Sky Betting & Gaming confirm the details of their latest football trading symposium led by Head of Football Trading, Andy Wright.
[dropcap]‘[/dropcap]What Are The Odds On That?’ is the title of the Sky Betting & Gaming symposium on football trading taking place in Leeds on Wednesday. Introduced by Trading Director, Ronnie Whelan and led by Head of Football Trading, Andy Wright alongside guest Tom Warburton from Genius Sports, the team will cover the full 90 minutes of the In Play Football Trading journey.
Sky Betting & Gaming is the largest online bookmaker by UK customer numbers and will draw on expertise in ‘in play betting’ and extending the customer experience from purely pre-live, by introducing greater game play and excitement though bespoke bets and rapid-fire live opportunities.
The team will also be available to discuss the unique career opportunities on offer for people interested in becoming a professional trader, a role which involves not only intense concentration and scrutiny of matches as they happen, but accurate mathematical skills and a passion for football.
Andy Wright, Head of Football Trading, said “Ten years ago the football betting experience was pre-play, odds were set manually with a pen and paper and we modelled hundreds of matches. Today, we offer markets on hundreds of thousands of football matches globally, with the suspense of shorter options and features such as #RequestABet and cashout putting customers in total control of their experience.”
