Football clubs have a unique position in their communities – so this is something they need to take seriously.” Topics: Sports betting The Football Supporters’ Association (FSA), and GambleAware have created an online ‘safer gambling hub’ that contains resources to inform football fans about the risks of impulsive betting, as part of its ongoing BeGambleAware campaign. 24th January 2020 | By Daniel O’Boylelast_img read more
