The 5 Most Bet-On Football Clubs in Singapore

Sports betting is legal in Singapore. However, the only operator in the country that can legally offer such betting is Singapore Pools..


In Singapore, football is more than a sport - it's a passion that unites the nation, no matter what walk in life they're making. Football fans follow the ups and downs of their favourite teams, whether local or international, with many also engaging in sports betting to add an extra layer of excitement to the beautiful game. Certain teams from Europe capture the attention of football bettors in Singapore more than others, with these teams also among the most popular globally.

James Fuller, a betting expert for SafeBettingSites, explains the nature and popularity of online betting in Singapore in the following way:

"Legalized in 2016, online betting is a major industry in the Lion City. While Singapore Pools is the sole regulated option for placing sports bets, a plethora of bookmakers welcome Singaporean bettors, catering to fans of football, cricket, and more."

We'll be looking at five of the European football teams that Singaporeans wager on via these bookmakers, and delve into why they are so popular.

1. Manchester United

Despite the club's downturn in success over the past decade, Manchester United remains a perennial favourite among Singaporean football bettors, encouraging more online gambling than most other popular clubs. Even with The Red Devils' past and current challenges, its rich history, consistent signing of world stars and global fanbase attract significant betting interest in Singapore.

Legendary players like Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham fueled the fires in online betting's early days, while established club captain, Bruno Fernandes, young England star Kobbie Mainoo and fledgling attackers Rasmus Højlund and Alejandro Garnacho carry the current torch for sports bettors. Although the club's form remains patchy, these players inspire confidence among Singaporean bettors in team and individual betting markets.

2. Liverpool

Liverpool has traditionally had a large and passionate fanbase in Singapore, which has only grown with the success the Anfield club has experienced under manager Jurgen Klopp. Although it seems Liverpool's Premier League title chances have gone in the German maestro's last season in charge, Singaporeans will likely continue their wagering support for their team under incoming manager, Arne Slot.

The Reds' formidable lineup of attackers, including Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz, along with their high-intensity playing style, make them a compelling option for Singapore's football bettors as they seek excitement and excellent chances of returns on their bets. Liverpool's high-level performances look set to continue with Slot in charge, especially considering captain Virgil van Dijk looks to be staying at the club.

3. Barcelona

Although playing second fiddle to Real Madrid in recent years, Barcelona outdoes its traditional La Liga rivals among supporters and football bettors in Singapore. With a rich history dating back over a century, Barça boasts a passionate Singaporean fanbase due to its "tiki-taka" style of play adopted when Pep Guardiola was in charge and characterised by fluid movement and intricate passing.

While Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Xavi sparked a growth of support during Barcelona's consistently successful years, sports bettors in the Lion City have forged an attachment with the current crop of Barcelona players, with Robert Lewandowski, João Félix, Ilkay Gündogan and starlet Lamine Yamal all featuring highly in individual betting markets in betting sites frequented by Singaporeans.

4. Manchester City

Barcelona's ex-manager Pep Guardiola is now at Manchester City, the reigning UEFA Champions League title holders. Presently rated as the best club in the world, and boasting a super-striker in Norway's Erling Haaland, Manchester City's success over the past decade has encouraged a plethora of somewhat new followers in Singapore. Guardiola's style of play and ability to sign world stars has encouraged a flood of betting activity in the island country.

As The Citizens' support and success reach new heights, online bookmakers expect the wagering support to grow further still, especially with the club competing for the Premier League title again. English star Phil Foden, alongside Haaland, Belgium's supreme playmaker Kevin De Bruyne and young Argentinean JuliánÁlvarez, is a favoured Manchester City player among those frequenting Singapore's online betting sites.

5. Paris Saint-Germain

Although France's Ligue 1 is not as well supported by Singapore's punters, perennial title holders Paris Saint-Germain draws monumental support from the locals, not least as the richest club in France is often seen as a banker in sports bet permutations. With every success bringing a bigger following, PSG usurps clubs like Real Madrid, Arsenal and Bayern Munich to close out our list.

Whether the French giants can find a suitable replacement for the departing Kylian Mbappé could be crucial for the coming season, but Paris Saint-Germain is renowned for encouraging big stars like Lionel Messi, Neymar and Ousmane Dembélé to the French capital. Singapore's football bettors are well aware of Paris Saint-Germain's popularity and value in betting circles and will continue to support PSG in the future campaign.
