Vernons’ Long History Made Them One of the Best Sports Betting Sites Online

Vernons is one of the best sports betting companies online and has a long history of sports tips.


Vancouver, BC, 4 December 2021— Cricket and football are two of the most popular sports in the world. Millions of people follow the thousands of teams and players. It goes without mentioning that these two sports are also two of the most betted sports in the world. Vernons is considered to be the leading sports platform online. It has a long history richly intertwined with the sports of cricket and football.

Vernons found its inception way back in 1887 when the Cricket & Football Field newspaper introduced to its readers its first-ever football tipping competition on its September issue. The publication offered a reward of one guinea for participants who could predict the results of the upcoming matches. Obviously, this lead to other newspapers following suit, and as more and more jumped into the tipping bandwagon, tipping became quite popular especially in the sports of football. A provincial Sunday newspaper in England even raised its top prize to £300 for the accurate predictions of six football matches. This decision led to an enormous increase in the sales of their paper copies.

In 1922, the football pool originated due to the enormous success of tipping competitions. The betting pool began when tipsters were allowed to bet on the outcome of football matches for an entry fee. The winner has a chance to take home the pool money, minus a small percentage to cover the cost of management. It was in 1923 when three friends launched Littlewoods Football Pool after Hughs acquired one of Barnard’s pool coupons. The three of them rented a small office in Liverpool and started printing their own coupons. It soon became a one-man operation towards the end of the following year when Moores, one of the original founders of Littlewoods Football Pool, bought out two of the other founders. The business eventually found success and transformed Moores into a millionaire by 1930.

Even before football pools became a thing, betting was only legal when it comes to horse racing. Littlewoods Pool was named after one of the founder’s aunts who raised him as a child.
