City Of Culture Betting 2025
The UK City Of Culture Betting is already available from the best betting sites, Southampton, Sterling, and Wrexham are at the top of the market at around 7/2.
We have had two winning cities of culture from England and one from Northern Ireland, so punters may consider that the announcement may favour a city from Scotland or Wales.
A midlands city Coventry is the current city of culture, prior to them Hull in Yorkshire was the previous recipient of the government's culture funding, this could lessen the chances of Derby and Bradford.
