mls-scraper

Scraper of the MLS (soccer) site's statistics since they don't like to share. So far this is mostly a proof of concept, however if you'd like to try it, it does actually work. All you need to do is point it at a post game stats summary found on MLSSoccer.com. For example, see this Fire vs Columbus Recap.

This script relies on:

  • requests
  • beautifulsoup
  • mock

Just run like so:

python mls_scraper.py http://www.mlssoccer.com/matchcenter/2013-04-20-CHI-v-CLB/stats

If you'd like to store the data this retrieves, I recommend taking a look at my mls-api project.
