The definitive guide to data feeds for your fantasy soccer business!

Use these powerful insights about data feeds to create a winning fantasy soccer platform.

Imagine how fantasy soccer would be without data? A self-sustained and absolutely sticky fantasy soccer application that lets you play all the major soccer leagues such as - EPL, La Liga, Champions League, Bundesliga, Serie A - handles data feeds related to live in-game scores and stats, real-time games, post-game data, players and leagues, news feeds about players and so on. But what really makes this entire mechanism work is the accuracy of the data feeds. What are data feeds? Let’s find out.

What is data feed?

Data feed is an ongoing stream of structured data depending upon the performance of players in the real time. A data feed may stream continuously or on demand. Data feed makes it possible to deliver the run-time updates and scoring changes and bestows transparency to daily fantasy soccer business model. Generally, a data feed provider supplies a series of elements and updates in XML or JSON format. These are the standard formats of transferring and consuming any form of information between two different platforms.

Why do you need data feeds?

If you are planning a daily fantasy soccer website, you need a data feed provider. Data feeds will give the website the power to update the scoring in real time or keep updating the player roaster based upon their real-time behavior. This could be their on-field performance and/or off-field behavior. This brings transparency on the website about the winners. Data feed also helps to plan your custom scoring rules.

Data feed providers

When it comes to data feeds, there’s a good number of companies offering fantasy soccer data feeds. However, it is important to identify those whose data feeds are optimized to support fantasy soccer applications. Also, various sports data providers have different attributes and prizing associated with their feeds. For instance, fantasy soccer games are powered by highly sophisticated algorithms. These combinations are critical for assessing the crucial aspects of, say a soccer star’s performance that contributes to an overall result. This kind of data feeds further helps in enhancing the overall user experience. At Vinfotech, we share a great working relationship with the best names in the sports data feeds industry. These include names like OPTA, Sports Radar and Fantasy Data LLC etc.
