Betting on football in Iceland
Football's success in Iceland is due to a great national experiment that began in the early 2000s. It comprised a massive government-led investment program in youth football, a well-organized top-level training system, state-of-the-art facilities, and certified coaches at all levels — these factors have sewn the sport into the fabric of the small island nation.
Iceland has an excellent national football team, and they have qualified for the finals of major tournaments on several occasions.
Betting on the Urvalsdeild
The Icelandic Premier League season, "Úrvalsdeild Karla í knattspyrnu," takes place during the sunny summer months from May to September.
The Icelandic football league consists of twelve teams, the vast majority of which are located in the capital city of Reykjavik or in the immediate suburbs.
Teams play 22 games per season during the regular season. The league champions qualify for the UEFA Champions League, entering in the second round of the qualifiers. The teams finishing in second, third, and fourth places enter the first qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League.
Make bets on the Europa League Conference; bwin is one of the main sponsors.
At the bottom of the table, the bottom six play in the relegation pool, with the last two automatically going down to the second division. Place your bets on the 1 deild on our online sports betting platform. With two relegations amongst twelve teams, the relegation percentage is uncommonly high.
