 End betting adverts in football
Topic Originator: Paralex

Gambling in football reinforced by adverts on shirts and on tv, is destroying family lives all over the country. Great to see Peter Shilton and Dan Walker calling for an end to it. But does money rule the sport to such an extent that the well being of the vulnerable doesn`t matter?

Football has sold its soul to gambling.

Players earn millions. Individuals lose thousands.

Do the maths

Unlikely to happen unless they are forced by government to stop it.

A couple of years ago nearly 2/3 of clubs in the top two divisions had a betting company on their shirts. 9 in the Premier and 17 of the Championship. I’ve heard that only 3 of the Premier clubs this year don’t have a significant tie in with a gambling firm.

Way to lucrative for clubs to voluntarily stop it.

I always thought it wrong that replica shirts should have sponsors names on them regardless of who they are.
Thousands of people buy them and it is free advertising even if the buyer doesn’t like them.

Ladbrokes SPFL, William Hill Scottish Cup, Bet Fred Cup. It`s as bad up here as it is down south if not worse.

I've never ever been tempted to place a bet just because a bookies is on a teams shirt.

It might influence who someone who does gamble places their bet with but I seriously doubt it is turning us into a nation of gamblers. I may well be wrong and would be interested if there had been any research done on this.

A much bigger issue was payday loan companies sponsorship they even sponsored the league in England at one point.

Hardly “free advertising” given how much the sponsor pays in order to get the name on the shirts.

SIF, I have to disagree. I think there is a massive problem with gambling bubbling under the surface in this country. I say this as someone who loves a bet but if you have a gambling problem the advertising is incessant. You`d have to essentially stop watching football and many other sports because they are constantly reminding you about all the bets you could be placing right now.

Aye but part of the financial package would be based on Fanbase purchasing said top. So if you got 100,000 fans wearing yer top then that's pretty powerful for your brand and advertising. Hence bet365 no sponsoring us. The main power in a shirt sponsorship deal is Televised matches and fans buying the top with your brand on it.

Aye it is a problem but it is one that is and can be better managed. Use of gamble aware etc etc. It does appear to be a massive issue despite the law and restrictions by apps kids are finding ways to use mainstream betting sites. It is alleged that there is 55,000 kids aged between 11-16 addicted to gambling. That's mental figures.
However same could be said for alcohol advertising in football in 90's .. But where do you draw the line?

Fags and booze were banned so pay-day loans and betting took over as the next highest bidder. Presumably MacDonald`s or Coca-Cola would offer more if they were allowed, I`m not sure?

Football has a fairly strong influence on kids and if we can recognise that linking it with smoking, alcohol and fast food is damaging to kids and needs to be curbed or stopped as a result then it`s not too much of a stretch to do the same with gambling if there`s evidence that it is also harmful.
