Import data from "api-football.com" (v3)
1. Choose API Import subscription plan at api-football.com
Go to https://www.api-football.com/pricing and select the subscription plan you want.
For most users, a PRO plan will suffice.
Recommended using a direct subscription - https://dashboard.api-football.com/register
After registration, you are on a Free plan with 100/requests per day and some limitations per minute/hour.
To buy a subscription see the screenshot below.
P.S.: I am not affiliated with this API. It is a third API used to import data into Football Leagues plugin. It is not ideal but worth the money (compared to other APIs in this price range).
2. Set API key and Import Settings
Go to the "FL+ Configurator" (2) >> "Import API" (3), enter your API key (4), and set the request URL (5).
If you buy a subscription on RapidAPI, set "RapidApi account" or set "Direct" if you buy a subscription in https://dashboard.api-football.com/
Then check API Import functionality (6) you want and save.
If you plan to use advanced club and players statistics, go to the "Settings & Tools" >> "FL+ Statistics":
- for the club statistics >> click "Add Them All" in "Available API Club Advanced Statistics"
- for the player statistics >> click "Load API Stats Structure"

Import Regular Round-Robin Competition
Tutorial - API Import Configuration: Round-Robin Competition (like regular national league)

I can use the free plan, to add a championship to test ?
How do I choose a league with the free plan?
Yes, you can use a free plan. But do not import players because it requires a lot of requests. And use a direct subscription (not rapid-api).
Follow the tutorial above.
How to add the channel name that streams the match. Ex.: Eurosport, fox tv and so on
I'm suddenly having a problem!
Request failed with status code 400Error/Missing application key. Go to https://www.api-football.com/documentation-v3 to learn how to get your API application key.
i am thinking to build my app on this widget and API. Is the project still alive? Lookes like they stopped responding a year ago
Is 1GB DB enough for the project? What is the rule for past and future fixtures? What I mean is. How far in the future will the fixtures be loaded and at what point will the past fixtures be deleted?
