How to use the Infinite Athlete Integration

Understanding the Infinite Athlete Integration:

The Infinite Athlete integration serves as a continuous content stream that delivers Play by Play highlights, primarily for American Football. Integration with Soccer is on the horizon, but for now, its primary focus remains on American Football and its integration with Slate.

How to use the Infinite Athlete Integration

Setting the integration up is easy!

  1. Users will request access to the Infinite Athlete integration from the integrations area in the brand dashboard.
  2. Once we’ve received your request, our CS team will acquire an API key from Infinite Athlete to grant you access.
  3. Once you’ve got access you’ll then be able to connect and disconnect the integration as you wish.

Note: Only admins on brand accounts can give creators access to the integration


Navigating the “Plays” Feed:

Upon activating the Infinite Athlete integration, users will encounter a feed labeled “Plays”. What are “Plays”? They represent significant events during a football game. Examples include Turnovers, Rushes, Touch Downs, Conversions, and more. Each Play in the Infinite Athlete Integration feed contains video content of the same in-game moment from multiple angles, as well as important descriptive text and metadata to provide context.
