Instant NFL stats and data will be available to developers this year

Developers Score Instant NFL Data Via the Sportradar API ProgrammableWeb


Muscles and bones won’t be the only things getting crunched when the National Football League kicks off its 2015 season in September. Thanks to a new deal between the NFLand Sportradar US, on-field performance data for each player will also be getting crunched thanks to a new API and RFID chips embedded in each player’s shoulder pads. TV broadcasters and other licensees will ultimately show fans how fast players ran, their acceleration rates, and the distances they traveled during key plays.
