UK Gambling Act Review : Football Shirt Sponsorships Facing Axe?

An upcoming review of the Gambling Act 2005 by the UK government could result in a ban on football shirt sponsorships.

Originally introduced by the Labour Party in 2005, the Gambling Act controls all forms of gambling, including sports betting, in the United Kingdom. It is expected that the upcoming review will result in more restrictive rules, particularly surrounding football.

Increasing numbers of observers are now speculating the review will specifically lead to a complete ban on English and Welsh football clubs entering into shirt sponsorship deals with betting and casino firms, and possibly further restrictions surrounding other aspects of partnerships too.
