League Two strugglers:
For its part, Notts County was established in 1862 and is widely recognized as the world’s oldest professional league soccer team. Nicknamed ‘The Magpies,’ the Nottingham-based team plays its home games at the 19,800-seat Meadow Lane Stadium and currently sits bottom of League Two after managing to amass only 20 points from its first 26 games.
Kirsty Edwards, Commercial Director for Notts County, described Football Index as ‘one of the most innovative and exciting products on the market’ before declaring that she was ‘really pleased to have formed a partnership with’ BetIndex Limited.
