If I wanted to place a bet such as
Me being the 1st Wirral/Birkenhead man to go into space
or
that my grandson age 7 son would play football for a PREMIERESHIP club or England

Who and how would I have to contact and get odds.
Tried googling and am no wiser

I once walked into William Hill's and put money on a horse in the Grand National wearing a clowns outfit. That was my silly bet.

phone a bookies, they will have to take your details, probably ring their head office and will get back to you with odds.

they won't be that good on the grandson playing for a premiership team though.

I'd have thought you would get better odds now than over 30 years ago when there weren't as many foreign born players playing as today
What do you think would be the odds

Population of the UK divided by number of Premiereship players or in England team population divided by number in an English team squad

bookies will look at it from how much money they can get from you but without giving you such good odds that if you did win the bet they would have to pay out a large sum.

would be surprised if you got more than 5-1.
