Ex-England international goalkeeper, David James, has partnered with GambleAware to be an ambassador for Safer Gambling and to help raise awareness of Bet Regret.
This October, David is helping fans to beat the boredom during the International Break by providing innovative ways to keep themselves busy instead of placing an impulsive bet while bored.
David will also be encouraging fans throughout the football season to moderate their betting behaviours by supporting initiatives asking them to Think Twice before placing a bet when bored, drunk or chasing losses.
David’s words of advice can be found here.
As the latest part of the Bet Regret campaign GambleAware have partnered up with the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA). The partnership will see a number of initiatives launched throughout the 2019-20 season to encourage moderation of betting behaviours amongst football fans.
The partnership was launched in September 2019, with a survey revealing that only 10% of football supporters felt that their club was doing enough to warn of the risks of gambling.
The partnership will see a number of initiatives launched throughout the 2019-20 season to tap into football fans’ passions, including a nationwide 5-a-side football tournament – The Bet Regret Cup – and a live tour with ex-pros educating supporters about safer gambling.
