UK Premier League to Ban Gambling Sponsors' Names on Shirts
The UK government and Premier League are close to a voluntary agreement to remove gambling sponsors' names from soccer shirts.
The UK government and the Premier League are close to finalizing an agreement that would see gambling sponsors' names taken off the front of soccer shirts.
The Premier League is expected to voluntarily agree to make changes to their shirts, rather than a proposed law banning gambling sponsorships of clubs.
While the plans leave the door open for gambling companies to continue their involvement with football, campaigners argue that tighter regulations are needed to protect children and vulnerable groups.
The review is expected to be published soon, followed by consultations to refine and implement policies.
