UK City Of Culture: Perth Favourite For 2021 Crown

Perth is the 3/1 favourite with William Hill to be named as the 2021 UK City of Culture after the final list was announced on Tuesday. Coventry and Swansea are the 5/1 second favourite with St Davids 6/1.


“When we offered a market on the 2017 UK City of Culture, there was a great deal of betting activity with a new favourite almost on a weekly basis so we expect the same to happen here,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Having said that, however, Perth is the early favourite given that we are yet to have a winner from north of the border.”


UK City of Culture 2021 winner: 3/1 Perth; 5/1 Coventry; 5/1 Swansea; 6/1 St Davids 8/1 Paisley; 10/1 Stoke on Trent; 10/1 Sunderland; 10/1 Wells; 12/1 Portsmouth; 14/1 Warrington; 16/1 Hereford
