Spurs, top six clubs would support Premier League in phasing out gambling sponsors

By Eddie Razo -

The Premier League reportedly wants to crack down on sponsorships the clubs are negotiating with gambling companies. According to Sky Sports, the league is asking clubs to support phasing out shirt sponsorship with these businesses in a last-ditch action to prevent a government-imposed ban.

Under the recommendation, a voluntary ban would occur at the start of the new season but would allow current agreements to run their course, providing they expire no later than the 2024-25 season.

Nearly half of Premier League clubs had a sponsorship deal with a gambling company, and it’s a sensitive issue considering so many teams have become dependent on income from the gambling sector.

However, one football finance analyst indicated that the big six clubs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur, would be anticipated to support a voluntary ban. 

All six sides had existing shirt sponsorship deals with gambling establishments, so perhaps the Premier League hopes the other clubs would follow suit. Sky Sports adds that the league declined to comment on the matter.

By coincidence I have just started reading tales from the boot camps about Steve Claridge and he was a total gambler.£50k signing on fee – gone in 2 days at the bookies.
I have had a few good friends who have changed completely once inside a bookies.
It is just one of many horrid addictions. Luckily I dont gamble on anything my addiction is to hating the Rent Boys from the west. Everything about that club spells out S-C-U-M
(the real scum I just see as a younger brother who has got above himself silly little ((insert word here)) )
