SportsML: Open Sports International XML Standard

SportsML is the only open, global XML standard for the interchange of sports data. The initiative is sponsored by the IPTC (International Press Telecommunications Council), a consortium of the world's major news agencies, news publishers and news industry vendors that has been setting standards for over 40 years.

All standards posted at are in some way guided or influenced by SportsML.
