Introduction

The Field Hockey API offers schedules and results for the top leagues, and the data is collected by Sportradar's operators. The API updates live for select competitions and has a consistent structure, format, and behavior with other General Sport APIs. The primary feeds will provide information on tournaments, schedules, and results.

Moreover, additional feeds are available to provide complementary statistics, including

  • Standings
  • Historical results
  • Match win probabilities
  • Head-to-head statistics

🗝️

API key authentication is required for all API calls.

API Map

To effectively use the Field Hockey API, you must have several parameters to create API calls. The map below shows how you can obtain these parameters.

For the primary feeds, you only need a date or human-readable parameters to call the endpoints. These feeds provide Sport Event Ids, Competitor Ids, or Season Ids, which you can use to generate the match, team, and tournament feeds.

To determine the probability of a home team winning a particular game, follow these steps:

  1. Call the Daily Schedule for the day the sport event will take place and locate the Season Id for the chosen sport event.
  2. Note the Sport Event Id for the given sport event.
  3. Call the Season Probabilities using the Season Id.
  4. Find the Sport Event Id within the results, locate the home team, and check the outcome probability.

The resulting probability will indicate the likelihood of the home team winning.
