2024 is set to be a big year for football with a variety of big landmark events happening throughout the 2024 calendar. From the major dates in the big leagues to the international tournaments, there’s going to be plenty of opportunity for putting good bets on some of the most anticipated sporting events of the whole year. Today, we’re going to look at what the biggest football betting events will be for the year, so let’s get started.
- UEFA Euro 2024
Without a doubt, the biggest football betting event of 2024 will be the UEFA European Cup. Set to take place in Germany, it will begin on the 14th of June and run for a month until the 14th of July. Germany themselves have naturally qualified automatically as the hosts and the remaining spots will be decided by a qualifying tournament in the run-up to the competition. Many venues across Germany will be hosting the games.
Punters and football bookmakers in Ireland alike will already be setting their sights on the potential fixtures and it will be one of the biggest betting events of the year, not just in football. People from all over Europe, and indeed all over the world, will be watching and betting as well as international bookmakers—this is the one you don’t want to miss.
- Final Premier League Fixtures
Of course, the English Premier League is the single biggest league in the world, and so the whole season will be full of important betting events for the football world. The biggest and most successful teams in the world will compete for the trophy and there will be a potential reach of around 3 billion people for the whole audience of the league. No doubt, then, there will be plenty of important betting events throughout the season.
The 2023-24 season has just gotten underway and the final round of fixtures will come in May of 2024, so this undoubtedly will be among the biggest football betting events of the year. Keep an eye on the Premier League all season long for great bets to make.
- EFL Trophy Final
Though not as prestigious as the Premier League, the EFL is nonetheless one of the biggest football betting events of the year and one that no doubt many will be keeping their eye on for their bets. The EFL Trophy Final will fall on Sunday the 7th of April, 2024, and will be held at Wembley Stadium in London. This will be another of the biggest events of the year and one you definitely won’t want to miss if you’re after placing a bet or two.
Again, this season of the EFL has just gotten underway after fixtures were released in June, so there’s plenty to keep an eye on in the meantime until the final in April, but no doubt that the final will be among the biggest events for football betting.
- FA Cup Final
The FA Cup final will fall not too long after the EFL Final in May of 2024, again being held at London’s Wembley Stadium and no doubt set to be one of the biggest football betting events of the year. There’s going to be a great deal of buzz around the event and so, naturally, this means a great deal of bookmakers offering great odds on a variety of markets for the game. Again, you obviously won’t get the same amount of attention as the Euros or the Premier League, but if you’re savvy and keep your eye out you may well find a lot of great options for betting on the FA Cup Final.
- Women’s FA Cup Final
Finally, we also have the Women’s FA Cup Final, set to take place in May of 2024 also around the same time as the men’s FA Cup Final, at Wembley. Women’s football is getting more and more popular every year, and with that comes a lot of extra attention from the bookmakers. The Women’s FA Cup Final is set to be another of the biggest football betting events of the year.
It’s often these slightly more niche events that can make for even better betting opportunities, as the odds may be considerably greater in your favour if you know what you’re doing. So, keep an eye on the betting markets for the Women’s FA Cup Final.
Everything from the biggest international leagues to the smaller events that are no less important for betting, then, is coming up in 2024. The Euros, no doubt, will be the biggest event of the year for football and for betting, and you’ll have no shortage of markets and games to bet on with international attention. Whatever league or event you want to wager on, then, there’s going to be plenty of choice for you.
