FIFA Betting & Live Stream: How To Watch & Bet On FIFA Esports

Leigh Copson /

The FIFA football franchise remains one of the biggest in all of video gaming, and of course that means it is the subject of a host of Esports leagues. Bookmaker bet365 has the biggest and the best FIFA leagues covered, offering the opportunity to bet on and watch live streams of matches via its website.

FIFA Betting & Live Stream: What Is FIFA?

Football is the most popular sports game on the planet so there has never been a shortage of video games covering the genre, but EA Sports became the first developer and publisher to land an official license with football’s governing body, FIFA, back in 1993.

The rest, as they say, is history with the franchise growing in popularity each and every year. Technological advancements have resulted in slicker graphics and more life-like players each year, and loyal fans continue to snap up the latest version of the game so they can play as their favourite football stars from across the globe.

In 2018 FIFA entered the Guinness World Records list as the best-selling sports video game of all time, and it has now sold well over 260 million copies to become one of the most successful video games the industry has ever seen.

The firm offers customers the opportunity to bet on matches, both pre-game and in-play, as well as the opportunity to watch FIFA live streams via its website.

If you do not have one, it could not be more straightforward to sign as long as you are at least 18 years old, and when you do sign up and start betting you could become eligible to claim up to £100 in bet credits from bet365. Sign up, deposit £5 or more to your account and bet365 will match your qualifying deposit in Bet Credits, up to £100, when you place qualifying bets to the same value and they are settled.

Once you have met the qualifying conditions, you can use your Bet Credits to stake bets without risking your own cash. Bet Credits can be used on any sport across a wide range of markets and any returns from bets placed with Bet Credits are added to your Withdrawable Balance – returns exclude your Bet Credits stake. You can also fund a bet with a combination of Bet Credits and cash.

How To Claim Up To £100 In Bet Credits

  2. Register for a new account
  3. Claim the offer after making a qualifying deposit.
  4. Place qualifying bets to the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100) and allow these bets to settle.

  7. If you do not claim the offer at the time of your first deposit, you can do so at any time within 30 days of registering your account. Simply go to the Services menu, choose My Offers then click Claim Now for the relevant offer. If you make multiple deposits before claiming, your largest qualifying deposit will count towards the value of your Bet Credits (capped at £100).
