Women's Football Betting

In the 21st century, very few areas of football have grown to the extent of the women's game. In the modern-day, the women's game is nearing the popularity of the men's game around the world after a 360% increase in viewing figures in the UK, the next step is to turn the increase in viewership into an increase in attendance. One club have shown the potential of women's football is English fourth-tier team Newcastle United Women, who had their first outing at St James' Park in May. This match attracted 22,134 fans to watch a game against local team Alnwick Town. Meanwhile, In Barcelona, the women's team saw a record 91,648 spectators in March.

Newcastle's attendance was a one-off but was just an insight into what Women's football can achieve even at the lowest level. To compare, in the fourth tier of English men's football, the highest attendance of the season saw only 18,283 fans in attendance as Bradford City hosted Carlisle.

Betting on the WSL

The WSL is one of the biggest football leagues in the world across both men and women's football. Due to the sponsorship, it is currently known as the Barclays Women's Super League, which our bettors will remember was a former sponsorship of the English Premier League which was a major coup for the WSL. The competition is run by the F.A and currently features twelve fully professional teams; however, with the rate that Womens football teams are growing, it could rise up to an increased number of teams at any point which would further increase interest.

There are two leagues in the WSL, the top league, which is the Super League and the second division which is the Women's Championship, formerly known as the WSL 2.

In this division, the top three placed women's teams qualify for the UEFA Women's Champions League with one team being relegated.

Betting on International Women's Football

Similarly to the mens game, Women's international football culminates at the World Cup. There have been eight renditions of the tournament and the United States have made the Semi-final in every competition and won on four occasions. The other nations to have won the World Cup are Germany (twice), Japan (once) and Norway (once). The next tournament in 2023, could Spain or England make their first final in history?

Another major tournament is the Women's European Championships, the 2022 edition of the tournament is the 13th in history. However, very few competitions have been dominated by one nation to the extent of the Women's European Championships after Germany won eight out of nine tournaments between 1989 and 2013, in 2017, they were eliminated by finalists Denmark who they actually share a group with in 2022. The team that finishes second in their group will also likely face England.

Bet on the Women's World Cup

Similar to the mens World Cup, Women's football has a competition that takes place every four years and is in the form of a World Cup. The best womens nations in the world across all continents face off and we often get a fantastic spectacle from the Women's World Cup.

This year, we'll see the World Cup travel to Australia and New Zealand as the United States look to become the first nation to win the tournament three competitions in a row. European Champions England look set to be the team that are most likely to stop them after two semi-final defeats in previous tournaments. The Women's World Cup is the pinnacle of Women's Football and after the success of the Lionesses in the European Championships, can they take that success to the next level?

Betting on National Women's football

In the UK, the Women's Super League is the most highly anticipated women's football tournament. Arsenal dominated the competition for the vast majority of 20 years with 14 titles and three runner-up medals during that time. However, in the modern-day, the domination of Arsenal has been stopped thanks to Emma Hayes and her Chelsea team. Manchester City are another team who have recently demonstrated its strength in the women's game. However, they suffered four runner-up positions in a row before the 2021/22 season when Arsenal overtook them and took Chelsea to the final game of the season. The league is extending constantly and with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur being joined by Liverpool, who knows what could happen. Another team to look out for is Newcastle United, currently in the fourth tier but after their extraordinary attendance, in May 2022, it is almost certain that they'll be looking to back the women's football team up the English league pyramid.

What can I bet on with Womens Football betting?

Betting markets for women's football are almost identical to that of the mens game. For example for the Women's Euros, you can bet on group winners, goalscorers, overall winners and more! Meanwhile, for the WSL, you may wish to look more in-depth at individual player markets. One of the big questions around the next season of the WSL is whether Vivianne Miedema or Beth Meed can catch Sam Kerr in the top scorer ranking. However, when talented goalscorers such as Lauren Hemp and Alessia Russo are featuring for the Manchester-based clubs, we could soon see the most competitive women's football competition in the world.

Who are the best teams in the world?

Statistically, you can check out who are the best womens football teams in the world by viewing the UEFA Women's Champions League. For example, Arsenal had a large reign of dominance in the UK but only won the UEFA Champions League once. Meanwhile, Chelsea were the only other English team to make the final in 2021. Lyon have won the Champions League the most with a record eight victories, double the amount of any other nation. They have won six out of the last seven tournaments with 2021 being the only exception when they were beaten by fellow French team PSG in the Quarter-final.
