The history of football is a long, storied, and complicated one. Kickball games in the same vein as football have existed for millennia, with the oldest one we are familiar with originating in China. In fact, this discovery has prompted quite a few Chinese people to claim that it was within China’s borders that football was originally invented.

Whether this is true or not, one thing is certain. The rules and laws of the game, as we know it today, were officially codified in the middle of the 19th century. While these first rules have undergone major revisions since their first inception, they are still viewed as the official birth of the game proper, as we know it today.

Football Today

The towering popularity of football is unprecedented in the world of sports. With over 3.5 billion fans around the globe, the game is, by far, the most popular sport in the world today. It is played on every continent, with various major football leagues existing in most countries.
These leagues draw in huge crowds of punters and fans, especially on various online betting sites, where people from all over the world congregate to place bets on all their favorite sports and leagues. Often times, punters tend to enjoy other forms of gambling as well. In the 21st century, most gambling is done online, and online casinos feature a plethora of return to player games, which feature a wide range of games for players looking to expand their horizon.

But back to football, some of the most popular leagues in the world attract punters from all around the globe. In this article, we are taking a look at a few Football Leagues that draw in the biggest crowds of fans and punters.

The English Premier League is #1

By far the most popular League in the world of football today, the English Premier League, which was first founded in 1992. In the 30 years of its existence, the EPL has quickly risen to the top most popular football league around the world, drawing in punters from the UK (naturally), the USA, and a vast number of European, African and South Asian countries. The most popular clubs to place bets on in the EPL include Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Liverpool.

The top echelon of English football, the Premier League features 20 of England’s greatest teams competing for the title. The current champions of the EPL are Manchester City, who have thus far won 5 titles, and are seemingly gunning for a 6th. The most successful club in the League, however, is Manchester United, with 13 titles under their belt.

The Bundesliga is Popular in its Own Right

The Bundesliga is the top tier of German football, seeing the best of Germany’s clubs face off in a heated battle for the title. The Bundesliga was first established in 1963, and has been going strong for the past 58 years. The clubs that have seen major success in the latest iteration of the Bundesliga are Bayern Munich, Dortmund, RB Leipzig, and Leverkusen, all of which have seen quite a bit of success in the league’s past.

The most successful club in the Bundesliga, and the current champion of it, is one of Germany’s best, most popular, and most beloved clubs, Bayern Munich. The club has won the league on 31 different occasions, and hold 31 titles as of the end of the Bundesliga 2021/22 season.

Can’t Go Wrong with Serie A

Serie A is Italy’s biggest and most popular national league, holding the number 3 spot for biggest league in the world, behind only the English Premier League, and the Spanish La Liga (another league prospective punters should check out). Active since 1898, the Serie A is over 100 years old, making it among the oldest leagues in football today.

Twenty of Italy’s greatest teams compete in the Serie A, with the most successful club in the history of the league being, unsurprisingly, Juventus, one of Italy’s most popular and beloved clubs. However, the current champions of the Serie A, are Inter Milan, who in 2020/21 won their 19th title. In the current, 2021/22 Serie A season, it is Milan that stands on top, with Inter being ranked 2nd, and Juventus holding the fourth place.
