Automated Updates The flexibility of the API means that you can request and display the information relevant to your audiences at any given time Live Statistical information View and compare detailed data on players and teams, updated in real time Linked Media Automatically collate and display rich media including images and video through the use of metadata rather than content management systems

Match day – live head to head Use the API to create views of live statistics and allow users to compare players in real-time
Team statistics Use linked data to create powerful, data rich destinations for teams or players that could work as standalone products on multiple platforms Player statistics with active player (Wayne Rooney) stats and profile in more depth – updated live in-game Immersive team stats allow fans to drill into games played during the season within a product environment that is endlessly linked
Player profiles All of these elements could be powered by PA data delivered via an API, so your site is fast, accurate and updated automatically, freeing up your team to focus on creating additional content In-depth player stats mixed with contextual links and editorial allow publishers to own a data-rich, real-time destination for players that goes beyond traditional player profile pages Competition statistics – compare performance across competitions or use other metrics, e.g. time.
