  • Last Updated : 29 Dec, 2020

In this article, we will see how sports.py module is imported and implemented to produce scoreboard of a specified sport like baseball, basketball, cricket and many more along with other details about the sport. Code examples in the text below revolve around cricket, you can perform the same operation for any other sport.

Sport.py Scrapes data from:

  • scorespro.com
  • pro-football-reference.com
  • baseball-reference.com
  • basketball-reference.com
  • hockey-reference.com

Not all sports are supported by this module, all of which are supported are listed below along with their respective python code to reference them:

SPORT
