Peterborough United Odds

As with every League One side, Peterborough United odds are extremely popular to bet on. League One is known for its inconsistencies and unpredictability and as such, it’s become an exciting if difficult division to wager on. In a league that’s difficult to judge, Peterborough United relegation odds are just as commonly bet on as odds on Peterborough United to get promoted or to win the title.

Derby matches or promotion clashes are sometimes offered as enhanced odds, or subject to other bookmaker promotions such as money back specials. For example, odds on Peterborough United v Cambridge United can be enhanced on a particular side to win, with Coral being one such bookmaker that offers this promotion on a regular basis.

Whilst betting on individual Peterborough United matches or Peterborough outright bets is a popular choice, many bookmakers also offer odds on situations that can occur off the pitch. Peterborough United manager odds or transfer odds can also provide opportunities to make profits on your football betting.

History

Peterborough United are a professional football team located in the city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. Having joined the Football League in 1960, the club have played in all but the top Football League divisions. Peterborough United currently play in the third tier of English football, League One.

The history of Peterborough United starts in 1934. The club was formed after a previous Peterborough club, Peterborough & Fletton United, had disbanded in 1932.

Peterborough United  joined the Midland League for the 1934/1935 season, and remained in this division until 1960. The club had made steady progress in the Midland League, winning the Midland League title in five consecutive years, from the 1955/1956 campaign to 1959/1960.

Peterborough United’s success helped them to be offered a place in the Football League for the 1960/1961 season. The club’s recent history of title wins continued, and Peterborough United won the Fourth Division title at the first time of asking. With that title win, the club wre promoted to the Third Division.

Peterborough United took to life in the Third Division well, with four consecutive top ten finishes. However, a series of financial problems hit the club, and they were relegated back to the fourth tier in the 1967/1968 campaign.

Six seasons in the Fourth Division ended with a second fourth tier title win, and the club returned to the Third Division. In 1978, Peterborough United came close to winning a further promotion. Needing a win to confirm promotion to the Second Division, Peterborough could only draw away at Wrexham in their final game of the season, missing out on moving to the second tier to Preston North End.

This near miss affected Peterborough United in a negative way. The following season, the club were relegated to the Fourth Division after finishing in 21st place.

 Peterborough United spent the following 12 seasons in the fourth tier of English football. Near misses with promotion were combined with close calls with relegation, until the 1990/1991 season. A playoff final victory saw the club promoted back to the Third Division, and the club achieved back to back promotions with a playoff final victory over Stockport County to see the club promoted to the second tier for the first time in Peterborough United history.

The 1992/1993 season was the first Peterborough United spent in the second tier. In time for this season, the Premier League was introduced. This resulted in the Football League divisions being renamed. The Second Division became Division One, the Third Division Division Two and the Fourth Division Division Three. As such, Peterborough United started their 1992/1993 season in Division One.

The club achieved a top ten finish in their first season in the second tier. However, this didn’t last and Peterborough United finished bottom of the Division One table. A further relegation hit the club three seasons later, and the club found itself back in the bottom tier for the 1997/1998 campaign.

The 1999/2000 season saw Peterborough United achieve another playoff final win. The club beat Darlington 2-1 in the Division Three playoff final, sealing a return to Division Two.

Peterborough United spent five years in Division Two. In preparation for the 2004/2005 season, the Football League divisions were rebranded once again. This led to Division One being renamed the Championship, Division Two League One and Division Three League Two.

During this season, Peterborough United were relegated from League One. The following campaign saw three different men in the Peterborough United manager hotseat, with Mark Wright, Barry Fry and Steve Bleasdale all spending time in the Peterborough United dugout.

After Keith Alexander was hired and fired within the space of six months, Darren Ferguson took charge of Peterborough United. Ferguson brought instant success to the club, leading Peterborough United to back to back promotions.

Back in the second tier for the 2009/2010 campaign, the club lasted just one season in the Championship. After finishing bottom of the division, Peterborough United were relegated back to League One. This season also saw four different men in charge of Peterborough United - Darren Fletcher left the club and was replaced by Mark Cooper, with Jim Gannon replacing him and towards the end of the season Gary Johnson was given the Peterborough United manager role.

