About the SportsDB sample database
SportsDB is a sample sports statistics dataset compiled from multiple sources and encompassing a variety of sports, including football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, and soccer. It also cross-references many different types of content media. It is capable of supporting queries for the most intense of sports data applications, yet is simple enough for use by those with minimal database experience. The database includes over 100 tables and just as many sequences, unique constraints, foreign keys, and indexes. The dataset also includes almost 80,000 rows of data. It has been ported to MySQL, SQL Server and PostgreSQL.

sample directory of the YugabyteDB GitHub repository. Download the following five files.
sportsdb_tables.sql— Creates the tables and sequences
sportsdb_inserts.sql— Loads the sample data into the
sportsdb_constraints.sql— Creates the unique constraints
sportsdb_fks.sql— Creates the foreign key constraints
sportsdb_indexes.sql— Creates the indexes
2. Open the YSQL shell
To open the Yugabyte SQL (YSQL) shell, run the
ysqlsh command from the YugabyteDB root directory.
ysqlsh (11.2) Type "help" for help. yugabyte=#
3. Create the SportsDB database
To create the
sportsdb database, run the following YSQL command
CREATE DATABASE sportsdb;
Confirm that you have the
sportsdb database by listing out the databases on your cluster.
Connect to the
yugabyte=# \c sportsdb
You are now connected to database "sportsdb" as user "yugabyte". sportsdb=#
4. Build the SportsDB tables and sequences
To build the tables and database objects, run the following command.
sportsdb=# \i share/sportsdb_tables.sql
You can verify that all 203 tables and sequences have been created by running the
5. Load sample data into the SportsDB database
To load the
sportsdb database with sample data (~80k rows), run the following command to execute commands in the file.
sportsdb=# \i share/sportsdb_inserts.sql
To verify that you have some data to work with, you can run the following simple SELECT statement to pull data from the basketball_defensive_stats` table.
sportsdb=# SELECT * FROM basketball_defensive_stats WHERE steals_total = '5';
6. Create unique constraints and foreign key
To create the unique constraints and foreign keys, run the following commands.
sportsdb=# \i share/sportsdb_constraints.sql
sportsdb=# \i share/sportsdb_fks.sql
7. Create the indexes
To create the indexes, run the following command.
sportsdb=# \i share/sportsdb_indexes.sql
