The gambling industry in the UK has thrived as the popularity of the English Premier League competition has increased in recent decades. As other countries thrive to survive in the gambling sector such as the situs judi slot online, the ‘sports betting’ company, the English Premier League competition, is the only industry that dominates the partnership of the Queen Elizabeth land clubs, as well as annexing broadcasting rights to soccer matches.

As a result, the government did not remain silent, through the State Secretary for Culture, Media and Sports, Nicky Morgan called on the English Football Association (FA) to immediately reconsider its resolution to sell off FA Cup broadcast privileges through third parties to gambling sites or portals.
Since the start of last season, the bookmaker website Bet365 has had the broadcast rights to broadcast FA Cup matches on its website and applications. Several matches are available for anyone who has placed bets or made a deposit on their account within 24 hours before kick-off starts.
The gambling industry has been endemic since 2005 through rows of advertisements displayed during a competition. When the UK Gambling Act allowed TV betting advertisements on TV, it has inevitably been since the betting ad has never departed from a football match.
During that time gambling houses poured billions of pounds into buying advertising spots on TV and these expenses will continue to rise. The impact is happening at this time by expanding production of gambling houses in the official broadcast of football matches in England.
This was admitted by Sports Minister Nigel Adams who said the gambling scene had changed since the agreement was signed in early 2017. All body sports, even football, need to pay attention to the big impact related to the problem of gambling.
Broadcasters clearly have no authority in the football arena, but their influence cannot be taken lightly. Meanwhile, the FA in its statement will cut ties with gambling companies in July 2017, but this agreement was made in January 2017.
Meanwhile, FA believes that Bet365 obtained these rights from IMG to be used since the beginning of the 2018/2019 campaign. On the other hand, former Sports Minister Tracey Crouch, claimed he was very uncomfortable and disappointed with the sale of football broadcast rights to gambling houses.
Crouch, who resigned from his post in 2018 explained the FA always gave the impression that they were aware of the problems associated with gambling. On the other hand, Bet365 provided an explanation if they did not sponsor the FA or the FA Cup and did not have a direct commercial agreement with the English Football Federation.
