You’ve already seen that Goal Profits has won multiple awards for our Betfair football trading community – but who are we? And how did we get here?
Well, we’re Steve and Kevin, and we started out as a pair of football-mad tipsters.
We thought our football knowledge alone meant we would rock the football betting world and we’d soon be able to give up our day jobs. You can probably guess how that turned out...
So what changed? Well, once we got serious and developed a strategy, we saw our results improve almost instantly.
We became certain that it was strategy more than knowledge about Wayne Rooney’s goal-per-game ration or how many matches Bournemouth draw at home that mattered. Then we turned ourselves from football tipsters into football traders.
We still love our football, but now we love our profits too. And we love to share our know-how with our members.
We have developed further strategies that cover all types of football trading and these sit at the core of our community of football traders; we support each other and this helps us all improve our results.
That’s why we’ve won the awards and why we’re proud to say that we’ve built our successful trading community from the ground up.
Frequently Asked Questions
Football trading itself should not be over-complicated; but we understand that you are probably on a search for the best option possible to help you develop as a football trader.
The following questions are the ones that we get asked most frequently by members – before or just after they become members.
We hope they are enough to convince you that Goal Profits is your BEST OPTION. But if you’re still left with questions, please send us an email and we’ll get back to you – almost always within 24 hours.
I’m totally new to trading... is this for me?
Goal Profits is definitely for you! Many members have learned all of their trading skills with us. Once you access '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... how can you help me?
Several full-time, professional traders are members of Goal Profits. Many simply want access to Team Statistics to research their own strategies more efficiently, but the community also provides valuable support. Let's face it, football trading can get pretty lonely sometimes!
Being able to discuss strategy with other traders means you get intelligent insight from those who understand what you do.
What do I get when I join Goal Profits?
All Goal Profits members receive full, immediate access to:
- A 26-part 'Launchpad' all-in-one football trading course
- Unlimited support from professional traders and 'Launchpad Mentors'
- Unique Team Statistics software, which covers every fixture in over 60 leagues worldwide
- 28 effective football trading strategies and advice on how to best profit from them
- A members-only forum for discussing strategies or football trading in general
- A trading chat room which is very active in-play and provides instant support
- Videos of live trades with full commentary of what we are doing and why
- Correct score and in-play football trading selections from professional traders
That’s pretty much everything you will ever need to trade football profitably on Betfair!
I don't know much about football - can I still trade?
Yes! Some of our most successful members don't even like football!
It's important to keep emotion out of trading; members who don't like football tend to find that part much easier to master. They rely on Team Stats and make decisions purely on fact, rather than opinion, which is a definite advantage. We can all learn a lot from this mindset!
I’m getting on a bit... is this for me?
Absolutely! A recent member survey showed that a large proportion of members are beyond retirement age and trade very successfully, whether for enjoyment or to supplement pensions.
"Many thanks for your wonderful service, it’s great to think that, at the age of 70, I have finally found a genuine and profitable service"
– Michael, Goal Profits member
What if I don't like it? Can I cancel my membership?
Yes, you can cancel your subscription at any time. Your membership will run to the end of the current paid period. You can always switch later to a longer-term subscription that saves you money, once you're settled in.
Do I have to be around at certain times to follow your trade selections?
No. Both Steve and Kevin post trades in the Members Area and trade them alongside members, live in the chat room. Many members enjoy and learn a lot from these sessions, 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 members in the chat room trading at all times of the day and night.
Team Stats makes it dead easy to trade, as demonstrated in these case studies:
What size trading bank should I start with?
We recommend a minimum starting bank of £500/€500, though £1,000/€1,000 is preferable.
No trader wins every time. It’s important that the inevitable losses do not dent your bank too much. When liabilities are too high, pressure increases and rational decision making often goes out the window.
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. Any mistakes should only cost you a little and, even if it takes you six months to become a competent trader, consider the many years of profit ahead. Keep thinking long-term.
How can I boost my trading bank?
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.

How much profit will I make?
Any trader will tell you that there are no guarantees. It depends on the following:
- 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 to predict your future. However, if you follow our advice then you stand a great chance of making a long-term profit from football trading, just like many of our members.
How much time do I need?
Betfair trading – including correct score trading – does NOT mean you have to sit in front of your computer for hours.
You’ll probably want to spend a bit of time in the chat room early on, 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 while the games are on. Just make sure that you can hear goal alerts and adjust your positions on Betfair. Some traders like to watch the games or hang out in the chat room, but it’s not necessary.
Launchpad Mentors Tim and Bryn learned how to trade while working 60+ hours per week and spending time with family. If they can do it, so can you! Click here for their advice.
Do you trade during the summer when there is no Premier League?
Yes. League football is played throughout the year around the world. During the summer we trade on matches in Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, USA, Brazil, Japan and Singapore, which are some of the best leagues for football trading.
We currently have full stats for 20 leagues that operate during the summer, so there's always plenty going on.
What is ‘Launchpad’ and how can it help me start to trade?
Our complete football trading course is available to all members for free, with immediate access after joining up. We take you through the basics of trading and show you how to build your own trading portfolio, fully customised to suit your trading style.
This includes bank management, staking, recording and analysing results, dealing with losses, and long-term thinking. 26 weekly modules show you how to 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"
– Jim, 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. It’s 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"
– John, Goal Profits member
Do you offer free trials?
Goal Profits was voted the best trading 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.
Why not try one of our trading systems for free. This strategy has been making our members profits for years - and you can try it risk-free.
What do I need in order to start trading with you?
You just need a Betfair account, a membership account with Goal Profits, time to learn the strategies, and the patience to pick out your trades. You can join and try out a trading strategy for free or sign up for full membership.
Do you take a percentage of my winnings?
No! The only fee EVER paid to us is the monthly, quarterly or annual fee you select from the membership options.
Do you really have members who have given up their day jobs?
Yes. Quite a few of our full-time members have already become professional. Other members use the strategies from Goal Profits to generate an additional income. Whatever your trading goals, we aim to help you get there.
