I’m totally new to trading so I'm not sure... is this for me?
Goal Profits is definitely for you! Everyone starts with no trading knowledge whatsoever and many members learned all of their trading skills with us. Once you have access to 'Launchpad' you will be guided through your first trades step-by-step and, if you get stuck, we'll be there to help you.
You certainly won’t be left on your own to struggle and get frustrated.
I’ve been trading for a while, will I benefit from membership?
Yes! There are a number of full-time, professional traders who are members of Goal Profits.
Many of them simply want access to Team Statistics so that they can research their own strategies much more efficiently, but the community we have built is hugely beneficial for many other reasons too. Let's face it, football trading can get pretty lonely at the best of times.
Being able to discuss strategy with other traders is extremely valuable. Much of the time, it is impossible to talk trading with friends or family because they just don’t understand what we do.
I don't know much about football players and teams, can I still trade?
Yes! In fact, some of our most successful members don't know much about football - or even like it!
It's very important to keep emotion out of trading and members who don't like football tend to find that part much easier to master. They also rely on Team Stats and make decisions purely on fact, rather than opinion, which is a definite advantage. The rest of us have to learn that side of mindset!
I’m getting on a bit, is this for me? Do you have any older members?
Absolutely! In a member survey we were pleasantly surprised to discover that a large number of our members are beyond retirement age and trade very successfully, whether it be for enjoyment or to supplement a pension income.
"Many thanks for your wonderful service, its great to think that at the age of 70 I have finally found a genuine and profitable service"

What if I don't like trading? Am I tied in to a membership subscription?
No, you are able to cancel your subscription at any time and your membership will run to the end of the current paid period. We do offer longer-term subscriptions which will save you money, but you can always switch later on once you're settled in.
Do I have to be around at certain times to follow your trade selections?
Not at all. Both Steve and Kevin post trades in the Members Area and trade them alongside members, live in the chat room. These sessions are fantastic for learning and many members enjoy them, but others prefer to trade on their own - or at different times - and this is absolutely fine.
You can use Team Statistics to select your own trades from any of the 65 leagues and there are often members in the chat room trading at different times of the day and night.
Team Stats makes it dead easy to trade, as demonstrated in these case studies:
What size trading bank do I need to start learning how trade football?
We recommend a minimum starting bank of £500/€500, though preferably £1,000/€1,000 or more.
There will be losses along the way – no trader on earth wins every time – and it is important that those losses do not dent your bank too much. When liabilities are too high, pressure increases and rational decision making often goes out the window.
It makes sense to take the pressure off, enjoy your experience and learn at a comfortable pace.
If you are serious about making a long-term profit from football trading, you will start out with very small stakes and learn all you can. You're going to make some mistakes at first, so doesn't it make sense to make mistakes which cost very little?
Even if it takes you six months to become a competent trader, think of the many years which you will then be able to profit from your newly acquired skills. Keep thinking long-term.
I think my trading bank is too small at the moment, how can I boost it?
If you need to increase your trading bank, use matched betting to do it risk-free. Everybody should do this anyway, no question. It’s free money with no chance of losing a penny and makes total sense whether you wish to go on to trade or not.
We have reviewed a couple of matched betting services and made plenty of risk-free profit. You could easily put a £1,000 trading bank together and then use that.
Here are direct links to our reviews so you can check them out for yourself:
How much profit will I make after I become a Goal Profits member?
- Do you have any trading experience?
- How quickly do you learn?
- Are you patient and disciplined, or impulsive?
- How much of a trading bank do you have?
- How much free time do you have?
- Are you determined to succeed or do you quit easily?
Everybody is completely different and it's impossible for me to tell your future.
What I do know, however, is that if you follow our advice then you stand the very best chance of making a long-term profit from football trading. We continue to see many members do just that.
Do I need a lot of free time for Betfair football trading?
There’s a popular myth that Betfair trading - especially correct score trading - means you have to sit in front of your computer screen for hours and hours. Absolute rubbish!
In the early days, I’m sure that you will want to spend a bit of time in the chat room to make sure that your trade is in the position it should be. But once you are more experienced you can go off and do whatever you like; watch TV, read a book, do housework, etc.
As long as you can hear goal alerts and you are able to adjust your positions on Betfair, there is no need to sit in front of the screen and wait for something to happen.
Of course, some traders like to watch the games they are trading or hang out in the chat room. That is absolutely fine but it is not necessary.
The Premier League ends in May... do you trade during the summer?
Yes. League football is played throughout the year around the world. During the summer there are regular matches in countries such as Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, USA, Brazil, Japan and Singapore. These are some of the best leagues for football trading!
We currently have full stats for 20 of the leagues which operate during the summer so there's plenty going on. We are not worried one bit about the Premier League taking a break.
What is Launchpad and how can it help me start trading football?
We have developed a complete football trading course which all members get full and immediate access to for no extra charge. We take you through the basics of trading, then show you how to build your own trading portfolio, fully customised to suit your trading style.
There are sections on bank management, staking, recording and analysing results, dealing with losses and long-term thinking. There are also 26 weekly modules which put your new trading skills into practice.
Members are fully supported by Steve, Kevin and 'Launchpad Mentors' who have developed into very good football traders during their time with Goal Profits.
"I've had a great week trading. I was disciplined, cut out weak trades and made by far my best weekly profit since I started trading. It's amazing to me that I made all that profit while trading for only a fraction of the time I would usually spend. Launchpad has made a big difference already and I can't thank you enough"
Goal Profits member
"Thank you for the fantastic journey I’m taking part on. You and Kevin have opened my eyes wide open. Didn’t expect to earn in my first year of trading, but you’ve made it achievable. Its been 16 months now and I learn every day. It was a bumpy ride at the beginning, seen people coming and going, people who thought it was easy. It’s not easy, if that was a case everyone would be trading. I still make mistakes, but less and less"

I'm still not sure... why don't you offer free trials?
Goal Profits was voted the best product available anywhere online in 2014, 2015 and 2016 so you can imagine how popular it is.
We received more votes than every other type of service - back, lay, betting, trading, football, horses, tennis - the lot.
If we were to open up a free trial, hundreds of new members would join overnight and we simply can't support that many with only 24 hours in a day.
Unlike many other services, you are not simply given an eBook and left to get on with it. We insist on offering first class support to every single member; it's why we keep winning awards.
You are welcome to try one of our trading systems for free. This strategy has been making a profit for a number of years, I know because it regularly adds to my own trading bank.
Just let us know where to send the strategy and it'll be right with you.
