Did you know that in the opening round of Premier League games last season, that 27 goals were scored? Probably not. However, it is an important fact because of BetFred’s latest promo offer.

The Premier League starts back Saturday 12th September. The opening weekend has eight fixtures scheduled and BetFred wants to give you 50p for every goal scored. Of course, it’s a promotion so there are some small obstacles to claiming the money!

They have decided to tie this offer in with their Virtual Sports. Now I know this may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but there are plenty of virtual sports fans. So if you’re one of them then this will be right up your street.

What Do You Have To Do?

The process to getting 50p for every goal scored is simple.

  • Opt In and Bet £35 on Scheduled Virtual Sports
  • Earn 50p in Free Bets for each goal scored during the opening weekend of the Premier League.
  • All Free Bets will be credited before 15:00 Tuesday 15th September

Now admittedly, if only 27 goals were scored again you would get back £13.50 which falls a long way short of the £35 you have to spend to qualify. However, if you had already planned to bet on Virtual Sports then this is a no brainer.

It’s also a good way to introduce yourself to Virtual Sports and get a bonus in return.

Games Included In The Promotion

As mentioned above there are only eight games in the opening weekend of this season’s Premier League. That’s because Manchester United and Manchester City were given a few days longer off due to their European games. So instead of 10 games, we only have eight.

So these are the games that are included in the promotion:

  • Crystal Palace v Southampton
  • Fulham v Arsenal
  • Liverpool v Leeds Utd
  • Tottenham v Everton
  • West Brom v Leicester City
  • West Ham v Newcastle Utd
  • Brighton v Chelsea
  • Sheffield Utd v Wolves

Terms & Conditions

Like all promotions, this too comes with a hefty does of terms and conditions. The good news is that they are bog-standard and shouldn’t cause too many issues. But just in case, here they are:
