BETTING ON FOOTBALL IN SOUTH AFRICA • Wagering Strategy – Providing a Fair Return for Wagering on SAFA Events • South African Football should receive a fair return from wagering operators who conduct betting on SAFA events. • Over the last six years, South African sports betting has grown by 450% to ZAR39.7 billion at an average compound growth rate of 32.9% per annum(1). We estimate that gross return to South African wagering operators to be approximately ZAR3.5 billion(2). • The vast proportion of this betting is conducted on football 60%-90%, with international football dominating domestic events(3). • Betting on rugby, cricket and American sports (whilst being relatively small in comparison to football) comprise the majority of the remaining sports betting activity. • Currently wagering operators do not directly contribute funding the sports controlling bodies they bet on.
BETTING ON FOOTBALL IN SOUTH AFRICA • 1 Source: “National Gambling Statistics financial year ending 31 March 2018”, National Gambling Board of SA • 2 Based on an average gross margin of 8.5% on fixed odds sports betting and 20.0% on totalisator sports • 3 60% is based on the understanding that “numbers games” maybe included within “national sports betting statistics”, whilst the 90% estimate is based on national “sports betting statistics” excluding numbers games.
