The countdown is nearly over! A summer without a European Championship or World Cup can be a really boring time for football fans in England but there are now just days left until the action gets underway.
While most Premier League teams have an extra week to prepare for their top flight campaigns, the Championship gets going on Friday 4th August as Sunderland host Derby County and Nottingham Forest welcome Millwall to the City Ground.
Plenty of punters will be completing their research, whatever form that particular process takes, and placing a multiple bet regarding the winners of various leagues. Before you do though, there's a promotion you should know about.
To add to the ante post excitement, dabblebet have a fantastic pre-season offer which is available until kick off in these second tier clashes.
Simply place a league winner four-fold on the Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two of at least £10 and dabblebet will credit you with a £5 free bet in time for the start of the top flight season. Full terms and conditions here.
The win part of each way bets will also count towards this promotion so if your wager is at least £10 each way then you'll also be credited. Just make sure the bet is a four-fold on the winners of the top four leagues in England, any other selections won't qualify you for the free bet.
These are the kind of wagers that keep players dreaming throughout the regular season as they aim to hit a big pay-out from a relatively small stake.
For example, a £10 bet on the four favourites at the time of writing (Manchester City, Aston Villa, Blackburn and Mansfield Town) pays a huge £6,792. Obviously, the projected wins would increase dramatically if you want to take a chance on a bigger priced team in any leg.
Not only is this a great chance to take a longshot bet and potentially land a significant prize but there's also the boost of a £5 free bet credited directly to your account by the 11th August. All you need to do is decide what to spend it on.
Arsenal get the Premier League season going at the Emirates against Leicester while Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United are all involved in televised action across the following two days.
The free bets will be valid for seven days so if you'd rather save it for a midweek match such as the Champions League qualification clashes then you're free to do so.
Don't forget that the offer will come to an end when the Friday matches get underway, so get your four-fold placed today ahead of the big kick off.
