Betfred was founded by Fred Done and his brother Peter. They started out with a single shop in Ordsall, Salford, back in 1967. The funding for this venture interestingly came from a substantial bet placed on England to win the World Cup. Rapid expansion was enjoyed over the coming years and to date they now have close to 1380 betting shops. Whilst their roots lie in Manchester, they have took their head office over to Warrington. Their swift progression has seen huge annual turnovers that have surpassed £8 billion. One of Betfred’s key acquisitions has been the Tote that was established by Winston Churchill in 1927. This brand is active online as Totesport.
Victor Chandler (BetVictor) will always be seen as a key rival. This is more so a personal one after Done famously lost £1 million to them on a Man Utd bet during the 2004/05 Premier League season. As far as retail goes, fierce competition is faced from Coral and Ladbrokes (same owner), Paddy Power and William Hill. The future of betting of course flows through the web. For this pathway they launched www.betfred.com back in 2004 and today this is the 7th most visited online bookmaker according to Alexa data (UK visits). They may be losing ground to the likes of Bet365 and Sky Bet, but they are ranking ahead of such big players as BetVictor and Ladbrokes.
