Betfair is the trading name of Betfair Limited, which was founded in August 1999. Unlike fixed odds bookmakers such as William Hill, Ladbrokesand Coral, Betfair is a betting exchange, allowing customers to choose whether to back a selection or instead effectively act as the bookmaker themself and lay a selection instead.
The first ever sporting market traded on betfair was the 2000 Oaks and, in the space of seven years, betfair has become the world's biggest betting exchange and effectively revolutionised the betting industry in the process.
Twice been named the UK’s “Company of the Year” by the Confederation of British Industry, Betfair has also won two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, recognised for Innovation in 2003 and for International Trade in 2008.
