Online Casinos and football shirts

Football clubs and gambling companies are predicting a black market in children’s replica shirts after the gambling industry bowed to government pressure and agreed not to allow their logos on the junior kits of the clubs they sponsor.

The move could affect future shirt sponsorship in League football which is increasing.

Huddersfield are now sponsored by Casino Red.

Major clubs are also gambling sponsored such as Mansion sponsored Tottenham Hotspur, 32Red Casino Villa, 888 Middlesbrough and Bet24 Blackburn.

Also of interest is that the Portman Group, representing the drinks industry, announced a tightening of its voluntary code that removes alcohol branding on children’s replica shirts. Everton, Liverpool, Celtic, Hibernian and Rangers all have drinks sponsors.
