The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, has pledged his support to the Against the Odds campaign, encouraging big and small clubs across the region to sign up to the charter.
“Gambling sponsorship and advertising in sport has become so normalised. We risk creating a culture where people feel they can’t enjoy sport properly without placing a bet. This needs to change.”
“Sports clubs are so influential and they regularly support local communities in so many ways. For the sake of children and young people, its time to take a stand.”
“I urge every sports club in Greater Manchester to support the Against the Odds campaign. Together we can relegate gambling sponsorship of sport to the history books.”
