hello, is there such service where, let's say, for English premier league soccer, i can dynamically get list of teams and scheduled matches (past/present/future) , and result of played matches. commentary/news on the match will be a big plus. i don't mind a paid service. i'm hoping to use soap/webservice or http-post communication

Look into RSS feeds, you can grab news feeds from different sources, which are transfered as XML and you can use them, i'll try and gather some info on them

Here is a good explanation of them

i do not want rss feeds, cause they are just links
i want full content

Commented:
they are not links, you can grab the XML by creating an object to do so (cant semember which one) and display it on your page, who told you they are just links?

Why don't you look into it

Commented:
You can use simplexml for that (PHP5)

rss feeds xml contain a short description and http link to the full content. therefore, virtuall all rss feeds are links

You cant expect it all to be done for you!  Fait enough if you have a link but its you using an OO language like C# or Vb.Net it wont be difficult to invoke the Url that is supplied and manipulate the HTTP response stream using HttpWeRequest/Response and display it however you want!

Anyway sounds like you want a simpler solution, which you have above, good luck

apresto

Using rss feed is bad idea and it's not what you need.
You need actual data.
