    Betting League of Ireland

    What happens with the live betting in the league? I have realized many matches specially from first divison aren't offered in live betting.

    Today for example very very few bookmakers have the Dundalk match.
    Is there some special regulation that doesn't allow betting in the first division?
    On the other hand there are more and more games offered from the LSL

    Probably due to streaming of the games and the risk that someone in the ground is getting in ahead of the stream on live bets.

    So in general what happens is that companies like Perform Group (https://www.statsperform.com/betting...ultrafastdata/) employ 'Scouts' at games to input match data into a device similar to a mobile phone.

    Perform will have deals with bookmakers to sell this "Live Feed" for them to be able to offer in-play odds on the matches.

    What I imagine is happening now is that because of these crowd restrictions these "scouts" are unable to get into the matches and so there is no live data feed for bookmakers to use.

    For LSL games there isn't really an issue at the moment.

    Yep - tonight it looks like Crumlin United v Colepark United is going to be available. This is from the Saturday Major Division so these bookmakers don't even realise that this is actually Crumlin United Reserves!

    It sounds a bit stupid that these "scouts" can not access to the stadiums. The industry moves so much money. The league should profit from it! Just look for a company to partner with and charge them to have the games in exclusive!

    I think the league is better off not getting too far into bed with betting companies tbh.

    (Anyway, it has an agreement with Trackchamp for that kind of reason)

    As stated above the trackchamp deal means other companies are excluded already. Also balls to putting a betting guy in ahead of any of our season ticket holders.
