Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
The Volleyball Landesverband Württemberg (VLW) is responsible in organizing official Volleyball competitions in Württemberg, Germany.
They provide game data via XML, thus enabeling interested Clubs to display customized score tabs, results, next game announcements and season schedule on their website.
This module is written primarily for the needs of my local club FV Tübinger Modell, but may be usefull for other Clubs as well.
This module also features integration to the (restricted) XML game data service of the Deutsche Volleyball Liga (DVL) for the 1.Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga. The submodule for including the new "Dritte Liga" will be included till Sept.2013, since our site depends on it.
FIVB and therefore DVL/DVV changed to a new score scheme, all XML interfaces will change, once the dataprovider issue a new xml scheme (scheduled for August 2013).
history of this project
I started a similar module with Drupal5 (only VLW part) but did a rewrite for Drupal6 due to upgrade problems. I needed support for germanwide 2.Bundesliga in 2012, which resulted in restructuring this whole thing into one main and two submodules. Since the inclusion of the germanwide submodule, this project is now interesting for many more clubs, not just my own. This is why I decided to make it public.
