Gambling company logo's are advertised and clearly displayed on team kits for multiple EPL teams and also on advertising signage around the game.It is more and more noticeable. Talking to mates from the UK they think it’s abhorrent how our national sport and its media has sold its soul to the gambling industry.
Someone (else) should start a petition
Problem Gambling will hit epidemic proportions for generations to come given the ability for Gambling Companies to invest in media saturation to target and normalise this activity most notably to children who are impressionable by nature.
I have a young child that spends time on a tablet playing games that appear innocent by nature but actually have 'Gambling Undertones' for which she boasts and celebrates about virtual tokens and money that she has won linked to games that she likes.
I have no evidence but it wouldn't surprise me if Gambling Companies and easy accessible (Free Online Children Games) work in unison with one another.
