The first thought that comes to mind when the word football is mentioned in a conversation with a sports enthusiast in the UK, could be quite different for what a sports guy in the US thinks of when he first hears the word football. The guy in the states is thinking about the NFL or the NCAA, not about what he calls soccer.

We’d like our visitors from the UK and other countries that may be thinking world cup when we talk about football in general terms in an article or review we may be referring to American Football as it relates to the discussion at hand, but we’d like our visitors to know that we are sensetive to that and that most sportsbooks we recommend will often cater well to European visitors.

It doesn’t matter what games you like to follow or whether you are from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales or anywhere else in the world, here at Football betting World we want you to know that we will always keep our eye on the sportsbooks, making sure they are sensitive to the needs of all players in all countries.

In fact a number of the books that get our highest marks accross the board have a stronger presence in the UK than most other countries where they have players.

And to give the top 3 recommendations for sports bookies that cover UK Football the best, I would have to say is William Hill Sportsbook and Casino, Bet 365, and Bet Fred. All three have longstanding roots in the UK and in the case of William Hill and Bet Fred, they have land based (brick and mortar) betting shops around the country such as such as those on High Street.

Although Bet 365 does not have any shops on high street they do have quite a reputation and are one of the UK’s success stories in the online world.

All 3 of these books have stellar reputations in all the most important categories such as fast and friendly customer service, hassle free cash outs of winnings, responsive financial support personel, and generous and rewarding VIP Programs.

If you take a look below, we have the 3 books mentioned which recieve our highest praises. We may add more to this list over time, but would only do so once we thoroughly investigate them and make sure they do not have a lot of unsettled issues within the various player communites.
