One of my planned projects is to fully automate football trading. I really need to track game status data (score/cards/shots/2nd half start time etc) and I'm quite happy to develop code to pull data in from external websites to feed back into my automated trading processes.

Anybody got any recommendations for external websites with the lowest latency? Preferably with global coverage of leading leagues.

flashscore.com is my go-to. Latency might be even better elsewhere, so you'd have to test that yourself, but for what it's worth, they're usually faster than tv signals, at least here in Denmark

footballratings.co.uk has all this shots on target and so on and covers 99% of matches per day and all on one page.

Thanks Kafkaesque and Footysystems. I'll check out those sites.

... all other suggestions are welcome.

Hi Wolff not sure if useful but I do notice there is significant delay between a goal being scored/red-card etc as displayed via Bet365 (live stream and score record) and Flashscore (with Flashscore being significantly delayed). But obviously Flashscore waits for the goal to be confirmed so it's always correct (I think), whereas Bet365 feeds are frequently corrected (they may use the same as Betfair actually).

Liam (or others) have you got a site you can recommend for getting started on python/API dev, i'm from a VB background with some C++ if you're unsure what level to pitch it at.

Codeacademy is good, it’s what I used to learn, I then got bored and jumped straight into developing on Betfair / web scraping.
