Football Index Donates to Safer Gambling and Removes Logo from Football Shirts
by Glenn Baird - November 19, 2020
This weekend will see both Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers swap their Football Index logos for the Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM), as the operator looks to play their part in the Safer Gambling Week.
The index betting operator will also donate their usual sponsorship money to charity.
QPR will wear the newly designed strips on Saturday the 21st OF November, whilst Nottingham Forest, who play in the same division in England will do so on Tuesday the 24th.
Football Index co-founder Mike Bohan, said: “At Football Index, we have always made safer gambling one of our utmost priorities, and we are incredibly pleased to be able to support YGAM’s important work to educate future generations and prevent harm.
“We hope that this initiative will increase awareness and prove an important step towards ensuring young people have the information and knowledge to make informed decisions about gambling.”
YGAM director of external affairs Daniel Bliss, added: “We’re enormously grateful to both clubs and Football Index for their fantastic support. It is vital that we educate our future generations about the potential risks associated with gambling so we can collectively help prevent harm.”
