LN: Describe a day in the life of a Footy Accumulators blogger

FA: A day in the life of a Footy Accumulators blogger is a pretty hectic one! With (as previously mentioned) over 300,000 Twitter followers to interact with (we often have over 100 interactions a second on a Saturday afternoon) and betting previews to write for every English football game from the Premier League down to League 2, La Liga and the Bundesliga, there is never a dull moment!

LN: Which story are you most proud of?

FA: It’s hard to pinpoint one story we are most proud of. Obviously, being a gambling blog anything that revolves around picking a winning bet is one that gets us going. Who can forget the famous Team FA 7-folds that used to take Betfred for £1m on a Saturday?!

LN: What would it mean to win the Best Gambling Football Blog 2015?

FA: Winning the Best Gambling Blog would obviously mean a huge amount to Team FA and would add to the previous collection of industry awards we’ve won including the Best Newcomer at the iGB Affiliate Awards in 2014. It would also confirm our status as the UK’s largest Social sports betting community.
