While this is an unprecedented time in our political history, it is good to know that certain things have not changed. The season is about to kick off and sports bettors across the nation want bonuses, and they want them now. Well, according to onlinebettingcodes, Brexit may be causing issues but the pre-season football bonuses are just as good as ever!
This being said, why settle for one bonus when you could access two? Neds has additional promotions that are now being accessed by many other punters ahead of the 19 / 20 football season. Simply head on over to the site and kick-off your football betting campaign with any of the available bonuses for 2019.
Bonuses aside, there is a probing question on the lips of many English football fans. And that concerning question is, can English football survive the Brexit?
Implications Of Brexit On English Football
Of course, the most international league in English football is The Barclays Premier League. The league is packed with international players, as we all know. And just like any other UK based business, Brexit has caused some rather anxious times for The Premier League. So just what could we expect to see in a ‘post-Brexit’ Premier League, and in English football as a whole? The 3 most commonly discussed implications are shown below.
1. Significantly reduced trading volume of players
This has already been seen through the January 2019 and Summer 2019 transfer periods. Overall club transfers were significantly less compared to previous years. Could this be the result of clubs up and down the country keeping a very close eye on Brexit? Logically, this would be a perfectly viable reason. Why would clubs want to invest millions of pounds into players when they may be opening the door to intense visa and immigration battles?
2. An increase in participation for ‘home-grown’ players
Home-grown in this sense refers to players that have been registered with the FA for a minimum of 3 years, which in the eyes of the FA essentially makes them a British based player. This could well be a positive thing, since the focus would inevitably shift towards UK players instead of the constant scouting of international talent. More investment in English players would of course mean a better overall quality of player being fed into the international team.
3. International competition
Fans of English football have been concerned that leaving the EU may make England ineligible to play in ‘The Euros’. The good news is that at this point, UEFA has strongly suggested that EU membership will not determine whether or not a country is eligible to take part in the competition. Since The Euros is the biggest international competition for the England squad besides The World Cup, this is a huge relief!
The good news for English football fans is that Brexit (whether deal or no-deal) is unlikely to have an Armageddon-like impact. It is highly likely that the Premier League will still remain the wealthiest and arguably the most competitive league in the world, and we may even see a stronger international side!
Who knows, maybe football will be coming home sooner than we thought thanks to Brexit? We can dream!
