Blue Square Premier Football Betting
The Blue Square Premier League is the sponsorship name of the top division of the Football Conference, the semi-professional football league of England. The Blue Square Premier consists of twenty four teams, each of which plays the other twenty three opponents twice a season, once at home and once away, meaning each Blue Square Premier team plays 46 league games each season. Teams in the Blue Square Premier also play games in the FA Cup and the FA Trophy.
The team finishing top of the Blue Square Premier at the end of the season gains automatic promotion to the Football League where they start in League Two Betting. Another promotion place is also available, with the winner of the Blue Square Premier play-offs promoted to League Two.
Four teams are relegated each season from the Blue Square Premier each season. Depending on the relegated teams geographic location they are relegated to either the Blue Square North of South Conference.
Betting on Conference League Matches
Whilst betting on English football has grown massively across all English League and Cup competitions, betting on non league football has grown more than any other division. The exposure of non league football on Sky TV and more recently Setanta (before the station folded!), has resulted in a huge betting boom on football supporters placing bets on Conference games, particularly when games are shown live.
The amount of money staked on antepost betting on the Blue Square Premier for the 2007/2008 season broke all previous records and betting on weekly Blue Square Premier games continues to prove popular.
All major online bookmakers offer betting on the Blue Square Premier, with many firms offering several additional markets on all Blue Square Premier games such as correct score betting and number of goals in the game.
More online bookmakers are increasingly beginning to offer betting on more non league divisions, with Bet365 for example, betting on more than ten English non league divisions.
