Click on the categories below or browse questions on the right panel.




What leagues or tournaments do you cover for soccer?

You can find all the leagues we cover, as well as a breakdown of data offered, via our Coverage Matrix.

When is coverage information added to the endpoints?

On the first day of the season.

How do I find out the coverage for a particular match?

Find the node for coverage within the Summaries, Lineups, and Timeline endpoints.

Coverage nodes have three types: season level, group level, and sport_event level.

  • The season level describes data coverage you can expect for matches involved in that given season.
  • The group level is similar because there exists competitions where coverage levels differ at different stages or in different groups - mostly cup competitions.
  • The sport_event level describes the data depth of a specific match within the group and season.

Note: There are occasions when the sport_event coverage can vary from the anticipated season coverage. This node exists to highlight that instance and assist in handling any discrepancies.

<coverage type="sport_event">
    <sport_event_properties lineups="true" venue="true" extended_player_stats="true" extended_team_stats="true" basic_play_by_play="true" basic_player_stats="true" basic_team_stats="true"/>

How is coverage for a particular match defined?

The coverage nodes contain classifications of data types which are expressed as Boolean values or denoted as live or post.

<coverage type="sport_event">
    <sport_event_properties lineups="false" venue="false" extended_player_stats="false" extended_team_stats="false" 
      ballspotting="false" commentary="false" fun_facts="false" goal_scorers="false" scores="post" game_clock="false" 
      deeper_play_by_play="false" deeper_player_stats="false" deeper_team_stats="false" basic_play_by_play="false" 
      basic_player_stats="false" basic_team_stats="false"/>

How do you define basic and deeper play-by-play in terms of coverage?

  • basic_play_by_play includes score_change, cards, and substitutions.
  • deeper_play_by_play includes all other event types.

How will a sport event behave when it is not covered with live scores?

When a sport_event is not covered live, the status and match_status will remain as not_started until results are entered post-match.

<sport_event_status status="not_started" match_status="not_started"/>

How are “Live” endpoints handled in the API?

Sport Events appear in the feed 10 minutes before the scheduled start time and are removed 10 minutes after the Sport Event is ended. Live endpoints include: Live Summaries, Live Timelines, and Live Timelines Delta.

How are friendlies handled in the Summary endpoints?

The Summary endpoints return all Friendlies played in the last 2 weeks and scheduled for the next 4 weeks.

What level of coverage is offered for friendly competitions?

Friendly competitions are handled uniquely, with coverage being set on a case-by-case basis. Selected matches will be scouted and will therefore have live coverage. We would suggest checking sport_event_properties within each sport_event to understand the coverage set for a particular match.

How do you define Team Statistics and Player Statistics as sport_event_properties in terms of coverage?

Team Statistics:

  • basic_team_stats: yellow_cards, yellow_red_cards, red_cards.
  • deeper_team_stats: corner_kicks, shots_total, shots_on_target, shots_off_target, shots_blocked, ball_possession, free_kicks, offsides, goal_kicks, throw_ins, shots_saved, fouls, and injuries.

Player Statistics:

  • basic_player_stats: goals_scored, yellow_cards, yellow_red_cards, red_cards, own_goals, assists, substituted_in, and substituted_out.
  • deeper_player_stats: offsides, corner_kicks, shots_on_target, shots_off_target, and shots_blocked.

Why does the coverage of a cup competition not match the data?

For cup competitions, coverage levels may vary from the early rounds to latter stages. Coverage properties are set at a competition level and display the best coverage we offer for a sport event in this competition.

Why is goals_scored the only statistic available in Season Leaders and Season Competitor Statistics for some competitions?

This is determined by the assists="false" property in the Season Info feed which indicates that stats below goals_scored are not guaranteed for the competition in question.

<sport_event_properties basic_play_by_play="false" basic_player_stats="false" basic_team_stats="false" 
extended_player_stats="false" extended_team_stats="false" deeper_play_by_play="false" deeper_team_stats="false" 
deeper_player_stats="false" lineups="false" goal_scorers="false" scores="live" assists="false"/>


How can I find the values for various enum data points within the API?

Many enum values are listed in the FAQ below. For the most up-to-date values, please see the Schema section of the OpenAPI specification here

What format are date fields presented in?

