Champions League Betting Offers

Champions League Betting

The Champions League, some consider it to be the football betting highlight of the year and it’s certainly a great opportunity to take advantage of the free bet offers that online bookies offer.

The UEFA Champions League, usually just called the Champions League, and previously known as the European Cup, is an annual football competition that has provided football betting fans with excitement and drama since it first kicked off way back in 1955.

Of course much has changed since then, both in the way football is played and the fact that so many free bets and Champions League betting offers are available.

But at its heart the Champions League is still one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world and the most exciting club competition to bet on in European football.

Last year's final, won by Chelsea, was the most-watched UEFA final to date and the most watched 2011 annual sporting event worldwide. An incredible 178.7 million viewers tuned in, many of them making use of the free bet offers available for the competition.

The tournament consists of a number of stages, beginning in mid-July with three knockout-qualifying rounds and a play-off round. The 10 remaining teams go on to join 22 seeded teams in the group stage where there are eight groups of four teams each.

The eight group winners and eight runners-up enter the final knockout phase, which culminates with the final match in May. With so many Champions League fixtures it may sound complicated, but on the up-side it provides loads of chances to use free bets that bookies offer.

Most online bookies offer live Champions League betting which means you can also use some of their betting offers and promotions whilst enjoying the excitement on TV.

Real Madrid has won the Champions League an incredible nine times, making it the most successful club in the competition's history. They’re up there again this year as one of the favourites, alongside Bayern, Dortmund, PSG, Juventus, Man Utd and of course Chelsea.
