Football operations

Fetch football data from the Fans United Football API

Football operations are responsible for communicating with the Football API.
Each method also converts your IDs to the desired ID provider for easier and quicker development.
Depending on the language set in your SDK configuration, the names in the responses will be returned in the corresponding language, if supported.
If a particular name is not translated, the language falls back to English.

The namespace is of course called football. All methods return promises. The general design of the namespace follows this pattern:

sdk.football.someMethod(filtersObject).then((responseObject) => {
    // do something with responseObject
});

The responses are comprised of different objects you can find here.