When we present date only values we present these in the ISO 8601 standard format.

ex: 2013-04-03

We use these for attributes that have date and no time (such as birthdate). For more information:

What format are the date/time fields presented in?

All of our Date/Time attributes are in UTC, presented in the ISO 8601 standard format.

ex: 2013-04-03T18:15:00+00:00

For more information:

How do I locate the TTL (Time to Live)/cache on an API endpoint?

The cache (in seconds) can be accessed in the returned header information on each RESTful API call, under cache-control.

ex. cache-control: max-age=1, public, s-maxage=1 or
cache-control: public, must-revalidate, max-age=120

How does the possible_goal event type work?

This event will occur immediately if one team scores a goal or if they are in a very clear scoring opportunity (1on1 with the goalkeeper, clear shot at an empty net, etc).


Why can't I find a particular match in the Daily Summaries, Season Summaries or Sport Events Updated endpoints?

These endpoints support pagination and return 200 entries by default. To return more matches, an additional query string parameter must be used after your API key. For example, appending &start=200 will return the next 200 entries per page, &start=400 will return the next 200, and so on.


What is the Probabilities package?

The Probabilities package is an add-on set of feeds that are an extension of the Season Probabilities feed in the main package (which already provides pre-match probabilities for the sport event winner market).

The main features of the Probabilities extension are: Live Probabilities that update throughout game, Season Outright Probabilities for the Tournament Winner market, and Live Probabilities Coverage indicator for the next 24 hours.

Is there Live Probability coverage for every game you cover in the Soccer API?

Live Probability coverage depends on a number of factors and we can’t guarantee that every game will be covered for any given league. However, Sportradar covers tens of thousands of sport events across hundreds of leagues.

For individual competition coverage, contact [email protected]

What are markets and what are the different markets?

Markets is something you can bet on that we provide probabilities for. Over time we intend to provide more and more markets in the API. Currently the only market we provide is 3-way (will the home team win? Or the away team? Or will it be a draw?).

What are the valid outcomes for probabilities?

  • home_team_winner
  • away_team_winner
  • draw

Lineups / Rosters

When does the Lineups Availability update?

The lineups_availability data is updated 30 days before the sport event is scheduled to begin.

When will lineups confirmed show as true?

Lineups information displays as it is entered. Once complete, we confirm lineups and the lineups_confirmed attribute updates to true. This only appears for matches with lineups_availability="pre".

What are the possible values for sport_event_propertieslineups_availability in the Summary and Timeline endpoints?

  • pre
  • post

What are the valid lineup types (player position) values?

  • goalkeeper
  • defender
  • midfielder
  • forward

What are the valid lineups descriptions (player tactical position) values?

  • goalkeeper
  • right back
  • central defender
  • left back
  • right winger
  • central midfielder
  • left winger
  • striker

How is the order value in the Lineups endpoint organized?

Order number 1 is always the goalie (star marking) and formations as well as numbering should start with the goalkeeper.

In the example diagram the formation 4-2-3-1 is used.

4 is the number of players in the line in front of the goalkeeper, then comes the line with 2 players and so on.

Numbering in every line starts at the right-hand side of the goalkeeper – this causes the numbering to be mirrored for the home and away team.

Do you have player transfer data available?

We use roles from player profiles to create a Season Transfers endpoint. This displays any player recently assigned to a team in a season covered with player_transfer_history="true".

Transfers can include youth players recently added to a matchday squad. If there is no previous club within 10 days, then this will be understood to be a free agent and therefore no from_competitor will display.

For transfer_date, we use multiple sources and cannot guarantee the accuracy.

What are the possible reasons for a player to appear in the Missing Players endpoint?

  • injured
  • ill
  • other
  • suspension

Ball Location

How does the ball location attribute work?

Our scouts mark down the x (lateral) and y (longitudinal) coordinates as observed on the pitch. The data can come in sporadically as events on the field play out, but new ball_location data is potentially available every 1 sec. This is only available for matches with ballspotting="true".

The element ball_locations stores the last four known ball locations, after which the data is not available unless it corresponds with another event in the timeline such as throw_in or shot_on_goal. The ball_location order illustrates the most recent location as 4 and the oldest location as 1.

What is the scale of the X Y coordinates?

