gambling advertising in football

A group of 20 EFL and non-league clubs has written to the government requesting that all gambling advertising in football be banned.

Ministers are presently reviewing gambling regulations and are expected to release their recommendations after Easter, with a ban on betting companies serving as front-of-shirt sponsors being one of the choices.

Senior leaders in the EFL have spoken out against the proposed rule change, claiming that their cash-strapped clubs rely on revenue from gambling companies to stay afloat.

Luton Town, Bolton Wanderers, Tranmere Rovers, and Forest Green Rovers, among others, wrote to the Government on Thursday to ‘contest the premise that football is dependent on gambling advertising revenues.’
