is there any integration or something like that to track information about football matches, e.g.: UEFA EURO 2020 in ha? such as https://www.api-football.com/pricing
Lol i actually had this idea yesterday. Since the european football championship is starting, I searched for an API that can provide live/real time info or some kind of RSS feed with the game stats. And once my country managed to score, turn lights green and disco a bit lol to enjoy this experience even more.
My wife is a true fanatic and would go insane hahah. I haven’t managed to find a reliable source that I can reach out to for stats. One was paid through rapidapi, this is some platform where people can “rent out” their API on a subscription fee contract. Costs a lot and the one i found wasnt reachable. No documentation, so wouldnt know which data to pull.
I hope someone here has a brilliant idea which I can implement asap hahahah!
I’ve added a calendar with the dates of the games to my google calendar and then I created some template sensors with the relevant informations.
So at least I know when the next game is starting.
But a feed with the live information would be really great.
Here’s a quick hack I’m using to have a sensor that just shows the latest post from https://twitter.com/Sportschau_live which is a german twitter account for UEFA soccer stats.
sensor: - platform: scrape resource: https://nitter.mailstation.de/Sportschau_live/rss name: rss_feed_sportschau_live select: "title" index: 2 scan_interval: 120
As you can see I’m using nitter which is an alternative twitter web client supporting ATOM feeds.
Not super-elegant but gives me something like that:
