Events covered include top flight football from eleven countries including Italy, Portugal and Brazil, FA Cup matches, International football, UEFA Champions League qualifiers, Europa Cup matches and Asian Champions League matches.

The new Ladbrokes.com sportsbook also incorporates improved functionality and navigation as well as a number of personalisation features. These include single click betting from every page, access to all competitions from the left hand menu at all times, the ability to save favourite events for quick access on every visit and new racing page functionality offering race by race betting. The site currently has over 500,000 active customers and offers betting in 18 languages and 18 currencies.

Commenting on the launch of the new service Ladbrokes Managing Director of Remote Betting and Gaming John O'Reilly commented: "The new site further reflects the growing importance of betting in play and live video streaming content. This initiative, together with further development of our mobile offering and the development of new markets in Europe will continue the growth of our sportsbook."
