverage for the entire game. We provide updated scores and time remaining as well as team and player level data in near real time. Full coverage is available for all regular and post-season games as well as those pre-season games available live via a broadcast.


Preseason Coverage Note:

Preseason coverage of WNBA games may vary. Due to data-entry coverage (from venue) not being available, some games may be covered via our extended boxscore coverage.
