Don’t put your shirt on it

David Clifton is quoted in an article by Scott Longley entitled “Don’t put your shirt on it”, that suggests the lucrative partnerships between English Premier League teams and gambling companies are under threat from the triennial review and the opposition’s calls for an outright ban on shirt sponsorship.

David is quoted as saying: “With the current levels of negative public opinion about gambling — whether heavily influenced by sensationalist newspaper headlines or not — it is not altogether surprising to see politicians seizing the opportunity to jump on a passing bandwagon. The bigger threat to the industry will be the outcome of the ongoing government review into the impact of gambling advertising on children and vulnerable people.”
