About me

Me

I'm Daniel, a software architect from Germany. While developing betting software for personal use I noticed there was a lack of a
  • reliable
  • easy-to-use
  • puristic
  • sophisticated
  • RESTful
API that serves football data, so I decided to create one (almost 4 years ago now). You're welcome to connect with me via View Daniel Freitag's profile on LinkedIn Just give me a hint on what you do with my API :-)

Side-Project Data-UI

A big thank you and all my credits go to Toleg and his team from Chumaky IT, who contributed the nice UI for football-data located at https://data-ui.football-data.org. His contribution includes the whole project including a Java-Backend, complete Routing configuration and a nice Angular-based UI on top, all shipped within Docker containers.
Although this is still in somewhat beta stage, I think this already gives great benefit to the football-data project.

Where do I get the data from?

Well, the data is all around: it's on the radio, on google, news streams, on television, Facebook and Twitter: everywhere! All I do is grab that data, consolidate and structure it and last but not least prove and publish it. With all automation in place it's still a cumbersome and errorprone process, so to improve quantity, accuracy and speed of the data, I’ve partnered up with Data Sports Group, a professional data provider.
