Id say 3 hours a week wasnt enough, especially if youre only sitting there whilst hes watching football for most of it. My boyfriend and I are long distance so we only see each other every fortnight, however we do spend the weekend together when we meet. Id say 2-3 nights a week for a close distance relationship was normal. Youre not being clingy by wanting to see him more often, I think your boyfriend is being a prat and taking advantage tbh.

I can sympathise that for some football is more important, however he should be seeing you more and bit fitting you around his friends you should be the centre of attention-perhaps you are the other woman?

I see my boyfriend 2-3 days a week, occassionally more. On those days we usually spend most of the day together.
3 hours is definitely not enough! I think it's ridiculous that he's called you clingy for wanting to see him more than 3 hours a week! Hasn't he even invited you out with his friends? Have you met them?
He shouldn't be breaking off time with you to make sure he is back in time to see his friends in a bar. I wouldn't let my boyfriend hear the end of it if he did that lol I'm sure he could have 1 week off from seeing them or else be late meeting them, or else take you with him!

Unless your relationship is extremely casual, I wouldn't say 3 hours a week is enough to maintain/build any lasting connections or feelings. How long have you been together, OP?

awkward moment when he has a better relationship with football than his girlfriend..

weve been together 2 years we use to not see each other much before maybe 2 evenings a week but its increased even further as he just seems to want to see his friends more.
Why is he even going clubbing if his friends have gone home to their girlfriends? I'd be more than annoyed, I'd be suspicious. It sounds more like he's making time for another woman. Do you ever go out with him and his friends?

Let's be honest, he can't be that into you if everything else is more important to him than seeing you.
I'd hate seeing my girlfriend just three hours a week.

I could not imagine seeing my boyfriend for such a short time every week. Me and my boyfriend spend at least 2- 3 nights a week with each other.
Seems like he has other commitments, that to be honest shouldn't be more important than you.
A relationship is about dedication and trust and I certainly wouldn't think this of my relationship if I only had three hours a week with him. If you want it to work out maybe suggest a sit down and have a good discussion on how your feeling, and that 3 hours isn't a normal amount of time for most couples.

I'm in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend and only see him every few weeks and it sounds like I spend more time with my boyfriend than you do!
Where do you see this relationship going? If he can't bear to spend more than three hours/week with you, how much fun do you think it's going to be to live with him? Or having a family with him? He doesn't sound like a suitable candidate for either situation and, although that's not the only reason to have a relationship, you should think about the future and what you want from him.
In my opinion, it's not even a question of how much time you spend together. He just doesn't seem to be interested enough in you or to care enough about you for this relationship to work. It doesn't sound much like a relationship anyway.
In short, you're not being clingy, but you should think carefully about the kind of relationship you want for yourself.
