How to Play Sports

Football Rules

Pre-Event and In-Play (Live) bets on football matches apply to the statutory (90) minutes play, including injury time and added time, but not extra time or penalty shoot-outs, unless otherwise stated. If the statutory time for a football match differs from 90 minutes then stated rules will apply. For example, an 80 minute match also includes injury time and added time, but not extra time or penalty shoot-outs, unless otherwise stated.

In-Play (Live) bets can be placed once the match appears on the site. In relation to friendly matches only, these will be settled at the final whistle irrespective of whether the full statutory 90 minutes has been played.

If a match venue is changed then bets already placed will stand providing the home team is still designated as playing at home. If the home and away team for a listed match are reversed then bets placed based on the original listing will be void. We will use our best endeavours to identify on the site all matches played at a neutral venue but concerning matches played at a neutral venue (whether indicated on our site or not), bets will stand regardless of which team is listed as the home team. If an official fixture lists different team details to those listed on the Site then bets will be void e.g. official fixture specifics in the team name, Reserves/Age Group e.g. Under 18’s/Gender e.g. Women.

Time periods 41-50 and 81-90 include any added time. Events only count within the period they are taken – not awarded. Outright bets on leagues, groups, players and competitions concerning the finishing position / stage of elimination / ranking of teams and players will be determined at the end of the scheduled programme of matches (dead-heat rules apply in the event of two or more teams tying in the standings (according to official competition rules), and there will be no allowance for playoffs or subsequent enquiries by the respective competition.

If screenshots or video evidence from an official broadcaster cannot support our settlement then babaijebu will use the official league website, where applicable, to determine bet-settlement. In the absence of either, babaijebu will settle bets based on our own statistics. With specific regard to Football Statistics, the source will be the English Press Association. Related contingencies will be voided at babaijebus discretion.
