Long Wait For API Keys
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago

I would like to thank you all for the support for this project.

At the inception of this project we aimed to try and provide something that simply did not exist and that was free access to data for start ups.

We have encountered a few problems on the way and have found we are unable to do this in a majority of the cases. It all hinges around a few key points, firstly a lot of the applications we have are simply trying to recreate what they see here and that was never the purpose of offering this data. Secondly the definition of what constitutes a commercial or a non-commercial application.

To this end our data providers have been very clear, the only free non commercial applicants we can accept are those that are either a registered charity or those that need a license for educational purposes (time limited).

I wish to personally apologies to everyone who has waited for a key and not heard anything but we had to get the matter clear internally before we either accepted/declined your applications. Despite this it was wrong of us to keep you all in the dark for so long.

If you fall outside the student/charity criteria but are still interested in this project and would like to know the pricing for a commercial application please make a new application indicating 'commercial' and we will get back to you.

I have requested an API key but not yet had a response. Is there any more information you require from me to get things started?

Hi, guys please give a statement.
Just tell us if the project is dead, just tell us if you don't want us to use it, or tell us if you don't have time to care.
But please JUST TELL US what's going ON!

Hello everyone,

When I found openfooty today I was very happy and glad to find a project like that. On paper it seems amazing. I filled out the form and applied, being excited about the reply.
Now I browsed the forums, especially this thread, and my excitement is over So many people here wondering about late replies, and since there are no follow-up posts nor replies but the footytube people, I assume they never received their API key.
So somehow I lost all my hope right now

It's such a pity to see there's an amazing project like that, and still not many people can use it obviously

It would be so kind if you could care about the users a little more, since that's what openfooty was made for, if I understood right.

Hi Matt,

I think I might requested an API Key as non-commercial project. This was only for testing purposes.
Now I have a use case for a commercial app (https://www.Facebook.Com/apparena/app_143023345832908). I need a pricing and a list of supported leagues/cups you provide data for.
Can you get in touch with me? S.Buckpesch (at) iconsultants.Eu or +49-221-67788502)
Thanks a mil,

Just hoping for an update about my application. I'm building an android app for Wolves news. It will be primarily for personal use and will be non-commercial. Use of the API would be ideal for getting results/fixtures/tables etc.

Thanks in advance

Matt, I would really appreciate if you could let me know whether my application was accepted. I submitted a request a week ago regarding a project that uses dynamic programming techniques to analyze match and team statistics. I really hope that you will give me a positive reply, so that I can move on with my work. I am going to make the best of it. I used the email associated with this account in my submission. Best regards! -Alexander
