About Betfred Sportsbook
UK Based bookmaker Betfred was established in 1967 as a single betting shop in Salford and is named after its co-founder Fred Done. The company has gone from strength to strength in recent years thanks largely to an excellent marketing campaign featuring Fred Done himself. Fred has become well known for his excellent bonus offers and is now a firm favourite with punters. Betfred really caught the public’s attention back in March 1998 when they paid out early on Manchester United winning the Premier League only for Arsenal to make a late charge and beat Utd to the title by one point.
Betfred also sponsor a number of horse racing and other sporting events including the World Snooker Championship. This year, the company successfully bought The Tote in a deal worth £265m, cementing their position as one of the leading bookmakers in the UK.