The pitch we use is 100 by 100. Here is a layout of the pitch:

X = Horizontal position on the pitch. X is a number between 0 and 100. The reference point 0 is at the home team’s goal.

Y = Vertical position on the pitch. Y is a number between 0 and 100. The reference point 0 is on the top of the pitch where the home team’s goal is on the left hand side.

What are the possible values for match situation status (match_situation.status)?

Listed below are the values and definitions for match_situation - status. These can be leveraged to determine the status of a ball in play.

  • safe - Team in possession of the ball is inside their defensive half
  • dangerous - Team in possession is in the opponent’s half but not near the penalty box
  • attack - Team in possession is in the opponent’s half, near the penalty box

Past Season Data

Why does the coverage of past seasons not match the data?

Coverage properties are set at a competition level and only reflect the current or last season of that competition. Previous seasons may have greater or lesser coverage.

How long is full match data available in the API?

Match data is archived after one year and you will only be able to service basic score information from the API.

A historical statistics API for Soccer is on the roadmap, but no ETA is available at this time.

How are seasonal competitor statistics handled?

Statistics from any qualification rounds will not be displayed. The feed will only display data from the main competition.

Standings / Tournaments

What are the valid standings types in the Standings endpoint?

  • total
  • home
  • away

What are the possible values for cup_roundstate in the Season Links endpoint?

Listed below are the values and definitions for cup_round - state. These can be leveraged to determine the status of a cup round.

  • empty - A matchup has been created but neither the match details nor the competitors are known.
  • unseeded_fixture - Match details are known but competitors are unknown.
  • partial_seeded - One competitor is known.
  • partial_seeded_fixture - Match details and one competitor are known.
  • seeded - Both competitors are known.
  • seeded_fixture - Match details and both competitors are known.
  • unstarted - Match(es) have been added.
  • on_going - The first match has started.
  • decided - The last match has ended.
  • winner - The winner is known.
  • cancelled – The matchup has been cancelled.

Are Live Standings available?

Live standings are delivered by default in the Season Standings endpoint. Live standings use an automatic set of tiebreaker rules that are calculated based on the scores while matches are in progress.

We recommend adding the parameter live=false to a Season Standings request to retrieve standings when matches are not in progress. This will consider any additional tie-break criteria that a competition may use if competitors are level.

Why does the change attribute not update for live standings?

The change attribute is only available post-match and will display movement from the previous gameweek/round.

Data Point Definitions

How do you define the key data points?

Data PointsType of Data PointDefinition

A goal is assigned to a player of the attacking team if his shot taken by foot, head or any other part of the body leads to a score. All attempts are counted.

Uncontrolled deflections resulting in a goal will be attributed to the player who kicked the ball, not the player who deflects the ball.

own goal

When a defender kicks or heads the ball into the defender’s goal with the intent of making a pass to a teammate or of clearing the ball and it is obvious that no other player of the attacking team tried a shot on target, a goal is recorded as an "own goal". An "own goal" counts towards the offensive team's season statistics. No assist shall be given to the attacking team.

If an attacking player shots on goal and the defender deflects the ball into the net, in a controlled action it will be deemed an own goal.

If two players of the defending team touched the ball, the player who last touched it is the own goal scorer.


in general

An assist considered to be a contribution by a player which directly helps a teammate to score a goal. In order to be considered for an assist a player needs to have given the last successful pass. However, the last successful pass does not necessarily automatically constitute an assist.
  • Includes corners and throw ins

  • A cross by a team member is converted into a goal

  • Passes/crosses, which are slightly deflected and then lead to a team member score a goal 

not counted
  • Where goals resulting from penalties are concerned, the player who is fouled in the area receives no assist point

  • shot hits the post/bar and then leads to a goal by a team member

  • The goal scorer made considerable self-effort in order to score

Throw-In If the ball crosses any of the side lines by its diameter, the game will continue with a throw-in.
Free kicksteam statisticsIn accordance with the rules, a free kick stat counted for the team who executes a free kick. Direct or indirect free kicks are all counted as free kicks.
Goal kickteam statisticsTotal number of kicks awarded to the team as a result of the ball traveling out of bounds over the goal line of the defending team
Throw insteam statisticsTotal number of thrown in events for a team
Offsidesteam statisticsTotal number of offside infringements awarded against a team.
