Football - Abandoned or Postponed Match Rules

What happens to accumulators?

If you've had an accumulator containing a postponed/abandoned match - including enhanced accumulators or the Soccer Saturday Price Boost - the bet will become the next bet down, i.e. a Treble becomes a Double etc. We cannot cancel or change bets containing postponed selections.

For details of what occurs if a match is abandoned or postponed, please consult the rules below.

Postponed Matches

If any match is postponed and rescheduled we will take the following action:

For UK competitions* and matches televised live in the UK**

If the match is confirmed to take place within 48 hours of the original kick-off time, all bets on the match will stand, unless:

  • If confirmation of the rescheduled start time is not received within 3 hours of the original kick-off time, bets will be void.
  • If kick-off time suffers from consecutive delays which take it over the 3 hour period mentioned above, bets will still stand as long as the eventual reschedule is within 48 hours of the original kick-off time.
  • If the match does not take place within 48 hours of the original kick-off time bets will be void.
  • If the selection is in a multiple bet or accumulator any refund must be requested before kick-off of the first leg of the multiple bet.
  • Where a confirmed postponed match features as part of a multiple bet, the bet will stand on the remaining selections in the multiple.
  • Please note that games which have their kick-off altered well in advance to accommodate live TV, or to ease fixture congestion will not be classed as postponed.

* UK competitions are defined as: English Premier League, Championship, League 1, League 2, National League (excluding National League North, National League South and lower), FA Cup, EFL Cup, Community Shield, EFL Trophy; Scottish Premier League, Championship, League 1, League 2, Scottish Cup, Scottish League Cup and Scottish Challenge Cup.
** UK Television channels are defined as: Any Sky Sports, Eurosport, ESPN, BT or ‘red-button’ service; any terrestrial UK television channel or ‘red-button’ service.

All other matches

  • If the match does not take place before midnight (local time) on the same day, bets will be void.
  • Where a postponed match features as part of a multiple bet, the bet will stand on the remaining selections in the multiple.
  • Please note that games which have their kick-off altered well in advance to accommodate live TV, or to ease fixture congestion will not be classed as postponed.
Abandoned Matches
  • If a match is abandoned, any bets where the outcome has already been decided e.g. half-time result or first team to score will stand. All other bets will be made void regardless of the score-line at the time of abandonment. Abandoned games will be deemed to be games which do not reach their natural conclusion by midnight local time.
  • Games where a referee removes the players from the field of play for a temporary period, but resumes the remaining minutes of play by midnight local time will not be deemed as abandoned.
