How do I access your images with my API key?

To retrieve Sportradar's images you will need to pull a manifest file (for either action shots, players, coaches, venues, logos, or flags). Within each manifest you will find asset IDs (including syntax) for corresponding images located within each API.

Reference our step-by-step samples or visit our public Postman collection for pre-built sample requests.

What is your Premium package?

Our Premium headshots offer transparent backgrounds to simplify implementation. Visit our Image Provider Coverage doc to view Premium availability.

How long are your action shots available?

Action shot manifests and images are retained for 2 years.

Why are my API requests less for Images compared to other products?

The intention is for you to save each image on your end as requests are made, reducing the number of times needed to call the collection APIs.

See our Headshot Schedule document for important dates on yearly image releases.
