Football Clubs Should Do More To Promote Responsible Gambling Messages

Gambling charity, GambleAware along with the UK’s Football Supporters’ Association have urged the football clubs to promote responsible gambling and create more awareness about the risks associated with gambling.

Recent, FSA survey carried out in conjunction with GambleAware’s ‘Bet Regret’ safer gambling campaign reveals that only 10 percent of UK football fans opine that their club is doing enough to warn them about the risks involved with gambling.

FSA chief executive Kevin Miles said: “Football clubs are not like any other business – they are an integral part of many match-going supporters’ lives and have a duty of care.

“It’s clear fans want their clubs to do more on educating their supporters about the risks of gambling and alongside GambleAware we’ll be pushing clubs, particularly those with prominent gambling sponsors, to do better.”

Commenting on the findings of the survey, GambleAware chief executive Marc Etches said: “The results of the survey highlight fans’ concerns that football clubs and gambling companies could do more to encourage safe betting and make people, especially young people, aware of the risks.”

Several top football players are also associated with gambling companies and promote their brands. The latest to shake hands with a gambling company is former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

Drogba has struck a two-year partnership deal with the online sports betting operator following which he will serve as the operator’s global brand ambassador and promote its products.

According to the reports, Drogba will specifically promote the online sports betting brand in the UK and Asia. He is also set to make appearances at the brand’s major live events.
