Ex-FA boss hits out at football gambling deals

A former chief executive of the Football Association has claimed the sport needs to ‘wean’ itself off sponsorship deals with gambling companies.

Mark Palios said that the links between football and the betting industry have now gone ‘too far’.

His comments come after the Daily Mail revealed in January how the FA had sold streaming rights for the FA Cup to seven betting websites including Bet 365, which only made matches available if customers made a bet or paid into an account. The Gambling Commission is now investigating the deal.

Speaking to tonight’s File On 4 current affairs radio programme on the BBC, Mr Palios, 67, said: ‘I think football has to wean itself off the position it is in at the moment and that’s the best verb I can use. It’s certainly gone too far.

‘I see gambling as something that is pernicious. People get hooked into it and https://www.facebook.com/ it is a hidden addiction.’
