If it does turn out to be a betting firm I wouldn't buy the shirt to be honest. Ruined far too many lives, including almost mine!

I think the betting company is most likely, but would love to see someone like WMG on there. Out of their price range I'd imagine.

I can understand the issues with impulse but you can't watch a football match without seeing a logo. It is literally on the arm of the sleeve and things like this:



Not going into an area of the church from lottery funding? Not too sure about that, I am pretty sure he will be going to places, using services etc every day with some input from the lottery.
I agree it’s unavoidable at present but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t need addressing across sport. Spain for example are acting in the right way. They’ve banned gambling firms from shirt advertising next season.

The guy’s main issue with the lottery is because of the horror stories of people getting hooked on their scratch cards.

Is alcohol sponsorship banned? You used to have Holsten, Coors, Carling and the like but nothing now that I can think of
Ever'un with Chang beer.

Edit : Their last one was in 2017

Seen this circulating a lot today, is there anything to suggest it is a betting company or just speculation?

I agree that advertising for gambling shouldn't be allowed but at the end of the day this needs to come from the government. We can't be expected to put ourselves at a further competitive disadvantage because of it. Ideally if we had the luxury of choice we would but we need money.

The people moaning on facebook will be the same people frothing saying SISU NEED TO INVEST

Couldn’t agree more. It happened with tobacco so there’s no reason why it can’t happen again.

Honestly im not sure on all the melt downs on twitter. If someone wants to pay us close to 1 million to be on the shirt who cares as long as that money is used to strengthen the team.

It costs approx £200k a year to sponsor the home shirt for a team of our standing in the Championship
£320k for home and away kit
£60k for the shorts home and away

We should get Aston Martin sport car sponsor because if it wasn’t for city they wouldn’t exists, the blokes that started Aston Martin were selling singer cars down London, singer cars were Singer & Co's bicycle before, and city is the factory team, they should pay a million pound just for the story

While the Government allow it than what’s the problem and if individuals feel they can’t buy one because of the sponsor fine their choice. I suspect in time it might be outlawed but until it is carry on.
