They’ve been passed only few days from last league introduced (Eredivise) and we’re ready to say welcome to a new league, this time a minor one: italian Serie B.
As you probably know Sports Open Data is a project born in Milan, Italy so our choices starts, at the beginning of a course, from our country. We’ve started with italian Serie A, maybe not the most interesting league but the more simple for us to monitor, and now it’s time to improve our italian data with another interesting league like Italian Serie B. Serie B is not to be consider a “minor” league because you could find it there great teams with interesting players that plays to promote in Serie A next season. One of them is Hellas Verona that, after a bad season in Serie A last year, has been defined as one of the stronger Serie B team ever.
But, let’s return to Sports Open Data and Serie B data: with our apis you should find results, standings, teams and much more; feel free to discover more our APIs and if you find something wrong consider to open an issue on Mashape (where you could find our documentation) or simply contact us from our website.
