Gambling Advertising Ban at Wembley

by Glenn Baird - September 4, 2018

The potential sale of Wembley Stadium to billionaire Shahid Khan could see The UK Government stepping in to ensure that all gambling advertisements remain prohibited at the iconic home of English football.

Khan, owner of Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team and Fulham Football Club, made a 600 million pound offer to buy Wembley back in April of this year. The deal is still being negotiated, with current owners, The English Football Association, wanting to ensure that the spirit of English football is not lost in a sea of commercial branding.

Mark Burrows, financial director at the FA has stated that most of the money made from the sale of the stadium will be reinvested back into grass roots football.

It was only last year that the FA backed out of a sponsorship deal with British bookmakers Ladbrokes because they feared that it was inappropriate for the game’s major body to prohibit anyone involved in playing football from gambling whilst they profited from it.

Khan will also have to stick with the name Wembley until 2057 and will not be allowed to advertise his NFL brand within the stadium.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland sits to the north-west of mainland Europe. The United Kingdom shares a border with The Republic of Ireland and has coasts on the Atlantic Ocean, Celtic Sea, North Sea, Irish Sea and English Channel. The population of the UK is approaching the 67.6 million mark leading to a fairly densely populated land mass. The gambling sector in the United Kingdom is entirely regulated and licensed by the UKGC – the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. Should players resident In the UK wish to gamble with foreign based operators there is no history of this being treated as a criminal offence, but high levels of protection exist for UK residents playing with UK licensed operators.
