I'm waiting for Key; How long it will take?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
There is a slight delay on issuing keys as we work through a backlog of requests. How long ago did you apply?
[account-removed] 4 years ago
Thanks Matt for response.
It's been a more than a month; I tried re-sending yesterday with new IP as I moved to different location (got message saying email is already in system). Looks like I still need to wait for some time. Once API issued; Can I change client IP?
Matt (Footytube Staff) 4 years ago
Yeah we can update the IP for you. What name/company name did you sign up under? I will chase your application

I made a request for an API key a while ago. Any news on when you'll be letting more people into the Beta stage?
Herzi (Hamburger SV) 4 years ago
Any updates on live scores? If not, do you at least plan to list a match in either fixtures or results as long as it is being played?

Hi Lee,

I applied for a api yesterday.

Is there any chance I could join in with the beta testing?

I run a Bristol City website and would like to use your api.

Kind regards,

Lee, do you now have a license to show the next match on the site? If so do we need a license to use the API data?
Lee (Kidderminster Harriers) 5 years ago
Openfooty is merely a data provider, as explained in the terms. You are responsible for applying for any applicable data licences.

However, with regard to fixture data, you are free to do what you like except in relation to the premier league / UK football leagues and SPL (as far as I know).

Dataco require you to pay some £20k a year last time I looked for showing these UK fixtures. However, you may show the fixture for NEXT match as long as you do it on a per team basis and do not collate this data all together on one page (with multiple teams) - as far as I can recall.

Please double check this - I am not claiming to be 100% up to date on the fixture licensing requirements and this is a rough assessment based on the last time we checked on things.

Ultimately it is your responsibility to do the research / legal legwork required to find out what data licensing is required in your chosen leagues / country
Crooksee (NK Dinamo Zagreb) 5 years ago
Thanks for the info. I will check this out
Crooksee (NK Dinamo Zagreb) 5 years ago

I have got this back. I think we need to be careful about what is shown. Do you have the license?

I have spoken to Dataco who have advised that any part of the fixture list whether it be one match or the complete list will require a license agreement in place.

The only instance we would allow a fixture to be shown without a license would be as part of a significant editorial piece that consisted of both fact and opinion
Lee (Kidderminster Harriers) 5 years ago
We give you access to the data via openfooty, nothing more. Like I say, it is your responsibility to ensure licences are in place and that you comply with guidelines
Crooksee (NK Dinamo Zagreb) 5 years ago
Ok so I gather you have a license? Do you need one for non-league?
Lee (Kidderminster Harriers) 5 years ago
I'm not sure what you're asking. Openfooty doesn't require a licence - it merely provisions access to data. It is only when this data is published (either on your site or elsewhere) that licensing requirements come into effect.

Do remember this only pertains to fixtures, there's a heck of a lot more data under the openfooty hood than fixture feeds.

As for licensing for non-league, as above, I do not believe this requires a licence, but you need to do your own research and make your own decisions - we're not here (nor are we qualified!) to give out legal advice to openfooty publishers
Crooksee (NK Dinamo Zagreb) 5 years ago
I mean do you have a license to show the fixtures on the footytube website?
Oscarva (Millonarios Bogota) 5 years ago
I use the API to display information of the Colombian League. Channel i'd 502 but any query shows me:
Error type A6 Licensing restriction

What can I do?
Lee (Kidderminster Harriers) 5 years ago
Non Commerical Users are given access to 200 of the 700 leagues footytube covers (we have to do this for licensing reasons). By default you are given access to the most popular 200 leagues on FT. If you wish to change the leagues associated with your account, please send us a contact mail and we'll look into it for you
Oscarva (Millonarios Bogota) 5 years ago
That good news. I already have a good time waiting for my key. I hope I have in mind.    Sorry for my bad English: p
