We all have our rituals this time of year. For some of us, it’s as simple as eating our weight in candy bars. For others, it’s ringing up relations to spread a little holiday cheer. But over here at Slots Call, one of our favorite things to do is check out the action happening over the pond with English Christmas sports events.
And you never know, we might even be tempted to place a few wagers on the outcomes of these events too… So if you’re interested in getting seasonal, English style, read on to discover what English Christmas sports events you can look forward to over the next few days.
What are the best English Christmas sports events this year?
We are creatures of habit, so the English Christmas sports events we’re going to be focusing on are highlights for us pretty much every year. Even if you’re new to these sports, we reckon you’ll get a lot of fun out of keeping up with the action here too…
Darts is a peculiar sport, we’re not going to lie. It might not see very physically challenging. It might be dismissed as a bar sport by many. But trust us, the level of skill and devotion top level darts players display can be breathtaking.
And what better way to become accustomed with this game than to see the real masters at play. There is no better place for this than the 2021 PDC World Darts Championship, currently underway in London.
It started mid-way through this month and is fast approaching its exciting finale. This Sunday, 3 January, we’re going to be finding out who is going to take the crown and walk away with the top prize of £500,000, which is an unbelievable $670,000.
English Premier League
Probably the best known export from the United Kingdom is soccer. The English Premier League sports some of the biggest name teams in the whole world. And that’s why when we tune in over the festive season, we know we’re going to be in for a hell of a ride.
There are a couple of games taking place today, but all eyes will be on the massive 2 January line up. On Saturday, 10 matches are taking place all at the same time. That’s 10:00 ET in the morning. If you’re a soccer fan, it’s worth getting up extra early to catch all the action. To be honest, even if you’re not, now is the perfect time to start seeing what all the fuss is about.
Where can I bet on English Christmas sports events?
The answer to this question is obviously dependent on where you’re geographically located. Legal sports betting in the United States, as many of you already know, is on a state by state basis.
Availability is increasing all the time, which is great news for sports fans. But we’re going to give you just one example of a great place you can wager on English Christmas sports events in America. And that is FanDuel.
