Worldcup Slack Bot

WorldCupBot will notify a Slack channel/group for every matches during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.

It uses the "unofficial" FIFA json API (the one used for their mobile apps).

It will post a message :

  • when a match starts
  • for every red/yellow card
  • for the half time and end time
  • and of course, for every goal

Preview

Here is a preview of the Colombia vs Japan match.

The code is ugly but it works.