Johnson didn’t last long in the job either, and was replaced by the returning Darren Ferguson. Ferguson led the club to promotion once more, with his side beating Huddersfield Town in the League One playoff final.

Peterborough United managed to survive their first season back in the Championship, but succumbed to the drop in their following campaign. They almost achieved an instant return to the second tier, but were beaten by Leyton Orient in the playoff semi finals.

Since the 2013/2014 season, Peterborough United have played their league football in League One.

Crest

The current Peterborough United crest is based on the Peterborough coat of arms. An image of the coat of arms is situated inside a circle, with the name of the club and their year of formation printed around the edge of the circle. The words ‘Upon This Rock’ are featured in a banner, these words are the club motto.

The Peterborough United football badge has always featured the Peterborough coat of arms, either fully or in part. The coat of arms features two keys, which symbolise the keys to the gates of heaven; a gold crown, which is a civic symbol; an image of towers; two heraldic lions featuring wings of eagles; and tree trunks, a representation of the estate of Earl Fitzwilliam.

The current Peterborough United football crest has featured on shirts since 2008.

Colours

The Peterborough United colours are traditionally blue and white. These Peterborough United kit colours have been worn since 1937, though in a variety of styles.

When Peterborough United were first formed, the Peterborough players wore green shirts with white shorts and black socks with a green trim. The shirt from 1934 to 1936 also featured a white ‘v’ shape across the top.

The 1937/1938 season saw the introduction of the colour blue to the Peterborough United strips. Until 1940, the Peterborough United players wore blue shirts with a white pocket, white shorts and blue and white hooped socks. After the Second World War, the club still wore the same kit except for the socks, which were changed to black with a blue trim.

In 1948, the Peterborough United team wore blue shirts with white sleeves, white shorts and blue socks. A return to a plain blue shirt occurred in 1950, with blue shirts with white sleeves making a reappearance from 1953 to 1965.

In 1965, the Peterborough United shirt changed. This shirt was all blue but featured two horizontal white stripes across the middle of the Peterborough United jersey.

1968 was the first introduction of an all blue Peterborough United strip. Shorts and socks were changed to white in 1970, and from 1973 to 1977 the Peterborough United kit consisted of a blue shirt with a white collar, blue shorts and red socks.

In 1977, the club abandoned their royal blue colour, and adopted a white shirt with light blue stripes, worn with light blue shorts and dark blue socks. This kit lasted for two years, before the reintroduction of the royal blue in 1979.

Since then, the Peterborough United kit colours have on most occasions featured blue shirts, worn with white shorts and blue socks. Shorts colour has alternated though between blue and white, and socks have been blue, white, red or blue and white hoops.

The 2018/2019 Peterborough United colours were blue shirts, blue shorts and blue socks with a white trim.

Peterborough United Stadium

The current Peterborough United stadium is the London Road Stadium. Also known as the ABAX Stadium, Peterborough United have played their home games at the London Road Stadium since they were formed in 1937. London Road was first opened in 1913, and was used by Peterborough & Fletton United until that club disbanded in 1932.

Following various redevelopments of the London Road Stadium, the Peterborough United stadium capacity currently stands at 14, 084. Following the signing of a sponsorship deal in 2014, the Peterborough United stadium is also called the ABAX Stadium.

The Peterborough United stadium layout features four main all seater stands. These are the Norwich and Peterborough South Stand, the Main Stand, the Motorpoint Stand, and the London Road Terrace.

There are future Peterborough United stadium plans, with talks of a new stadium to be constructed, replacing the London Road Stadium.

Supporters

The majority of Peterborough United supporters hail from the city of Peterborough and the surrounding areas. There are, however, a number of Peterborough United supporters clubs up and down the country, including the Peterborough United Supporters Trust, the Posh Supporters Trust.

A season later, Darragh MacAnthony took control of the club. MacAnthony bought Peterborough United for £1, under the proviso that he also takes on the club debts.

MacAnthony currently holds the positions of both owner and chairman of Peterborough United Football Club.
