Robson-Kanu takes a stance against sponsoring betting operators in… / England / Premier League /


Halt there.

Welsh international Hal Robson-Kanu, who has worked for Reading, Swindon Town and West Bromwich, among others, hopes that football clubs will abandon sponsorship by sports betting operators. “I believe in the strong and positive values ​​that sport and business can offer to all of us. This is why I want to call for an end to gambling sponsorship in footballhe told The sport I love, which has given me so much, is sadly betraying a generation of young fans by relentlessly promoting online casinos. (…) As a player, I never felt comfortable walking in front of thousands of fans with betting logos on my shirt. »

The 33-year-old points to the consequences of online gambling, and calls on the British government to act. “Millions of people are burdened by gambling every year – people lose their homes, lives and familieshe continues. Ending gambling sponsorship would be a significant and iconic gesture that would show that government and football put the health of our children and young people ahead of quick profit. » This season, nine Premier League clubs will feature the logo of a sports betting operator as shirt sponsor (main or on a sleeve).

So many teams where we should not see the one who still hopes to find a club.
