Sports betting is fun at local sports events

Big Betflik11 chance that you are a member or a supporter of a local sports club. And when you visit the club or the club house you are probably talking or hearing people talk about professional sports events. I dare to say that 25% of those chats contain small talk about betting on sports events. Friends or team mates that are thrilled because they predicted the correct winner or correct score always want to share those stories with you. And you also want to share a winning bet with your friends, that is normal. At local sports clubs this is a very important part of the small talks during the after match drinking. And of course it is an interesting subject when you and your friends are watching a game on the big screen.

A local sports club does not earn any money when you bet on sports at an online bookmaker. But there are creative clubs that do earn money when you bet on sports. Volunteers at sports clubs can organise match bets on local teams. we call it “blind bets”. the organiser makes a list of results of the game and closes the results (you cannot see the results). Now people can choose a number of a result. Every number costs a certain amount of money. When all numbers are chosen the results are unfolded and everybody can see what results he bought. when the local match ends in your result you earn a share of the money that was collected. The other share go’s to the local sports club.

Local sports clubs can earn money with online betting
Sports clubs can also earn money when they partner up with an online betting partner. Betting partners are willing to give sports clubs a share of the betting money when clubs deliver them new players. Local clubs can use their websites or newsletter to ask members and supporters to join the bookmaker. When a member or supporter starts betting at that bookmaker the local sports club receives money from the bookmaker. An easy way of earning money when the volunteers of the clubs are smart.

Of course this money making option is only possible when the local sports club is located in a country where sports betting is legal. There are countries where online sports betting is restricted. And if you look at those countries you can see that a lot of clubs miss the income of sports betting.

Sports betting can help sports clubs getting better results
There are huge amounts of money involved in the sports betting industry. And this money is available for grab in countries that legalized online betting. When a country restricted online betting it is not possible for (local) football clubs to earn money with sponsorship deals and betting options. In my opinion this has a huge influence on financial situations and results at sports clubs. Betting companies bring in significant amounts of money to sports clubs and the clubs can use this money to strengthen their squad. They can also use the money to stay financially healthy.

Example of losing money and quality: In the Netherlands online sports betting is restricted. This means that bookmakers are not able to promote betting in this country. Famous professional clubs like Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV cannot make sponsorship deals with bookmakers because of the restrictions. For the Dutch clubs it is impossible to get the big money in and keep their players. Dutch clubs cannot pay huge wages to their players because they miss a huge amount of income out of betting partners. When a club from England, Germany or Spain wants to have a player from a Dutch club the player leaves in 99% of the cases. Clubs from the Premier league, Bundesliga and La Liga can pay higher wages because of betting money and higher TV revenues.

Sports clubs from the main competitions in the world (England, Spian, Germany) receive huge amounts of money from TV broadcasting. The TV channels receive huge amounts of money from betting advertisement and they use this money to broadcast big sports events. In the countries with restricted betting options it is impossible to pay high amounts of money for tv broadcasting.
