This is an archived WebSchemas proposal Sports schema for schema.org. See Proposals listing for more. Note: active schema.org development is now based at github


Collaborative work towards an extension to schema.org supporting more detailed Sports semantic annotation scenarios.

UPDATE: September 2014 - the vocabulary around sports agents (organizations / athletes) was isolated into a derivative work and a new proposal section was added below with a reference to version of this derivative proposal.
