UIN HL1787, tabled on 24 February 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the sponsorship of sports teams' shirts will be included in their review of gambling.

Answered on

9 March 2020

The Government has committed to review the Gambling Act 2005 to make sure it is fit for the digital age. We will announce further details in due course.

Gambling sponsorship of sports teams must be socially responsible and must never be targeted at children. The government has also made clear that sporting bodies must consider their responsibilities to fans when entering commercial arrangements.
