Fulham is no stranger to betting sponsorship after trading and sports betting company Spreadex became its principal partner for the next two seasons in July. While BetVictor was the club’s main shirt sponsor for the 2020/21 season, which saw Fulham relegated from the Premier League after just one season back in England’s topflight.
Betting sponsorship in sport has been a hotly debated topic in the UK in recent times. There is currently a government-led review into the 2005 Gambling Act which is discussing the potential ban of gambling sponsorship in sport. In September, former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton joined campaigners to hand in a petition to end such sponsorship in football at 10 Downing Street, which gathered 12,000 signatures.
Later that month, English Football League (EFL) club Bolton Wanderers banned all links with betting companies in a landmark move which supports the plan to cut gambling sponsorship in sport.
