P.S.: I am not affiliated with this API. It is a third-party API used to import data into the Football Leagues plugin. Although it has room for improvement, it is still worth the money compared to other APIs in this price range.
2. Set API key and Import Settings
Go to the "FL+ Configurator" (2) >> "Import API" (3), enter your API key (4), and set the request URL (5).
If you buy a subscription on RapidAPI, set "RapidApi account" or set "Direct" if you buy a subscription in https://dashboard.api-football.com/
Then check API Import functionality (6) you want and save.
