Betfair is pleased to announce that the Market Base Rate (MBR) for the 2019 AFL season will remain at 2.5%.
This change also applies to all AFL markets including futures and Brownlow Medal.
This means that clients can rest assured that the AFL will remain Betfair’s cheapest product to bet on and represent arguably the lowest take out rates across the industry.
Betfair is disappointed to announce that as a result of the National Rugby League (NRL) moving to a turnover product fee model, it is now the most expensive sport in the world. Consequently, the Market Base Rate (MBR) will be increased to 6%. This MBR change also applies to futures markets.
Betfair lobbied the NRL to reconsider this change but were unsuccessful. We will continue to work hard so that we can provide the best possible value to our customers.
