With Safer Gambling Week set to kick off tomorrow it is likely that there will be a flurry of support from operators and affiliates alike. This morning, Coventry City FC, who’s main shirt sponsor is BoyleSports, today announced their support for the initiative.
As announcement on the club’s website explains, Safer Gambling week is an awareness campaign designed to get people in the UK talking about gambling addiction.
The club will be promoting the hashtag #SGWeek20 on their matchday screens, on the club website and all forms of social media.
They also highlight the 5 key examples of responsible gambling behaviour:
- Only spend what you can afford
- Set your limits for time and money
- Gambling is not the answer to any problem
- Gambling when angry or upset is not a good idea
- Gambling shouldn’t interfere with your personal relationship
Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said:
“We are very pleased to support Safer Gambling Week.
“It is a very important initiative, and it’s important that football clubs play their part in encouraging fans that choose to gamble to do so in a safe way, and that when we promote any gambling products that it is done in a responsible manner.”
A Safer Gambling Week spokesperson said:
“We are delighted that Coventry City will be supporting Safer Gambling Week. We want to take the message about safer gambling even further this year, and are hoping that this will be our biggest campaign yet. The continued engagement and support of football clubs is enormously helpful in highlighting the Week and triggering conversations about what it means to gamble safely throughout the year.”
