While getting familiar with STATSCORE products, you may have found that we have two different data feeds: SportsAPI and ScoutsFeed. You may have wondered, what is the difference and which one of them you should choose! Let us give you a helping hand, and guide you to make the right choice, for your business.

I NEED LIVE SCORES AND EXTENDED STATS FROM CHOSEN GAMES

First things first, you have to know what your main needs are. Glad that we can agree on that! When your key demand is live, up to date information that includes all key incidents and stats form the game, we can point you in the direction of the wonderful world of ScoutsFeed!

While engineering this product, we used our best experiences and knowledge about the needs of partners from different sectors: betting, media and sport. This led us to come up with a solution that can be used successfully to power up many different projects that have a huge demand for sports data.

For most of the key competitions, we keep a big database of historical data, which allows you to provide your users, not only with the most up to date run of results but also with information from the past. If you run an online project where people seek historical or cumulative data to make predictions and assumptions, you could not find a better solution.

We serve STATSCORE’s SportsAPI with a choice of four levels for most sports, starting from the basic BRONZE level that contains the elementary data you would need, such as season and participants data, up to the most sophisticated stats at the VIP level.

WHICH ONE SHOULD I CHOOSE, SPORTSAPI OR SCOUTSFEED?

Basically, the answer is determined by your main needs. Below we have prepared a table that allows you to compare these two products and make the choice easier.
