In this article we will explain our main Season Types, such as pre-season and regular-season, that are shared between sports, and also those unique cases applicable to each sport.
Season Types By Sport - Table
See the table below for what season types exist for which sports.
- For all sports, seasons are called by year, e.g. 2023.
- Sports with no season types are called using the year and the year only.
- When a season type is available but is not specified, the regular season will be returned.
- When a season type is available, it can be specified immediately after the year, e.g. 2023PRE.
Season Type Descriptions
These contain pre-season games.
Example call: 2023PRE
Regular Season (REG)
All regular season games.
As mentioned, when a season year is called without any parameter, it is effectively calling the regular season and thus the same as calling REG.
Example call: 2023
Example call: 2023REG

For more information on how games are handled within the post-season, see this dedicated guide.
